How chad.williams.iii started their book cover journey
Escape the Law: The Journey from Lawyer to Entrepreneur
Chad Williams is an entrepreneur, investor, writer and former partner in an AmLaw 200 law firm. His company, align5, is a strategic consulting and boutique investment banking firm that coaches growth company entrepreneurs as they scale their businesses and prepare to maximize value upon exit. He lives outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with his wife, 4 children and 2 dogs.
The once gilded path from law school student to wealthy lawyer has all but vanished. More importantly, even those lawyers who are “successful” by traditional standards are absolutely miserable in the profession and want to find a way out. In Escape the Law: The Journey from Lawyer to Entrepreneur, Chad Williams provides engaging and inspiring profiles of nearly 60 individuals who successfully made the transition from law to business. This book is an absolute must read for anyone considering law school, in law school or disenchanted with the profession and seeking a way out.
Aspiring or currently practicing lawyers, as well as those interested in reading about entrepreneurs and business people who have successfully transitioned from one career path to another.
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
The colors should be bold and bright with clean lines.
I like Abstract Expressionism, Color Field and other contemporary art. I envision a cover using something like Ellsworth Kelly's Red/Blue (which is a royal blue background with a red oval protruding from the lower left corner, which for the book cover would wrap around from the back to the front of the book). I would like to see a blue background with either bright orange or bright green oval, or a bright green (or orange) background with a royal blue oval. The lettering should be a bright white in an engaging, but simple (clean) font.
What to avoid
I don't want any imagery or pictures on the book. I want it to be a very clean design.
