zella got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design a book cover for "Who is in your Personal Boardroom?"
Check out zella's Book cover contest…
Business & Consulting
We help executives and business leaders design and build the Personal Boardroom they need to succeed as leaders. A Personal Boardroom is a group of 6-12 people, drawn from across your network - both distant and close - who help you be the leader you want to be. Our company has a diagnostic tool that helps you identify how your Personal Boardroom could be better. We sell coaching and leadership development to large companies. Although we do not sell our services directly to consumers, this book will be available for anyone to buy. More details on our website www.personalboardroom.com
What's your vision?
Cover for a paperback book for executives and business leaders. You have complete creative freedom. Please bear in mind this is for a business readership. We’ve experimented with our own ideas for design themes, and might offer this guidance later in the contest, but to start with we’d love fresh ideas we haven’t thought of. The book will be printed on white paper using Amazon's CreateSpace and will also be sold on Kindle. The cover needs to work in both formats, and its thumbprint on Amazon needs to be striking and very visual. It needs to include the title, authors’ names, company logo (on back cover and spine), publisher name and address in small letters, a description and several quotes. We provide all the text (which has been finalised as far as possible) in the file attached. The dimensions for the book are: Trim size 5.5" x 8.5" (13.97 x 21.59 cm) Number of pages: 215 To calculate the spine size, Amazon’s guidelines are to multiple the number of pages by 0.002252 so the spine size of this book = 0.48418” (1.230 cm) Please read CreateSpace’s guidelines for creating a book cover at https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/CoverPDF.jsp
Within the book, we talk about the 12 roles you need in your Personal Boardroom. We illustrate each role with an icon. The idea is that the 6-12 people you choose for your Personal Boardroom will between them fill all 12 roles (people can have more than one role, and each role can be filled by more than one person). There is no obligation to include the role icons on the cover, but we mention this in case it inspires you in some way. We attach the role icons here. Please note that there are 12 role icons. They are included in a photoshop file, but each in a separate layer. When you open the file, only one layer will be visible. I'm also attaching a pdf so you can see the icons and role it is associated with. ISBN details (According to this web page https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/ISBNs.jsp Createspace will print this automatically on the cover, so please allow for this) ISBN-13: 978-1502436528 ISBN-10: 1502436523
