Maximizing Game Feel Through Sound: A Composer/Sound Designer’s Approach to Upgrading your Game’s Impact
Akash Thakkar is an award-winning composer, sound designer, and public speaker within the video game industry. Inspired at a very young age by the background music of his favorite video game, he eventually married his two loves, video games and music, to find his career.
He is a graduate from the Berklee College of Music where he was both an instructor and leader of the game audio community. Akash has worked at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as both a researcher and audio designer and performed with musical legends. He has worked on everything from full orchestral pieces to explosion sound effects for dozens of video game projects. His aim in composing and designing music and sound for video games is to provide a massive emotional impact to everyone who plays them. Akash absolutely loves to share his knowledge and has had the honor of speaking at events and conferences around the world.
This book is for video game developers. It aims to teach developers how they can use audio in their video games to maximize how good their game feels to their players.
This is for game developers who are typically very tech-savvy, around 25-40, mostly male, and mostly North American and Western European.
I love the creativity in this logo. It's eye catching, classy, and immediately readable.
I love this book cover, especially the colors and abstractness of it.

Other color requirements
I would prefer colors to compliment the logo that I've attached. This cover will be on the back of my business cards (which look similar to the logo I've attached), so something that compliments that image would be great.
I would very much like something that isn't too formal. I would like something that is sleek and modern looking. I've attached a picture of my logo, and would love a cover that compliments the general look of that.
