We are looking for the Front Cover and Spine design for the book. The book will be 5.5"w x 8.5"h. Probably in the range of 180 pages, so figure the spine will be about 5/8"w x 8.5"H. We'll want the image in a pdf and layered photoshop formats. We will also want the different components of the cover in 300 dpi jpeg and png files.
We want the cover to have a clean and fun look. It can be colorful or even cartoonish. We have another book that sets the look/feel for our brand. We would like to have some similar elements so the brand carries through. I will attach the PDF of that cover. We do not need to use the Character used on that design.
The cover will need the following:
-Full title "499 Smart Facebook Updates"
-Subtitle: "The Ultimate Guide for Professionals who don't know what to say on Facebook"
-Sub-Subtitle: "Also for those Professionals who don't realize they are driving clients away with their Boring Facebook updates"
-Two author names: Greg Pitstick first, William Brown second
The sub-sub title can be set off in some way (or at least smaller).
The winner will be credited as the cover designer inside the book, we will keep the copyright. We would also look to the winner first for the next book cover in the series which is being written right now (499 Smart Twitter Updates) as well as other in-book illustrations and web graphics that we'll need.
We would appreciate original work and do not want stock photos/graphics.
