I need a book cover concept for a 400 page book on healing, bio energy and self discovery. I have a general idea on the visual, but will need an artist to put the pieces together.
The physical file requirements: 1200 by 1800 at 300dpi (produce with the option to print).
All stock image usage must include permission/license with referral to original place of acquisition.
Credit will be provided in the book to the artist. This is the authors second book. I am trying to take him in a new visual direction to improve his sales.
This is basically a spec job for me, so the price is low, but the potential for growth there.
The design I envision will include a combination of
1. title text (see attached hand drawn sample cover poorly photographed)
It reads "The Mind is the Healer, The Mind is the Killer Discovering Harmony of mind, body and spirit.
2. a blue diamond
3. And a classical depiction of a person within the diamond, being protected by the diamond.
Concept 1: To show the healing protection of a blue diamond, when a person stands within it's walls. The image links are to provide a general idea and are not to be used for the actual design. I included them to show visual ideas on the basic materials or shapes needed.
Concept 2: Use either of these graphics to create a cover. This is original © art that can be used for this cover only.
I have four books to publish this year, so consider this a paid test-run for future work. If you can do a quick machup of the ideas presented or something you see as a valid consideration, it will be thoroughly reviewed and considered.
Skills: graphics, ebooks, design
