What's your vision?
I have written a book about working as a contractor called "101 Contracting Tips". It is generic advice for any contractors, but all examples are in the IT industry. I need: - full colour front and back book covers (including book spine) - a lesser black and white version of the front cover for the inside cover (I.e. the first page when you open the main cover) - images to be scalable to fit various book sizes/ratios as I haven't yet finalised the exact book size. The leading choice at this point is 8inch high x 5inch wide. - a logo for "101 Tips" as this may be used to create a series of books. - the book will be offered in print and on kindle/PDF For a bit more on "contracting" if you need ideas/inspiration: - self-employed, one-man band operations hired on a contract - usually office workers - temporary workers, for a few months or years then off to their next workplace - opportunity to take a lot of time off in between jobs, a lot of job freedom - opportunity to make a lot more money doing the same job, a lot more financial control and freedom Go forth and use your imagination! I look forward to seeing the submissions! Front Cover: - my name as the author "Steven Baker" - title: 101 Contracting Tips - sub-title: Valuable Tips for New and Experienced Contractors Spine: - approximately 5mm thick Back Cover: - text (10 points to be placeholders for the moment): " 101 Contractor Tips compiles practical and effective advice with real-life examples on how to begin and succeed in your career that will prove valuable to experienced contractors, newbies and wannabes alike. Tips are set out in ten major categories: - Starting Out - Networking - Finding a Role - Getting Hired - Before You Start - On The Job - Finishing Up - Finance Matters - Administration - Lifestyle Whatever your level of experience, you're sure to find something beneficial between these covers. There are thousands of people who are enjoying the huge benefits of being a self-employed contractor. Why not join them? "
Please don't include anything related to my business name "Centillion Technology Services" or make the cover specific to banking/finance. Don't use any kind of "sitting on the beach relaxing" kind of concepts. Please do not use any stock images or anything else that I will be charged for beyond what I have paid to 99designs already.
