Not For Teachers!
Tamara Michael is an experienced teacher, artist and professional daydreamer. She has worked in schools for over 10 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience working with class clowns and mischief makers. Before beginning her career as an author, Michael worked as a primary school teacher and artist, displaying her work in galleries across Sydney Australia. She has channelled her love of art into fun (and cheeky) activity books for students and adults to explore their own creative superpowers.
Not for Teachers is a book secretly for teachers! Designed to be destroyed, this book is a valuable tool to get creative juices flowing and help students think outside the box. A book designed for students who hate books, each page is full of prompts and illustrations that will get them poking, scribbling, cutting and throwing this book to pieces. An engaging resource to have in every classroom that can be used as a brain break, creative play activity book or simply to hide in your classroom for students to find and devour! This book blurs the lines between reading, art and journaling and helps students discover the many avenues of creative expression.
Children (ages 8-13)
Book cover type
I'd like this book cover to look almost exactly like a school exercise book (I've attached an image of the type of book I'm talking about). I'd prefer the black coloured exercise book but I'm open to see your interpretations. Wrapped around the front and back of the book I want to see yellow caution tape (image attached) all over the book. On the front I'd like the title on one or two strips of the tape that say "Not For Teachers!" This font needs to look like a child's handwriting (image attached). On the back page I want the blurb "hide this from your teacher" written across two or three yellow strips. I also don't mind if the words "caution" or 'warning are somewhere along the yellow tape The book cover is 6x9inch with a 0.35inch spine
What to avoid
Please don't include any of the author bio or book description on the back cover. I only want the words "hide this book"
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.
Tamaramichaelbooks collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Amazing to work with I would highly recommend her! She followed my brief exactly, was very attentive to detail and had some great suggestions. She brought my vision to life! I am very happy with the final result
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
