After seeing what's working and what's not working, you now have full
creative license to do whatever you want with the cover.
Things I DON'T want to see:
Lots of red
Fist in the air
Anything that hints at violence
Anything similar to Russell Brand's book 'Revolution'
Educational symbols like books, pencils, teachers, blackboards, etc.
Thing I DO want to see:
Hints at a better world
Freedom from indoctrination and oppression
The 'big picture' of humanity
I know some of you have had a really hard time so far during this
process, and I want people to understand that this is really really
tough for me too. It's hugely emotional for me.. I'm constantly
figuring out what works and what doesn't. This book is my life right
now, so you can understand why I want it to look just right.
Thanks again for all your work!
The book is called 'Education Revolution'. It's non-fiction.
It looks at everything that is wrong with the system and works on a
solutions-based approach. I also offer up an entirely new model for
education I call 'The Six Dimension Model'.
The book is meant to get people thinking about where the current
education system is taking us, and to inspire people to move in a new
direction... a very positive
message. See attached 'blurb' for a better understanding of the book.
My vision for the cover is this: ---- UPDATE ----
THE PREVIOUS BRIEF HAS BEEN DELETED.
YOU NOW HAVE FULL CREATIVE LICENSE TO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH THE
CONCEPT OF 'EDUCATION REVOLUTION'.
So long as you honor the book's message (read the blurb if unsure).
I find that things don't work out as well when I give very specific
ideas, because they always look better in my head than they do on the
The only thing I will say is: Think of the 'big picture'... not just
school... not just education... but the future of humanity itself.
After all, education directly affects the future of humanity and
our species ends up.
I need a front, spine and back as one image, plus the editable files
so I can alter the width of the spine as per publishing requirements.
Dimensions are as follows:
FRONT: 5.25" x 8"
BACK: 5.25" x 8"
SPINE WIDTH: 0.53"
Blurb is attached. You have creative license to make the blurb look
professional. If you can leave a box for a photo next to the
that's about me, I can add the photo in at a later time.
Have also attached a rough template of the specs.
I'm a great communicator and will give detailed constructive feedback
as the process moves along. I think I've got a good grasp of what
'works' and what doesn't, so you'll find I am easy to work with.
I look forward to seeing this come to life...
Thanks for all your hard work!
