latasha.hussey got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a fun and humorous eBook cover for "Does My Course Look Fat?"
Check out latasha.hussey's Book cover contest…
I am writing an eBook for higher education instructors who teach online. The audience of the book would be online instructors, specifically in higher education, but any online instructor could probably benefit from it.
What's your vision?
I need an eBook cover for my book "Does My Course Look Fat? 5 Ways to Maintain a Healthy Online Course". I will be selling the ebook through major online retailers so it needs to be in a format acceptable for that and online advertising. The ebook has not been released, but I want to drum up interest in the meantime so they know its coming soon. As you can tell from the title, the eBook cover should be humorous. Not like side splitting funny, but chuckle funny. Here are the colors I like: #77E0E4 Turquoise Blue #F59D15 Dark Tangerine #5D6365 Pale Sky #FFFFFF White Fun and appealing fonts are preferred. The book will be funny, easy-to-read, understand, and short.
Yes. Here is a description of a fat course: A fat course is an virtual course having a large amount of excess content that may overwhelm, confuse, frustrate, irritate, or annoy students. Here are the symptoms: ¥ Your students feel overwhelmed with information. ¥ You abuse the color red. ¥ Your course suffers from oversized fonts. ¥ Your course has obese paragraphs. ¥ Your hyperlinks are causing heartburn. UPDATE: I do have some other ideas like putting the word "course" on a scale or in a pair of tight jeans, which is where I got the concept. Maybe the teacher can be made of documents looking in a mirror. Hee hee. The possibilities are endless. UPDATE 2: Other possibilities are having documents stuffed in a laptop. OR If you can just rock a text only design using my color scheme, I'd be happy to see that as well. Maybe simple is better. OR Maybe a thought bubble with the main title in it. Perhaps that will help generate some ideas when designing the cover.
