Contest Brief

I would like a book cover design for a business book called Let's Be Real: Peaceful Resolutions to Chaotic Conversations

This will be Book 1 of 7


Cover Title: Let's Be Real

Subheading: Peaceful Resolutions to Chaotic Conversations

Author: Lisa Drennon

FINISHED Size: 5x8" (203mm x 127mm)

Spine: Approx 8mm

Design elements:

I’d like the design to include the following…

front cover,
back cover and
spine


The Subject of this book is building healthy relationships. It will be a 1 of a 7 book series that will focus on effective communication and building healthy relationships.
Book 1 is about resolving conflict peacefully.
Three things the reader will learn: communicate effectively, resolve conflict peacefully, respond to angry conversations with positivity.

I’d like the book design to look like a "New York Times" bestseller style book. Sophisticated and simple.
It must look like a book you would see at the airport book shop.
The design must get the attention of women whose biggest problem is feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. They do not have enough time in their day nor motivation to accomplish tasks as a result they are easily angered, argumentive, and struggle to maintain healthy relationships. If they could resolve this problem in 90 days they would see an increase in energy levels, consistency, and clarity.

The main colors I'd like to use are in my brand logo (attached). I like the colors that are reflective of the ocean and beaches. I love the mountains, leaves, peaceful reflections, bridges, paths, boardwalks, and waterfalls.

I've also included a number of book cover designs for inspiration to give you an idea of the direction I'd like for this design.

      I really like this concept-not sure if it's my focus. It definitely captures the topic

      I love the idea of this. When I look at it I feel very peaceful. I am not sure if my audience would be drawn to it.

      I like your designs but not for a business book. The colors are beautiful. If this was a mystery -love genre it would be perfect. Thank you for your hard work.
