redslice got their new book cover by running a design contest:
The Juicy Guides: Create series of eBook covers for mini guides for entrepreneurs
Check out redslice's Book cover contest…
Business & Consulting
I am creating a series of mini eBooks with advice around various topics (entrepreneurship, branding, time management) for entrepreneurs and business owners (this could include people starting a non-profit or even artists/actors/authors). The target audience is solo entrepreneurs, small business owners or artists. They tend to be women between the ages of 30 and 55 and are ambitious, seek business advice as well as inspiration and see themselves not just building a business, but a lifestyle. This business is often a personal passion.
What's your vision?
I am creating a series of guides and starting with 4 so I need 4 eBook covers but they all have to work together as part of The Juicy Guide series. As these will only be sold on Amazon, the thumbnail and title really have to pop - think of seeing it in a search list on Amazon and making sure it stands out! They all need to also say somewhere on the cover (smaller) The Juicy Guide Series. You can see my existing brand look and vibe (www.red-slice.com) and I can have provided my existing color palette that my brand already uses (I really like the bright purples and teals I'm using now so those could work well for this series), but I'd like to to be creative here and not be too matchy matchy with the core brand colors of red and green, as I I already have a book out there called Branding Basics for Small Business which uses those colors primarily (by design). My other book looks completely different but totally cool, clean and fresh: Rebooting My Brain (both covers can be found under www.red-slice.com under Books). These new ones are just mini eBooks, though. My brand is fresh, sassy, crisp. My writing voice is inspired by Tina Fey. Practical, witty/quick, conversational, smart (I like to think, anyway!) The 4 I'm starting with are: The Juicy Guide to Entrepreneurship: Advice on How to Energize your Brand and Squeeze More Soul into your Business The Juicy Guide to Brand Building: Advice on How to Attract Rabid Fans and Amplify Your Message The Juicy Guide to Time Management and Goal Setting: Advice on How to Wrangle Your Calendar and Slay Overwhelm (working title) The Juicy Guide to Entrepreneurial Inspiration: Advice on How to Spark Your Creativity and Activate your Inner Fire
Excited to see what you've got! Remember these are called The Juicy Guide so you can play with that. They are meant to be digestible nuggets of tips and advice, not an academic or "traditional" business book. And please also remember, again, this will only be sold online as an eBook so the design HAS to work as a stand-out thumbnail from an Amazon search. Whether you do that with color, type or visual is up to you!

I've had the pleasure to work with LianaM before and as usual, she is such a professional. I appreciate her patience with me and her excellence in the designs. I've received so many compliments on the designs and appreciate her! I'll work with her again if the need arises for sure!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
