Entertainment & The Arts
Small publisher of self help books. Just starting up.
What's your vision?
A cover for a short book to be published using the Amazon tool - CreateSpace. The book is named 'The 7 Life Weapons' Subtitle - 'The Real Secrets of Success, Happiness and Fulfilment. It has 7 chapters outlining tools for life: Curiosity, Confidence, Optimism, Enthusiasm, Discipline, Altruism and Ambition. The book is meant to be inspiring, life affirming and motivating. Design-wise, it should feel bright and attractive, and also timeless. I'm looking for new ideas, clever imaginative approaches to this familiar subject - but also so that it's clear what the book is about.
I need a cover that works with Creatspace specifications.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $399.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
albert.read collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
