I loved how creative the idea was...really outside the box. And it aligned with my last book which I appreciated.
The designer created an original design that is a perfect fit for my vision / image request.
Was great to work with... very responsive to edits. I would recommend his work anytime.

This book is a biography of one of pioneers of stem cell research, Professor Robert Tindle.
It is a popular science biography. Prof Tindle discovered the stem cells which were used to save the life of his own daughter. This came to the attention of the media.
The book is aimed at the general bookshop reader.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Professor of Immunology Robert Tindle has written a book about his life and discoveries in science. The book details his medical breakthroughs in stem cell research and his evolutionary biology research in the Galapagos Islands.
Prof Tindle came to media attention when his stem cell discoveries were used to save the life of his daughter Danielle, and two TV specials were filmed about it.
We are seeking the design of a front cover, back cover and spine of the book.
Because of the biographical nature of the book, we would like to use photos of Prof Tindle as part of the design. These photos are attached as part of the brief.
A modern and sophisticated look to the font choice and design elements are key to the successful design. Other than that designers are free to be creative. We are open to graphical elements incorporated with the photo/text if the look is there.
The colour photo attached is for the front cover of the book. The black and white is for the rear.
The title of the book is "A Curious Life".
The author is to be written as "Robert Tindle".
The byline to the title is "One man's path to discovery and medical breakthrough."
The rear cover description will read as follows:
"From the slums and religious indoctrination of northern England to front-line research institutions worldwide, stem cell pioneer Robert Tindle's relentless curiosity led him to a remarkable career in fields as disparate as evolutionary biology and immunotherapy for cancer. From years of field work on the Galapagos Islands to pioneering breakthroughs in biomedical research in Australia and the United Kingdom, this book documents for the first time his path to scientific discovery, and chronicles how his own discoveries were used to save the life of his daughter. A testament to the relentless expansion of scientific knowledge, and what this means for humankind’s perception of its identity in the cosmos, this book captures an incredible journey of discovery and the deeply personal implications of progress.
