What's your vision?
I need a book cover design for my new book "Magic of Impromptu Speaking: Create a Speech that Will be Remembered for Years in Under 30 seconds" Title: Magic of Impromptu Speaking Subtitle: Create a Speech that Will be Remembered for Years in Under 30 seconds Author Name: Andrii Sedniev Website: MagicOfPublicSpeaking.com Topic: The book is about how to speak impromptu in public. How to speak off-the-cuff on stage. Things to avoid: I don't like photos or any realistic images on the cover. I also don't like any covers from the template. Samples of the covers I like: http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Public- This is a cover of my other book. I like very much the hat on it, that looks "cartoonish" and the unusual font. And also that there is not too much on it. http://www.amazon.com/Write-Nonfict I like the fonts. Love the picture and the cartoonish outlook. http://www.amazon.com/4-Hour-Workwe (I love the picture, orange color for the background and also the childish font for the title "4-hour workweek" You can use 3 above covers as inspiration and general direction, though don't plagiarize ideas from them. My ideas for the cover: 1) The title should be readable even from the small thumbnail on Amazon. At least "Impromptu Speaking" part of it. 2) I want a bright eye catching cover and a background. 3) Would prefer a creative font for the title, not a standard typical font from Word. Looking forward for your creative ideas guys! Andrii Hi, guys Unfortunately so far I didn't get the concept that I really liked and would like to develop. So I'd like to slightly alter the directions:1) The only fixed requirement is that the main title is readable on small thumnail.2)Please be creative and try two different directions:a) Don't rely on my previous direction. Please send your ideas for the cover. Be creative. Show your vision of the cover. I'd like to see different concepts.b) One direction I'd like to explore is to have a big text on the cover where a title is a main element of the cover. In this case little elements or pictures may surround text however as the main element of the coverSee what I mean here:http://www.amazon.com/Mars-Women-Venus-Communication-ebook/dp/B000FC12SM Again be as creative as you can in terms of fonts, elements around the letters or the background. To make this option more natural use the extended version of my main title. Instead of "Magic of Impromptu Speaking" - "Magic of Impromptu Public Speaking" Thank you all for your ideas. Once I will see a concept with the potential or good idea I will give directions/ideas how to develop it further. Please try those two directions.ThanksAndrii
For the contest please design just the front cover (the version for the kindle ebook on Amazon). For me the most critical is a concept for the front cover. I will provide to the winner the biography, photo and necessary icon for the back cover design.

Mjesecnica - was always quick to reply to my questions and requests for changes, and I made many, so I was worried if it wold drive the designer mad to do so. But he was great to make adjustments and changes and I really enjoyed his comments and suggestions. Highly Recommended!!!
