I am a psychologist specializing in motivation and goal setting. I work in schools carrying out various tasks including the writing of this book for which I need a cover. Once the cover and contents have been approved I will be seeking a complete design layout for the book
School students aged 12 - 15, 70% boys and 30% girls. The book will be for young people to read and use. However, bear in mind that it will be teachers and parents who make the decision to purchase the books.
I need a cover for the book so that it can be promoted in forthcoming conferences and workshops. Once the book is finished I will approach the same designer for a full book layout.
The book cover will need to show the title of the book: 'SMART Skills for Learning'
It will also need to show the author: Helen Street PhD
And the publisher: A Wise Solutions publication
I need the cover to be in full color. To be modern and edgy with wide ranging appeal. I like strong colors and sharp lines with a leaning towards a masculine appeal. The book will initially be sold in Australian schools and colleges. It will be spiral bound, A5 size.
The book will describe five skills using the acronym SMART that will help student to develop motivation and focus towards their goals, avoid procrastination and achieve successful educational outcomes. S = specific, M = motion, A = approach, R = resiliency, T = take action now.
I would prefer the final design in Adobe Illustrator Document (extension ai). A 2mm bleed is required around the document.
