Description

I have just completed an e-book called Pitch Elevation. It's a guide book on how to pitch better. Not baseball pitching - but pitching as an agency to get new business. The book will be a PDF. i am not selling it on amazon - yet. the idea is for it to get me better known in the industry and read by decision makers.

i need a cover. i do not need a back cover.

ideas i have so far:

there are signs on mountains that display the elevation - they are green and sau things like "Elevation: 7,500 feet" - that could work using the title Pitch Elevation.

maybe an airplane taking off on an angle up in to the sky?

there could be a play on words and use baseball imagery?

i am open.

the copy needs to be:

Pitch Elevation

You Guide To Become A Better Presenter

By Michael Weiss

NOTE: SO FAR THE DESIGNERS ARE BEING TOO LITERAL. THIS IS NOT A BOOK ABOUT BASEBALL. AS WELL, THE PLANES ARE TOO LITERAL. THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT HOW TO BETTER PRESENT AND SELL SERVICES. THE AUDIENCES ARE AD AGENCIES, DIGITAL AGENCIES, CREATIVE AGENCIES. PEOPLE WHO NEED TO GO INTO COMPANIES AND SELL THEIR IDEAS AND SERVICES. PEOPLE WHO PITCH NEW BUSINESS,

Further requirements

i want this to be professional looking. not cute. but it can be fun.
colorful is better than plain.
