About the book:
The book will explore practical ways to utilize the sharing economy / collaborative consumption to share time, space, resources and skills through services like airbnb, getaround, kickstarter, taskrabbit, couchsurfing and many more. The book is fun how-to guide that will show people how to live an enriched life while saving money and making new friends
What we want:
We’re writing a book titled, “It’s a Shareable Life” which plays off of the title “It’s a Wonderful Life.” We’d like the book cover is to take the "old" concepts of "sharing" and bring them into the modern world of technology.
We’d like to make it clear that we’re giving you 100% creative license to come up with your own concepts and ideas to make this book compelling.
These are a few ideas we come up with so far for you to riff off of if you’d like:
IDEA/CONCEPT #1: Using a font like the one from "Its a Wonderful Life" mixing it with modern/tech font to illustrate this marriage of concepts.
black & white, text, cartoon, imagery such as "borrowing sugar from a neighbor"
but incorporating a "cell phone" or laptop juxtaposed in this visual
IDEA/CONCEPT #2: Our chapter titles (see below) in a technical/modern font with a more old world, thick font in capital letters overlaid on top of it. (See attachment for ideas to riff of of)
color, tech and old world fonts, message driven through fonts and words rather than illustration
