What colors do you want to see in your design?
The title is long so if we can add art or visuals to capture the idea that would be helpful. PM's can be linear thinkers and I am trying to change them to be more people oriented because projects are all about people. The book revolves around "being connected" for all of us. As Winston Churchill stated- "Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any county can have" the environments we are building are very important because it affects all of us and our health. Words to describe the mood of the cover is that you are connected, you have a passion for what you do in life, and you want to feel that what you do makes a difference that is why you are attracted to this book. I have always thought that having some cartoons would help to lighten things up and make the book fun so the audience learn better. When I teach my workshops they are always very interactive, I break people up into groups and I use lego's to help them collaborate together.
What to avoid
I have a logo design that I would like the designers to use and make sure any font that you use matches or compliments that design.
