antoinetta got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create Bookcover for: The Motivation Cure - A Guide to a Healthy Sense of Self -
Check out antoinetta's Book cover contest…
The purpose of HEALTHYSENSEOFSELF is to educate people how to become "fully your self" which leads to being healthier, happier and more successful, both personally and professionally. It is to waken up the child within every person who has unfinished business with their (own) parent but often is not aware of it. People with emotional problems & therapists are our number 1 target audience,
What's your vision?
1) Convert our logo (see below) into a Vector based file Details: there are two images of the logo: one with a drop shadow and one without. We would like a separate file of each one. 2) Book cover (width) 6 x (approx spine)0.9 x (height)9 The book is going to be a second edition of an already existing book that has a text book format: 8x10 and has 260 pages (spine 5/8"). The title will be changed as well: The Motivation Cure subtitle: A Guide to a Healthy Sense of Self! author: Antoinetta Vogels The design needs to reflect the existing one, as shown below but be brought to the next level - better quality image, more appealing to our ideal readers. Stay within the brand as much as possible. We generally like the designs of our book covers - but we want them to be developed a little more. The heart doesn't so much stand for love though. It is more "fill in your innerself with self-awareness". I am not sure about the page count in this format so the size of the spine is not quite clear. Can the spine size be adjusted in a later phase? It depends on the page count.
It is a self-help book but meant to attract people that pay good money to reap the benefits of it - therapists - doctors all sorts - businesses to reduce unhappy employees (or often sick) - increase productivity, creativity and profit. Parents who want to solve their issues and do the right thing for their kids - peace advocates - church leaders - so a not too touchy feely look but inviting to take action, more practicle , down to earth. Soft cover - affordable for many When we truly like your design we might want you to do a make over of the other books - plus their translations. Here is an inspiration board for you to look at: https://www.pinterest.com/HealthySoS/the-language-of-hysos/ I want to make sure everyone sees the comments below and since I have initially posted them on Announcements and I am not sure if everyone will go there, or if it is even the right place for it, I thought to copy them in here under Notes: Here are some additional clues: 1) The design needs to be repeatable in different colors. The idea is to create "a family" of Sense of Self - books - all distinctly different but clearly of the same family. 2) I want to withdraw the head shot with the black shirt but you can use it as a place holder - I trust I can provide a better one if needed be in that color 3) The colors red and green are crucial in the content of the book: You have to move from the red hot circle of addiction/dependency to the soothing green path of being fully yourself. I will try and upload later a few pictures that show that aspect Hope that helps Today 10/4/2015 - 1.30 PST - I have received some great designs this morning. Still I would like to add the following - an aspect I had not worded yet but that may open some new view points - I got feedback that quite a number of people do not like the heart/brain idea in general - so I would like to try something else and ask you to leave those out for now and consider expressing the following through text only: The book is about Motivation that can be Direct (healthy, green) or Indirect (unhealthy - red). If you (the reader, client) are not clear that you are operating from an Indirect Motivation you are in trouble: things do not work out for you- you may loose relationships- money-health etc. If you clean up your motivation (which is the purpose of the book to help you with) you will be healthy, happy and productive. As an example of what I mean for the design I would like to give this suggestion: I imagine Motivation going from blurry to sharp and clean (from red to green).
