We are looking for a cover design that demonstrates connectedness, connectivity, and a complex network, all rooted in a sense of place. We'd like it to be a bit stylized/impressionistic, and look forward to seeing your creative ideas for presenting the ideas of connectedness, connectivity, and a complex network, all rooted in a sense of place!
The title of the story is:
(Main Title): If You Want to Go Far, Go Together
(Subtitle): A Profile of Venture Philanthropy Partners
This cover and profile story are the seventh in an ongoing series. You can see the first six here: https://leapambassadors.org/product…e-funders/
We need the branding on the cover to match the first four stories. That means that the Funding Performance box in the top left corner and the Leap of Reason Ambassadors Community banner and logo at the bottom must be present on all of your submitted cover designs. They are included in the assets package for this contest.
The organization featured in this profile is Prince George’s County, Maryland, so we’d like a simplified map of the region to be featured in the background of the cover. Some links to maps of the area are below, but PLEASE use whatever style/type of map of the region fits YOUR design:

We’d like a simplified/stylized network map to also be part of your design. Because this is a story about people, we’d like the ‘nodes’ of the network to be representative of individual people, teams, organizations, schools, businesses, government, etc. rather than simple, geometric shapes. We really want to highlight the 'human' nature of the network. We’d prefer polished, interesting icons rather than simple stock icons.
We’ve attached a sample of what the network COULD look like, but also want you to see what you can come up with -- you're the designer! We really want to see artistic renderings of what a connected network looks like!
8 school nodes (gray on attached chart)
10 nonprofit organization nodes (orange on attached chart)
4 government nodes (dark blue on attached chart)
