DESCRIPTION: This project is for the 300 dpi cover design of a book that I'm going to publish through CreateSpace. The book’s focus is on how to create a resume that will open doors, wow hiring managers and get interviews – and it is specifically targeted at Human Resources managers and professionals. FORMAT: It has to be formatted for an Amazon Create Space paperback cover PDF in 6 x 9 format – with front cover, spine and back cover. --The book title is: HR Resume Secrets. --The subtitle is: How To Create An Irresistible Human Resources Resume That Will Open Doors, Wow Hiring Managers & Get You Interviews! --The author is: Alan Collins FOR THE FRONT COVER: --Lettering: I want the title, subtitle, and author’s name on the front cover. However, the book TITLE and AUTHOR’S NAME should be in BIG LETTERS on the front cover…bold, visible and impressive looking when viewed as a thumbnail on Amazon. The subtitle obviously can be much smaller, but should be on the cover as well. --Cover image or mood: Even though the book is non-fiction and for a business audience I want the book cover to be dark or black –with a cover image that conveys that the book is about secrets, hidden secrets or unlocking secrets or something that conveys mystery along these lines. It should appeal to both business women and men. The lettering should be white/light since the cover is dark. Since this book is on a serious/important business topic, please stay away from wacko or cartoonish images and drawings. Even though this cover will contain mostly words, please find a way to get creative with this. I don’t need anything over-the-top, just something that catches the eye and inviting. However, please be creative and use your artistic expression. An example of what I like is at http://www.BestKeptHRSecrets.com….this cover is very much like what I'd like for this book – though it shouldn’t be this exact image. THE SPINE: I would like the book title and my name on the spine. The book is 194 pages. Therefore, the spine thickness should be 0.485 inches (194 pages x 0025/ cream page) according to Create Space guidelines at https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/CoverPDF.jsp. BACK COVER: On the back cover, I want the text and picture as laid out exactly in the file attached. (see the attached files). Please leave an area 2.5" wide and 1.7" tall in the bottom right corner of the back cover clear of text and any meaningful images. That space will be used for the ISBN and barcode. (Let me know if any of this is a problem from a space perspective). IMPORTANT: Since this book will change over time, I need three files: (1) A PDF with the cover, spine, and back cover as one document (for the hardcopy book), (2) a JPG of the front cover (for ads that I’ll be running) and (3) A PSD file (just in case future adjustments need to be made).
Use the attached text and photo for the back cover as indicated above.
