I'm looking for someone to design a book cover that will initially be self-published as an ebook and later as a print paperback. I've attached a document with a layout of what I am looking for.
The front cover will need the title, author, and an illustration of a brain with a highlighted synapse. If the scan is hard to view, here's another book cover with a slightly oblique view of a brain. (Some people reported issues with the link, so you can also see the attached file "Brain example.jpg")
The top should read NanoPlague, then have the brain/nerve cells illustration below. At the bottom, it should read A NOVEL BY and then underneath RICHARD HOUGHTON.
For colors, I'm partial to the book at the link below. (Also see the attached file "Color examples.jpg") The title NanoPlague at the top should be in a similar red. The nerve cells and synapse should have the same metallic silver/gray sheen as the key on the book. The text A NOVEL BY and RICHARD HOUGHTON should also be in a similar metallic gray.
The back cover should have a description of the book, plus an ISBN barcode. I don't have the barcode yet, so please just insert a sample one for now.
Since the book will be sold primarily online, the cover will need to reduce to a thumbnail fairly well and still be readable.
If you have any questions regarding the project, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
