1) your dust jacket design (I put a very brief sample description
for the back of the book and Bio inside the flap. Honestly what the
text says doesn't really matter right now, I mostly want to see how
visually appealing your work looks. I'm going to hire a writer to
write those soon, but want to find a designer in the meantime since
that usually takes longer.
2) a sample of a couple spread samples (the book cover is attached.
It's the mint blue picture with the dog and ice cream cones). This is
to get an idea of what your work is like. I will use these samples to
choose a winner, and the winner will earn the job of designing the
rest of the book in a one-on-one project. There will be approximately
40 to 50 spreads total +/- (70-100 pages) and it will need to be
finished within a month's time delivered via PDF. I will attach some
images and quotes to get you started in a word document. I'll also
attach examples of other people's work that I like.
-The Title will be gold foil stamped in production
-the book will be 11 by 8.5 inches (landscape)
-I prefer a "clean" look so there isn't too much competing with the
-For the most part I prefer the image to take the whole page like in
the underwater dog example I attached, then the other side of the
spread containing the quote or poem
COLOR PALETTE: Gold, Mint Blue, Navy Blue, White
Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions.
