Accounting & Financial
We are a consulting agency to creative business owners. Our target market includes designers eg graphic designers, fashion, accessories, jewellery, PR, interior designers, music etc etc. We are a well established agency offering consulting primarily in profit and cashflow for creatives. I am also a teacher in finance and small business at one of Australia's top fashion schools.
What's your vision?
We require a book cover to be designed. The book title is 'The Creative Collection'. It is a book aimed at creative business owners who are serious about their business and who understand the importance of making a profit which gives them the freedom to set up a business model or structure that will free them up to be able to spend more time creating and less on the business side. it is a practical guide which will be in the interior format of more of a magazine than a book. However I do not necessarily want the cover to be too serious. It is aimed at creative designers so needs to be clever, catching and different from standard book covers. I havent yet written the back blurb but maybe you could mock one up without actual text in it that makes sense, then we can insert that text as necessary. Will also need to include an ISBN I need a front cover, spine and back cover, and also a bookmark design (double sided). The back has to include a photo of the author Think modern, fresh, cool, uncluttered, upmarket, classy, stylish. I don’t want something that looks crafty. it must stand out and make people want to pick it up and read it. I don't want anything that is cartoony. something that is a bit quirky or has a sense of humour is ok but not essential. The book must be designed to appeal to creatives. I have uploaded a file of the type of things I like in other covers. I would prefer a black or white background. Use of colour would be great. The target market are primarily female but should not discount males either. The design should ideally wrap around the book, continuing around the spine, rather than the spine being a separate entity. The cover also needs to look great as a thumbnail, as the book will be viewed in that way by online shoppers. So, much as we do love detailed designs, we also need you to find a balance there & also create something bold that won't be lost when the image is viewed at thumbnail size. Also, the cover will be used on an ebook in the future, so we need something that can be redesigned later into ebook format easily.
Any questions at all please feel free to ask. Also if you want to use or incorporate our logo in any way that can be obtained from our website accountsstudio.com.au or we can send you a file. Please note I have attached a file which has examples of the type and styles of designs we like.
