UPDATE: Its about the times where the cavemen lived so please use a more "imperfect", bold & rustic design (i.e. the font see https://paleoleap.com/assets/img/pa…-logo.svg)
WHATS THE BOOK ABOUT: Paleo for Beginners - everything they need to know about the paleo diet (what it is, which foods to eat, 55 recipes, …). The book will also include a 30 day challenge which helps the readers to get started.
TITLE: Paleo für Einsteiger ["für Einsteiger" means for Beginners - please make that way smaller than "Paleo" and less popping)
SUBTITLE: No Subtitle
AUTHOR: Martin Struck
LAYOUT: 2224 x 2743
CONSISTENCY: This book will be part of a series of books in the Paleo. This means we are after a layout where the main elements can be used as a rough template for all following book cover). It is important to see that the covers have something in common and belong together.
As a guideline: the final cover design will be very similar to: https://www.amazon.de/Sarah-Kaiser/e/B01INNRU62
So we will have a recurring symbol in the cover which is surrounded by food (which is adapted to the topic of the book i.e. the dinner book will have different ingredients on it than the desserts book)
As the main symbol we could use a "mace" (hope that’s the right word) as you can see in the image attached.
Theres two cover "drafts" attached which go very close in the direction where I wanna go (one with the mace and the other one where the ingredients surround the title but leave a space open so that’s its more unique compared to other covers which have the ingredients 360°) - the colors on the sample stand for ingredients.
We plan to continue working with the winner of the contest for all consecutive covers of this niche and theres a possibility to become one of our main cover designers - then also for other books / niches.
