What's your vision?
I need the front and back covers designed for a paperback book that I'm self-publishing through CreateSpace (which is owned by Amazon). The front cover needs to be eye-catching, so potential buyers will pick it up, professional looking given the audience I'm targeting (Chief Executive Officers), and not too busy. Simple graphics are preferred over those that are complex. This is the second book I've written. You can see my first book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Wallet-Share-2nd-Practice-Without/dp/1495926141/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1459604011&sr=8-1&keywords=wallet+share. I'm very happy with the first book's cover design.
Last Minute Idea: I know this is coming late in the game, but I wanted to share a thought with you on concept. Very simply, it was the image of moving from cEGO To CEgO. The small “C” might be in the distance, in a lighter color, maybe at Time = 0, and the small “G” might also be in the distance in a lighter color at Time = 18 months. The idea being to make EGO and CEO stand out. The title of the book is "Being A Leader With Courage: How To Succeed In Your C-level Position In 18 Months Or Less." The final format will be 6" X 9" (15.24 x 22.86cm). CreateSpace provides the specs at https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/CoverPDF.jsp. The covers will be glossy. The ISBIN assigned by CreateSpace is: ISBN-13: 978-1522846925. The cover price will be $29.95. The book is will be supported by the launch of an assessment that you can learn more about at http://www.LeadersWithCourage.com. I've attached the logo that can incorporated into the design. It's not necessary to use the Value Drivers on the covers. I've also attached my headshot. These colors should be used in the design: Blue -- #006699, Khahki -- #666600.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
lee de collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
