There will be 30 different books with different titles - all with same cover artwork. We are looking for 1 book cover artwork and 30 editable files. The first sample book title we'd like to see is called "Lean Professional"
We are a provider of continuing improvement training and certification to thousands of individuals and corporations in almost 100 countries world wide. We are looking to have a set of 30 books created - all with the same cover artwork - however we need to have the book title and spine to be unique to each book.
students who have purchased our courses will also receive a copy of the course books.
Book cover type
We will be using Mimeo - perfect bound to print and distribute our books. Spine width will vary from approximately .292 (smallest) to .891 (largest) so while the books will be different sizes, we'd like the font and look of the books to be the same so when they are sitting on a bookshelf, they still look like a set. We have been told from Mimeo that if we give them 3 separate files for the front, back and spine, they can create the entire wrap around cover and ensure the spine width is correct. Therefore the design can be 3 files that create one book cover.
We like the simple marketing, use of colors and imagery. We'd like the final design to look more professional.
This is a sample from our printer, we like the continuous feel of the front, spine and back, however we are not looking for a nature feel like this.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
we would like the look and feel of the books to be similar to how our website looks. Our company's focus is on training for the business professional, so we'd like to keep that type of feel for the book cover artwork.
What to avoid
We don't mind stock imagery, however we would prefer it to look professional and unique. No cartoons or older imagery. The attached sample cover is not what we are looking for in terms of artwork, however it does show how we'd like to have a continuous feel for the front, spine and back.
