DESIGN BRIEF – Inspirational Book Book Title: Turning Inspiration Into Action: How to connect to the powers you need to conquer negativity, act on the best opportunities, and live the life of your dreams
Author’s Name: Matt Gersper https://www.amazon.com/author/mattgersper
Turning Inspiration Into Action is about a time-tested, easy to understand, 3-step process that works for anyone desiring a better life. Whether you’re young or old, rich or poor, if you struggle to turn your big ideas into reality, this book is for you. It teaches how to select the right big ideas for you (and disregard the rest), how to turn them from ideas into action, and create your absolute best life. The transformational process is based on the answer to three questions: WHAT inspires you... WHY is it important to you... and HOW will you bring it into your life. The reader learns about the FORCE of gravity (negative forces like procrastination, self-doubt, and busyness that hold a life in place), and about two powers they can use to overcome gravity and create the life of their dreams; the POWER of the HEART...and the POWER of the UNIVERSE.
The goal of the book cover is to "pop off the shelf" as a small thumbnail on the Amazon platform, as well as a book measuring 5.5 x 8.5 with a 0.72” spine. It should look great on our Books page at Happy Living: http://www.happyliving.com/books/
The design should be simple, bold, and eye-catching. The imagery should make the viewer feel inspired –and as if reading the book will give them special knowledge, motivation, and a secret they can to use to achieve their dreams. It’s important the book catches the eye and stands out in the crowded self-help category.
We are looking for a design that sells, not something that just looks pretty. It is crucial that the book design is polished and engaging. We are open to any imagery or illustration you choose. Here are a few words that come to mind when thinking of our book: inspiration, transformation, reflection, priority, action, heart, goals, growth, passion, power, motivation, dreams, success, clarity, and fulfillment.
We like a bold color palette that evokes joy, happiness, and success. We like it when book titles stand out and it is clear what the book is about right away. (You do not have to use our company’s color palette, but for reference our primary colors are: PMS 639C and White. We use the following secondary colors: PMS Orange 021C, PMS 7408C, PMS 375C, PMS 2975C, PMS 3005C, PMS 2617C, Cool Gray 2C, Warm Gray 7C, Warm Gray 11C.)
We like the covers for the following titles:
The Belief Road Map (our first book)
Winter Men by Jesper Bugge Kold,
All the Lasting Thingsby David Hopson
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
Blue: A Novel by Danielle Steel
Note that on the back cover we would like the ISBN and the Happy Living logo on the bottom. Contest is guaranteed and blind!
