I would love the cover for my first book designed please;
Cover Size: 6 x 9 inches
Spine width: 1 inch
The Title: Leadership Skills Reduce the Bills
Sub Title: 6 Steps Every Leader Must Know To Reduce Staff Turnover And Increase Productivity
Author Name: Lisa Wiking
Core Message: How to become a successful leader in business which is heavily weighted around the emotional intelligence of the leader. Also known as soft skills of leadership. Ultimately it's a personal development book for leaders giving them the knowledge to become a successful leader. My greatest point of difference is that I'm passionate about the reader knowing 'how' to apply the learning in this book, so there are very clear steps to implementation of all aspects of the book.
Cover Design Requirements/Requests
Please have the title in the top half of the cover - I'd like the word leadership to stand out in the title (but not like a sore thumb) - directly below add the subtitle
Authors name at the bottom
Please submit the front cover, the spine AND the back cover
I am flexible with the colours however my logo is blue, green with a splash of red. These are my preferred colours. I don't want any pinks or purples, I'm looking for a professional look with 'professional colours'.
Ultimately I'd like the majority of the front cover to be white with a clean crisp image.
I think the message would be clearly conveyed with an image of cost reduction, cutting costs, reducing expenses. For example a graph or an arrow. It's your creative licence and I'm open to any and all ideas on what image is used. I have attached a couple of images to get the creative juices flowing.
I'm happy to purchase stock photos if you find a great one.
Get creative, this is a very easy design.
Please leave a blank white space on the bottom right hand corner of the back cover for the ISBN - Bar code that measures 1 inch tall x 1.75 inches wide.
Please include my Motivational Leadership Logo somewhere on the back cover, not too big, possibly at the top with testimonials surrounding it.
Please include the GIP Logo of my publishing house on the back cover at the bottom somewhere and in the centre / bottom / middle of the spine.
The cover design should appear as a consistent professionally designed book cover with all parts and components well integrated and connected.
Also I will need the photo shop/ design file with editable layers at the end when it comes to the design hand over, not just the jpeg version.
Thank you - I'll be here to work with you on the designs and will continue to give you feedback as we go.
