Check out ayalanolan's Book cover contest…
The Ayala Method
Nolan Ayala is an INFJ, philosopher, and personality typology theorist. He is an alumnus of Thomas Aquinas College.
The Ayala Method is about how to apply personality typology to the world of football/soccer. (Genre is a mix of psychology and football/soccer theory.)
Adults. Primarily football/soccer coaches, managers, scouts. Also philosophers and those interested in personality typology.
Book cover type
The book size is 6x9 hardcover, no case, matte finish. The text inside the book is in Narkisim font, so I would like the font outside to compliment it if not match it. The outside font doesn't have to be Narkisim. Themes that I want in the cover image are: growth, transformation, evolution, power, beauty, destiny. As the book is about football/soccer, I want that to be clearly noticed from the cover. Please include an outline of a male player (not goalkeeper) and a football/soccer ball that looks like planet earth. Seek to create a cover image and style that incorporates the following descriptors: intense, powerful, mysterious, intricate, refined. Bonus points if you incorporate the golden ratio in the design.
What to avoid
Avoid designs that look boring, messy, confusing
It all began with a design brief.
