Working with EdnaBrent was a complete pleasure, extremely professional and talented. Always quick to respond with new creative ideas and changes.....the best!
T.J. Rogers's use of retro science fiction in this cover was a bit hit, with lots of colour co-ordination along a green-blue theme. The alien positioned in front of the time tunnel machine was designed to look weird, eye-catching, and irresistible. The cool, sleek title jived in well with a futuristic, modern theme for this book.
Incredible designer, a pleasure to work with.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are an online language school providing live 1:1 lessons through Skype / virtual classrooms. Our customers are especially people who would like to move to another country or have a strong relationship to another country and therefore would like to learn the language in an effective way. We have a special focus on Scandinavian languages.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This is a textbook for the Norwegian language (beginners’ course).
As for what is special about this book in contrast to other books, please read the texts to include on the book cover (file "cover.pdf").
The cover should stand out by transporting an emotion of longing for Norway / curiosity for the Norwegian language. It could use a photograph, and we are enclosing a few examples. However, feel free to use your own ideas / creativity. Remember that most language textbooks have a pretty boring cover; we would love ours to stand out in a positive way. We have nothing against unconventional ideas.
Although the story starts very easy and from a child’s perspective, this is not a children’s book. Therefore the cover should not look „childish“.
The formate for the book cover is 216 mm x 216 mm. Our company uses a colour combination of grey / red; however, this does not mean these colours have to dominate the cover.
Please have a look at the file "cover.pdf" which contains all the texts that have to be on the cover. Of course you can find your own way of placing the texts.
