Accounting & Financial
Our firm specializes in retirement planning and education for retirees and soon to be retirees. Our target audience is age 58 to 75, typically married or widowed. Most families have combined investable assets of $300,000. This book uses a new and revolutionary strategy developed by our founder to help our target market to get more value from their retirement accounts and help to increase the longevity of the income stream produced by the financial assets. The Book is a truly educational book and designed as a self help guide that is easy to understand and apply to individual situations. It is NOT designed to be any type of sales or solicitation piece.
What's your vision?
The book is titled: Real World RETIREMENT(R). We are in need of a book cover that will be produced within this contest to satisfy 3 formats- eBook, a sewn perfect bound version, and a hardback edition of the book itself (Templates attached for Perfect Bound and Hardback Dimensions). The book will be unique as the highest quality paper (80# and 100# for the content inside), top quality printing of cover materials (Glossy), and color printing and images will be used throughout the book. It will need to parallel the professional image of our firm, and convey a rich and impactful cover. The Real World Retirement Strategy represents a entirely new set of ideas and practices to help reduce the possibility that a retiree can run out of money and outlive their income, facing a drastic change to their retirement lifestyle. They find themselves relying on the charity of friends and family to supplement small benefits of government programs like Social Security. In the case of widows or widowers, many face poverty. Real World Retirement treats people like real people, not sales prospects. It help to educate them and get them and keep them involved in their finances! The winning cover design will have to stand out as unique from the current field of retirement books that are so typical in many distribution channels. THE BACK COVER INFORMATION WILL NEED TO BE EASILY READABLE BY PEOPLE IN THE AGE GROUP OF 55-75 (Older EYES!)... The Firms related materials have a GOLD and GREEN Color Scheme, but you have total artistic release in your design and color choices..
We have attached a word document for content of the front and back covers for the book. We have the templates for cover dimensions. We have attached a photo of the author, as well as the png images of "badge images" for his bio as a leading Financial Advisor as ween in Forbes magazine. You can either use the 2014 badge only, or possible the 2012,2013 as smaller images to support a larger 2014 badge. We have also attached the Real World Retirement Logo with byline. Both are registered trademarks... (I do not know if you wish to use the logo or not- it is NOT required- it is your choice as to suitability within your design!)
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at NOK 2,599.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Bruce K collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Gordan designed my book cover. His design was in a group of about 50 submissions. It stood out among the rest of them and also mirrored my design brief. Working with Gordan is a pleasure on every level. He is a real pro. I can't recommend him highly enough. He deserves a perfect 10 score from me.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
