Hello designers. We’d like for you to design a 6” x 9” paperback for us. Here’s the information on the book:
Title: Succeeding with Senior Management
Subtitle: Getting the Right Support at the Right Time for Your Project
Author G. Michael Campbell PMP
Audience: This is a book for Project Managers who need to communicate well with executive managers in business. They need to keep the executives informed and ask for their help in getting projects started and finished
Over all “look and feel”: Professional but friendly and helpful. We like simple and strong designs
Possible imagery: TWO DIFFERENT POSSIBLE images:
1.Two to four businesspeople talking together. One of the people is the higher-level manager. You MUST include at least one woman and at least one person with darker skin as we want to show many kinds of businesspeople. They should ideally be in casual American business clothes — this means NOT extremely “corporate” clothes. The high-level manager could be in a suit. Try to crop the photos in an interesting way, so it doesn’t look too “stock artish”
2. Some FRIENDLY, HELPFUL project management “tools” (technical graphics,) Here are the names of some: gantt chart, Burn down chart, activity diagram, beta distribution, critical path, event chain diagrams, project network, work breakdown structure, PERT. I have attached a collection of graphics that we think look “friendly”
3. Possibly you could include the photo of two people talking AND one of the project management tools.
Published books with similar feel: I’m attaching a collection called Project Managment-People
Some information about the book is attached.
NOTE #1: Please show me your designs as a face-front, flat image — a 1200 pixel high jpg. 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 do not want to see a spine or a back cover.
NOTE #2: Please do not send many subtle variations on a given design (I can’t look through all of them). Pick the version that YOU think works best.
