The overall feel of the playbook is holistic well-being that encompasses physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Now pair well-being with the courage to speak up and speak out for yourself. Yes, it's a challenging concept to successfully capture with an image, which is why I am totally open to a text-only cover. No matter what though, the cover should have a corporate feel to it which distinguishes it from a "traditional" playbook. The playbook should look equally appropriate in a briefcase, in a training classroom, on a nightstand, and in a gym locker. And remember that the dimensions of the playbook are 8.5 by 11 inches because it is filled with activities that can be photocopied and used in a group training session.
Please consider the following:
* I prefer designs without female figures depicted
*No war or fighting imagery please
*When using color contrast in the word “WarriHer’s” only the “HER” and the “Playbook” should have the same color. The apostrophe s should not be the same look as “HER.”
*I prefer designs that list all 10 authors vertically on the right side of the cover, blocking them off with a different background color than the main background color.
* A white background would be my LAST choice but I would consider it with the right design
* All authors' names must appear on the cover without the cover looking crowded
* Please keep the number of font styles to a minimum
* Though it's a workbook, I am going for a professional polished basic look versus a look that is too casual or too playful
*I don't like landscapes as it doesn't encompass both well-being and self-advocacy
*Please treat the word "the" in the title as insignificant.
*If you are using images in your design, please make sure that it incorporates both ideas of well-being and self-advocacy. Well-being involves thriving physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It is not just about exercise. Self-advocacy is about someone speaking up for herself. Images have to capture what the book is about – well-being and self-advocacy.
*The main two words of the title to focus on are "WarriHER's Playbook" and the two words should be treated as equally as possible.
*Though the book has no subtitle, please treat the part of the title that says "on well-being and self-advocacy" as if it were a subtitle.
*All ten authors should be considered equals, with only a slight distinction being given to the lead author's name.
*The order of the authors names should appear exactly in the order in which they were provided in the brief. The name ChrisTiana ObeySumner is not a space or cap letter typo. This is how her name is written.
*If you want me to consider a white background, please make it unique in some way. Otherwise, please do not submit a cover with a white background.
