How PhilDobbie started their print or packaging design journey

Organization name

Phil Dobbie

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

I am a journalist who has just written his first novel. I am self-publishing with Amazon's CreateSpace (print on demand) and I need a design that's more inspiring than the one I have created for free using their templates!

What industry do you think your business is most related to?

Entertainment & The Arts

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I want a cover for a humorous (satirical) novel called The Incumbent. You can read the first chapter and a brief summary at http://theincumbent.phildobbie.com. I have attached a (typo-ridden) copy of the first five chapters to give you a flavour of the novel.

The back needs to include the summary shown on the current design, also attached, but I may have a couple of quotes from readers to include in a later design, so there needs to be allowance for that.

It's a 6 x 9 paperback, that needs to follow the design specks for CreateSpace - https://www.createspace.com/Product…verPDF.jsp

Although it needs to work as a spread (front and back and binding), the cover needs to stand alone and this is all that'll be seen by people buying the KIndle version of the book.
