Organization industry



I really need a designer who wants to become part of my team. I have several projects coming, this first book is critical to have the pop to get the message out!
Anyone who is remotely connected to dance or mime, and is interested in further developing their dance or mime gift, should have this book!
The title is "The Prophetic DANCER and MIME.
(With emphasis on Prophetic, Mime, and Dancer)
I will need front and back cover, e-book cover, (not a tiny thumbnail). Potentially future work will involve many other creative projects, but first a home run with this book. I have the title, book is in final edit and formatting. New website is being launched In 10 days.
Looking forward to finding a very creative person to join me. This will be a long term potentially very lucrative endeavor: Step up and hit a dinger!
Further requirements
I would like to have my publisher logo on the back and on the spine of the book. (I am a self-publisher!)
ISBN-code and Picture are available for back cover
I would require the Photo Shop version of the final, for promos, posters slides, etc.

Cover Description:
The cover of the book as a beginning- initial concept have the following:

Colors: Black, White, and Red .

Base should start as white at the top and fade to Black at the bottom, giving some gray scale in between. (or creative as deigner sees need)
Items that must be included:

1. In the lower left corner either a full or half face/profile of a mime image: FACE ONLY (See attached examples.
2. In the upper right hand corner a captivating image of a dancer reasonably clothed or in dance attire
(Preference is male and female ballet team in an expressive pose or action shot.)
3. My name should be somewhere on the cover.(preferably at the bottom.
4. The words (Title) “The prophetic MIME & (or and) DANCER” should be on front cover.
The emphasis should be on” MIME” and “DANCER” with the next level of emphasis on “Prophetic”.. .
5. Those words should be placed maybe placed with The Mime face under the word “mime”… and the dance image on top of the word “ dancer” . You may want to put title on upper third of cover if possible

Cover designer has creative freedom to diviate from the description, if they feel they can offer something more catching and descriptive

The theme of this book is spiritual, and solemn. There should be a mystique/ or reverence to the color. This cover somehow, at minimum should communicate seriousness, and a solemn, but sincere approach to the unknown or the less known.

The goal theme of this book is God, (or The Holy spirit, or “The spiritual force,) “Speaking through the movements of a Mime or dance OR GOD speaking… If that can be incorporated in a serious way, all the better.

Last, please avoid any and all images, and fonts that communicate or suggest, clown, circus, carnival, laughter/amusement. This is serious business… God speaking!

Further requirements

The stock photos are only a suggestion and samples to give you an idea. I believe black and white images(with a little color detailing) will give it the "pop" the cover needs, especially with the candy apple red, details and application where needed.

Target audience is 18-50, Christian arts and worship! Radical, fresh interactive, eager! Across racial and ethnic lines, love to perform and entertain, (Get befor people)... Spiritual, not churchy, nor traditional!

Book description: (Back Cover)

The Prophetic Mime and Dancer is a must for all dancers and mimes that want to tap into the flow and mind of God with their ministry. This book by Prophetic Apostle David Brown is a must read for beginning as well as well-seasoned mimes and dancers!

In this New Millennium move, God is speaking to the people beyond the written and the spoken Word! When the mime and the dancer become fully yielded to the move of the Holy Spirit, the Presence of God, the Shekinah, the Glory cloud descends!

What are the results? Miracles, signs, wonders, along with break-through elevation to new dimensions and levels in the Holy Spirit! God speaks and sends the Word of the LORD through the anointing of the dancer and the mime! What you will learn from this book:

• How to yield yourself for optimum prophetic flow

• Using dance and mime to set atmosphere and spiritual climate

• Interpreting the Word of the Lord through mime and dance, as well as speaking it forth verbally

• Avoiding pitfalls and dangers related and common among prophetic arts and expression
