I travel across the country as a youth motivational speaker, focusing on resilience, grit & perseverance. My target audience is tweens, teens & young adults.
What's your vision?
Title: Creating the Champion Within Subtitle: How to Get Up When Life Knocks You Down I need a book cover design (front, spine, back) for a physical book being self-published through Createspace. Their cover specs in this link: https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/CoverPDF.jsp Required: gender neutral in images and colors; my audience is both genders and you can get a feel for me and my message at www.mollykennedyspeaks.com; I like bold and something that stands out or pops; design to be timeless so it doesn't look dated in 2 years; any colors and images that speak to EVERY young person...not only athletes or only musicians or only artists, but EVERY teen; nothing girly and whimsical; champion in the title doesn't refer to athletes, but refers to creating a winning mindset of resilience, grit and perseverance to create a life teens can be proud of...to overcome their obstacles. When I think of Champion I think of BOLD. Title placed above the subtitle. No stock photos of actual people. The initial polls report back it makes it feel like a textbook. No images of people jumping, actual people or silhouettes, initial polls say it looks cheesy. I'd like to see variety of font style and font size with the title and subtitle. Maybe play with the word 'UP' in CAPS and the word 'down' in italics...like it got knocked down. This exact idea is not a requirement, but a variety of fonts that makes sense with the actual word would be cool. Please put this review on the front cover, either at the top or bottom: "Molly gives young people the tools to own their story and live a life of substance and meaning." ~Josh Shipp, author of "The Teen's Guide to World Domination" Please put my name, Molly Kennedy, at or near the bottom. I have attached a file for the text and my pic on the back cover. Please leave space for the ISBN code, price. Free to be creative with it all. You are the designers...I trust you:-) THANK YOU!

It all began with a design brief.
