Business & Consulting
It is a book for doctors, lawyers and other busy people who want to create a side business online selling information.
What's your vision?
A stand out book cover for a 6x9 book, front, back and spine. I have an initial thought about the design but I am totally open to creative suggestions, that is reason I am using 99Designs. The title is "Sell That Thought!" And the sub-title is "Online Information Riches for Doctors, Lawyers and Other Busy People". Author name "Dr. Troy Counselman". Here is my simple idea, run with this or come up with your own completely original idea: A common term that my title replaces is "Hold That Thought" With that one could make the word "Hold" smaller and relatively opaque, the "That" gets a little bigger and "Thought" is bigger yet - each word on its own line. Let's say all that is black and "Hold" is light, like greyscale. Then over the top of "Hold" would be in bright blood red and a really snazzy typestyle "Sell" with a swoosh underneath it further obliterating the word "Hold". Essentially displaying the idea of Why hold onto a thought, why not sell it instead? Then it the background of the whole cover, front and back, would have a handful very common infographics (social media icons, graphs and other internet related images), each in a circle and each a different color, but very very light, maybe 50% or more opaque just to give it some background and color. Lines would connect each infographic all to a larger graphic, being the money site, or something like that. Later I would add quotes and a small picture of me on the back cover.

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.
