Hello! Thanks for reading. I can't wait to see your work! Here's what we need:
AIM: an e-book cover that works well as a thumbnail.
WHY? It's mainly targeted to Android phone users through Facebook. This means that the cover must grab their attention as they scroll through many Facebook posts.
The must see immediately that the book:
a) teaches English
B) makes learning fun, easy
TARGET GROUP: 18-30 year old trendy, busy, progressive, successful office staff - Gen Y - they work on laptops at Starbucks - single, ambitious, multi cultural, happy, like to work hard and play hard. Clean living, cool but still family oriented. Global! (NOT America lovers)They want to learn English for practical purposes.
MY IDEA: manga / comic book cover style - think Simpsons meets Starbucks. Simple. Maybe one character from the book (made more handsome) at cafe, enjoying conversation, telling a joke, laptop, coffee, alive, animated gesturing.
BUT OPEN TO ANYTHING: If you have a better idea, I am open to anything. Surprise me! But, viewers must instantly 'get' that this is an English phrase book.
LOGO: Hard cover title logo works very well as a thumbnail - If you can use it, great! Feel free to change the colours. If you have a better idea, fine.
MORE JOBS: There will likely be 3 more covers in this series. I may adapt it for hard cover too.
