Hello designers. We’d like for you to design a 6” x 9” paperback for us. Here’s the information on the book:
Title: High-Impact Interview Questions
Edition: Second Edition
Subtitle: 701 Behavior-Based Questions to Find the Right Person for Every Job
Author: Victoria A. Hoevemeyer
Foreword by Paul Falcone, author of 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire
Audience: Managers at every level and some Human Resource professionals.
Over all “look and feel”: We would like something very modern and friendly and energetic.
Possible imagery: The obvious image is something that plays with a question mark — but in a sophisticated way. Another possible image is something about interviewing people or finding the right person for a job. Please don’t use the image of a traditional businessmen in a suit. We don’t want a “stock photo” shot of a businessperson being interviewed. If you show two or more people they should include a variety of races and genders. Also please don’t use a “target” image at someone — too violent!
ONE possible idea would be to have HIGH-IMPACT in a script, but it needs to look professional, not rebellious. Could also have the words HIGH-IMPACT somehow affecting INTERVIEW QUESTIONS.
Another possible idea: arrows coming from HIGH-IMPACT towards INTERVIEW QUESTIONS. Not sure that’s logical, though.
Important NOTE: the most important part of the title is INTERVIEW QUESTIONS, because that’s what the book is about. Make sure it is dominant.
Published books with similar feel: I’m attaching a group of jackets called EnergeticPracticalBusiness. They are not related to the topic of this book, but I think the simplicity and modern energy they all have is good — although there’s quite a variety
Some information about the book is attached.
NOTE #1: Please show me your designs as a face-front, flat image. We prefer jpgs that are about 1200 pixels tall. We do not want to see a spine or a back cover.
NOTE #2: Please do not send many variations on a given design (I can’t look through all of them). Pick 1 - 4 designs that YOU think works best.
Thanks, Cathleen Ouderkirk
