The physical product will be a 1" 3-ring full entrapment binder. This will need a cover, spine, and back designed.
The background should be red, but can be stylized however you see fit. The background should communicate stress and negativity. Cracked earth and a scene of desolation could fit.
The title ("Overcoming the Stresses and Strains of Life") at the top of the course pack. I'll leave the colors and style up to you.
An ball of glowing energy (looking kind of like a glowing sun) in the middle (abstractly representing a person), with the glow extending a bit. This is a person who is overcoming the stress and negativity.
There will be chains and/or shackles shattering off of it, but that will be up a 3d artist to create and add (if you can do this, let me know--if you can't, don't worry about it just create the energy ball and rest and I'll get it over to a 3d artist to finish).
The spine of the pack should bear the title of the course and should be congruent with the front (red background, same style).
The back of the pack should be congruent with the front (red, same style) and no energy ball.
.Ai or .psd with layers clearly labeled, please.
