The goal of the book is to stand out on the Amazon platform as a small thumbnail, as well as a 5.5x8.5 book with 72” spine. The imagery should make the viewer feel that the book (and the author) is the authority on the topic of goal-setting, self-discovery, finding your passion, and changing your life.
The reader should feel that they must have this book if they are thinking of leaving their job they hate, to find happiness, pursuing a job they love. It’s more important that the book “pops off the shelf” or stands out and catches the eye quickly. The most important part of the design is that it sells, not that it looks pretty or well-designed.
I am open to the any image or illustration you choose. Here a few words that come to mind when thinking of my book: opportunity, simplicity, action, strategy, targeted, content, freedom, passion, motivation, success, strength, discovery, breakthrough, breaking away from status quo.
I like a bold color palette. I like bold titles that you know right away what the title was and what it was about, not too busy and with simple color schemes. 2–3 colors.
