Hello - we are writing a book called "Living Globalized" that is about utilizing today's technology and opportunities to travel around the world and make an impact.
For background context, Sarang and I met in an elevator in Sri Lanka and have before and since gained so much from traveling at and working on the international level. Our book starts with meeting in that elevator in Sri Lanka at an IEEE conference and then swings back to talk in two chapters each how we each individually grew on a personal and professional level to meet in that elevator than pivots to ‘after the elevator’ when we do two chapters each about the amazing opportunities we have gotten and lessons we have learned from our global work, travels, and volunteerism. The point? We live in an globalized economy and for the first time have digital tools to connect with anyone around the globe at anytime; our book focuses on the fact that with a little hard work - anyone can leverage the opportunities made possible by our modern tools to actually travel, gain perspective, and make an impact on the global level.
(1) We would like you to help us with generating some images for the book. I have attached an initial concept for the cover of the book. We are looking to build on this by adding a caricature of both Sarang and I - or if you are feeling creative, we would also be open to other completely different cover designs all together.
(2) We would like to make a world map illustration that has a pin for every country that was mentioned in the book
(3) The chapters of the book start with both Sarang and I then go back and fourth between a chapter from me, a chapter from sarang, a chapter from me, etc. At the beginning of each chapter, we would like to recycle the caricature from (1) with a slight alteration to have the caricature doing something relevant to the chapter - and include a simple outline of the countries included in that chapter. For instance, the introduction chapter would have the caricature of both Sarang and I in an elevator and include an outline of Sri Lanka
I am looking for a mix of experience and value
