I happily used 99 designs several years ago when designing our corporate logo. Now I am hoping that the same brilliance that went into that competition still shines with this project.
I will need front, back and spine designs.
The $499 Silver Package is for the first book only ~ I am not asking designers to design all 15 books for $499 ~ but this first book will become sort of a "template" for the others to follow - they will change somewhat, but all 15 must make a cohesive unit on the shelf, so please check out what the other covers and titles look like on our website or by looking up my name on Amazon.
Please note that even though our books are FOR children, they are not "little kiddie" books - each book is written to bring children to a higher level of thought and in a child friendly way, encourages positive social interactions and belief in oneself. Our books have been described as a mixture of Aesop's Fables and Dr. Seuss - THOUGHTFUL, but in a PLAYFUL manner .....
We have 15 children's books currently on the market. It is not a direct series where one book follows another, but still they need to be visually identifiable as being part of a cohesive group ~ together, yet different.
We currently have used template designs (boring!) from Createspace, but as we place our books in bookstores, we need truly professional graphic work.
Perhaps the best way to view our entire book collection is to visit our website and get a quick overview.
I do not want to offer any suggestions as to where this design should go - yes, I have ideas, but I would like to wipe the slate clean and see what brilliant minds can come up with.
I will be including several images of our latest book, Vivache. It was illustrated by 7-year old Kailee (her 7th book) and is at the final stages of animation and will soon also become a CD.
Please take a moment to look at our website - it will be exceedingly helpful - thank you !!!
