We would like a 5.5 x 8.5 inch book cover designed with the title: “A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump”. The book will be comprised of chapters written by approximately 12 different authors, many of whom have been best-selling authors. Because some authors are very recognizable names, we may favor designs that incorporate a list of the approximately 12 names on the front cover without interfering with the elements of graphic design.
We would prefer not to have a direct image of Donald Trump on the cover. We prefer to also not have a cartoon or caricatured depiction of Donald Trump either, although we will not rule out designs strictly on this criteria if other elements are compelling and effective. Designers are encouraged to strive toward compelling images, but also ones that are neither inflammatory nor defaming
The cover should bring attention to the dangers of narcissism, both the dangers of arrogance, entitlement and bullying behavior, perhaps within a political sphere, but also in the home or other areas of life. Ideal designs may incorporate a political influence that preserves the broader scope of this book. We want a cover that “pulls people into it”, even when viewed as a postage stamp sized image online.
We want it to be compelling, but not insulting; Powerful, yet still tasteful. This book is already receiving considerable advance attention so the designer we select may also receive attention for their design.
