We need help designing an incredibly powerful book cover that is so visually interesting and intriguing that if you saw it as you were walking past a bookstore in a shopping mall, you would have to stop to check it out and see what it is all about. And when you combine that image with the book title “Life’s Top 10” and the tagline “A Roadmap for Navigating the 10 Most Important Topics in Life”, it must strike you as intriguing. There will always be significant challenges throughout life- the visual should include powerful and captivating imagery that conveys significant challenge or difficulty, as well as some comforting aspect that there is a way to navigate through the adversity. The visual must help you understand that it represents what we all face in life…e.g. there is no instruction manual for life, nor any roadmap to help you navigate through life…yet, there are many challenges occurring continually, many of which deal with topics which we are not well-prepared to handle successfully (i.e. we have had little to no education or experience on many of these topics). This is why Life’s Top 10 is so valuable…it not only helps you identify and focus on the topics that are truly important in life, but it also provides you with critical information, expert insights, and best-practices to approaching these topics that you can easily incorporate to have an immediate and positive impact on your life.
One image that I really like so far is the one that is attached for reference (labeled “BOOK COVER CONCEPT” …the image is ”Trolltunga Norway” and if you do a Google image search of it there are many sizes and sources for it- if you use this image please try and find one that is royalty free if possible). I also attached some others that I thought might be inspiring.
We are developing multiple programs for Life’s Top 10 and we will need additional design work all along the way (icons, webpages, workbooks, etc)- we want to find a winning design from a designer that we can work with on a direct, 1 to 1 basis and pay for the additional work as it is needed.
