This book is designed for beginner project managers and beginner Microsoft Project users so I do not want the design to be too noisy or complicated. I prefer abstract designs.
About how I work on 99Designs:
1) I am incredibly responsive and will get back to you within hours, and no later than a day.
2) Whether I like or dislike a design, you will always receive feedback.
3) I want unique designs, so will reject designs that are flagrant copies of someone else's hard work.
4) The more responsive you are, the better chance of my selecting you.
Final design files:
1) This book will go to print on approximately 8.5x11 paper.
2) All designs should be scalable, using Adobe Illustrator. In the case you are using images, please select hi-res images. I will consider PhotoShop files as well.
3) You must provide the original file (AI or PSD).
4) I have a general preference for OpenSans but whatever font you use, it must be freely available with a link to the download location (i.e. FontSquirrel).
