A simple book cover that conveys the idea of a journey, or taking action, achieving an outcome, etc. Some good references are Atomic Habits by James Clear, and The Obstacle Is The Way by Ryan Holiday The font for Craftsman Creative and the author name should be Roboto Slab Bold, the subtitle ideally hand-written (I can provide a sample)
What to avoid

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
