What's your vision?
This is a fun and entertaining book looking at the biggest missing component in health today: S-L-E-E-P. This book doesn't overload readers with boring facts, but instead highlights the most useful studies on sleep benefits, and how to use them to their advantage. Each chapter concludes with action steps to help the reader sleep better immediately. Fun tone, inspirational, and educational at the same time. Readers will discover how to improve their body, brain, and health overall with the wonderful information packed into this book. Goals of the book: 1. To help readers deeply understand the impact that sleep has on body composition, brain health, and productivity. 2. To provide specific action steps that readers can use to radically improve their sleep. We need a cover designed for a paperback book and slight modifications for Kindle readers. We want something relatively simple and easy to read on Amazon.com icons. There are a couple basic ideas that we have, but we are definitely open to artistic inspiration. One idea is to have a cloud that resembles the image of a brain surrounding (or under) the book title. This is our favorite cover concept. We looked around and found a similar idea on the book "Grain Brain" -> http://primaldocs.com/shop/grain-brain/. We would definitely want a more appealing and complimentary style of font with our design. Another idea is a clean cover with mainly text (like this one: http://www.diabetesdaily.com/voices/2014/01/the-calorie-myth-youve-believed-for-decades/ but with better colors) and a small image of a brain outline (like a small symbol) above or below the title. This is our favorite cover concept! TITLE: Sleep Smarter SUBTITLE: 21 Proven Tips To Sleep Your Way To A Better Body, Better Health, And Bigger Success AUTHOR: Shawn Stevenson
We're going to provide expert reviews for the back cover, so we've attached some samples that can be used for now. Also attached are the dimensions for Kindle. We'll have the dimensions for the spine/physical book for the contest winner when the book layout is complete. We'd really like to keep the front cover simple, clean, and eye-catching. Nothing to complex is needed, just a designer with a great ability to make simple things look engaging.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Ibrahim on the development of my first book cover. I truly appreciate his level of expertise and professionalism. I was unclear at a couple of points in the development process, and Ibrahim walked me through the challenges and answered all of my questions. Not to mention that he most patiently and expeditiously responded to my edit requests repeatedly until I was satisfied. Ibrahim M Ibrahim has my highest recommendation, and I plan to work with him again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
