Check out clementsrj's Book cover contest…
I am an author. I am publishing my second book (an e-book) and I need a cover designed for the book. The book is about "career reinvention" and is targeted to people who change their careers mid-life. The title of the book is: Embark: Navigating The Perilous Path Of Career Reinvention
What's your vision?
I want the design cover to highlight the concepts that my book will convey in a simple, clean, minimalistic fashion: Here, in essence, is what my book covers: 1. The process of career reinvention is a journey that takes courage, commitment and perseverance. It isn't easy, and it doesn't happen quickly. 2. Along the way you might have to correct some disempowering inner "stories", belief systems, and excuses that you tell yourself 3. You will meet with resistance (both internal and external) along the way (hence the "perilous" description in the subtitle) 4. Your ability to succeed will largely depend on your ability to develop empowering believes and habits Here is the "table of contents" from the book (this may help in the giving more context for the design process). This shows all the chapters and the sub-chapters.

I like simple designs that center around compelling images. I want the book cover to evoke emotion when people see it - I want them to "want to read it" because of the image. I want the cover to really tell the story of the title and the cover page. Title: Embark: Navigating The Perilous Path Of Career Reinvention
