Hello designers. We’d like for you to design a 6.125” x 9.25” hardcover for us. Here’s information on the design:
Title: Sell with a Story
Subtitle: How to Capture Attention, Build Trust, and Close the Sale
Authors: Paul Smith
Over all “look and feel": We want it to feel very contemporary and have an intriguing quality (an interesting thought) to it, but it should be combined with a bit of a “sales book” look since it’s for salespeople. Some specifics:
- should have a fairly big title, probably in a sans serif
- should have some red somewhere, as that’s the “sales” color
- should somehow present the idea that telling a story will lead to a sale. OR . . . it could simply present an image of a story (don’t have to include the sales idea)
Published books with similar feel: I’m including TWO groups of books: 1. Storytelling Examples — this presents three very different, but all intriguing, ways to show storytelling. (NOTE; the title on Storytelling Animal is NOT big enough for us). 2. Sales-MidLevel3 — this presents what we think of as a strong contemporary sales book. So we need to have elements of storytelling combined with elements of a sales book!
Some information about the book is attached.
NOTE: Please show me your designs as a face-front, flat image. You’re welcome to also include an angled “3D” version if you want, but we want to be able to compare all the designs in a FLAT format. We prefer jpgs that are about 1200 pixels tall. We don’t need to see a spine, and definitely not a back cover.
Thanks, Cathleen Ouderkirk
