We require a highly experienced and very talented graphic designer to do the book layout including recreating the complex charts and graphics in this book. The title of this book is "The Mess We're In" and the subtitle is "Understanding The Refugee Dilemma".
The printed book dimensions are to be:
Please create the book layout in the Createspace size (which I believe is 6.14 inches x 9.21 inches). There is approximately 113,700 words.
You need to be a master in InDesign and image software to create the graphics, charts and other images. I have uploaded 20 of the images which need either sharpening up or recreating to give you an idea of what is required with some of the images. There will be approximately 110 images in the book.
This book is a resource for those wishing to inform themselves about the refugee mess we’re in (a term I will use as a short hand for the plight of forcibly displaced people and of those countries trying to help them). The intent is to provide a balanced view of the refugee situation and a full overview of the main options available. This is done through a management consulting approach which is specifically designed to provide such comprehensive overviews. While there is a focus on Australia, the review is global as the mess is global and Australia’s approach must align with this global context. Such alignment is important because anything else leaves the global resolution up to others, unacceptable for an active and wealthy member of the international community. The large and growing population of people living as refugees, asylum seekers or internally displaced people is both a tragedy for the individuals and a growing threat to world stability. It simply cannot be ignored.
Please note that you will be expected to create the book files in the following formats: Amazon Createspace and for a local printer and an epub version.
Most of the images need to be made in portrait with proportions to 6 by 9 inches.
or 12 x 18. Some of the diagrams you could turn sideways at a 90 degree angle.
The author is happy to work with you on email or Skype to ensure that all the diagrams are done 100 per cent perfectly.
