1. Kindle Book cover for the german ebook: "Grenzenlos: Strategien für erfolgreiche Wissensarbeit" (in english: Borderless: Stretegies for successful knowledgework"
2. What's the book about? In the book I give knowledgeworkers (software engineers, consultants, freelancer, managers etc.) 10 strategies and lots of tactics, on how to work smarter. Although it's not totally a how-to book, I focus on specific ways which the readers can implement for themselves even if they're just "normal" empoyees and somewhat caught in the corporates system on how work has to get done.
3. What's the book about and cover idea
The german word "GRENZENLOS" means boundless. The idea behind the title is that the boundaries in organizations no longer make sense: The nature of knowledgework isn't just complicated and repetitive. It is complex and one cannot foresee if decisions in the present are the right ones. This is an example for a former boundary.
I thought about a cover which shows a gap between the old work and the new natures of knowledge work. But to be honest - I can't be more specific on how to visualize my thoght. Maybe the further details will give you an idea.
4. Content I want you to design on the Cover:
Author: Bastian Wilkat
Subtitle: Strategien für erfolgreiche Wissensarbeit
Extra: "präsentiert von the-new-worker.com" <- in english: the-new-worker.com presents.. maybe there's a bit space on the covers top or bottom...
Not too fancy. Light, professional but one eyecatcher would be nice. Here are some covers I like:
This is minimal for me. I don't like stockphotos. If the possible reader gets the message of GRENZENLOS although it's typography - it would be perfect.
