Book cover, interior template, & chart design | Business / innovation
The book to be designed is on methods of innovation.
It shares best practices on key methods from the pros and me! :)
Buyers would be similar to Rosenfeld Media / A List Apart customers.
Need a simple but crisp cover, chart, and template design.
Have laid out all the charts very simply in Keynote and would be fine using those as a foundation to be stylized.
They can be easily copied and pasted into Illustrator with vectors intact if that is preferred.
1) 1 ebook - epub ready for Amazon | Length is: ~150 pages in 8.5x11 format or ~300 pages in 6x9 | single spaced
2) Interior Art: ~50-100 line charts, depends on final approach to the design. Many are simply tables.
3) Cover design
4) Goal is to be done by mid-August.
About me / Expectations
Writing is exhausting and it is hard to get outside of the project to do the design too, so really looking for a smart someone to help me get over that last hump!
This is a passion project and am trying to make it pro but need to keep the budget in check, but I believe I am reasonable and am respectful of your skill and time.
Am a graphic designer by training and practice, have designed and produced books so I understand the challenges and issues you face in this work.
Am easy going and am open to suggestions, just need really good communication and good work to be happy.
Currently thinking to lay the book out simply in Apple Pages, in a single column, so I can make adjustments without flow issues related to InDesign and reduce the back and forth.
Again, open to suggestions.
If I prioritized my design needs it would be:
4) Interior formatting (I can handle this if needed.)
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
