Contest Brief

Brief Description:
This book is filled with the top 101 questions that my customers have asked me over the years. In addition to these questions, I have done my best to answer these questions within this book. This book is approximately 320 pages long and it covers topics such as Social Media, Online Traffic, SEO, Video Marketing, Blog Marketing, Press Release Marketing, Twitter Marketing, Facebook Marketing and LinkedIn Marketing.

I know that they tell us not to judge a book by it's cover - and yet, people judge a book by it's cover all the time - that's why I'm looking for a professional book cover design that will convey professionalism and a high quality product. In addition, I'm looking for a design style that can be repeated for when the sequel comes out and so forth. In other words, I want this design to be designed in such a way where certain elements can be updated or replaced and then the same style can be used over and over again as many times as I need to. This is a very important part of the criteria - so please keep this in mind.

Book Cover Requirements:
1. You must use the attached logo graphic somewhere (or multiple places) within the book cover - preferably on a blue background.
2. The book must use the following three colors as it's primary colors: White, Orange - RGB(255,151.0), and Light Blue - RGB (74,166,214)
3. The must make use of curved lines instead of straight lines where possible.
4. The book must use the following main title: Social Media + Traffic = Success
5. The book must use the following sub title: Essential Social Marketing Tactics and Strategies That Will Generate Buzz and Increase Your Business Revenue
6. Above the main title you must put the following line, "askGabe about:" where askGabe is the askGabe logo.
7. The author's name is "Gabriel Michael" - this must appear somewhere on this book cover.
8. The book cover must make the use of some kind of graphics and/or icon images that will make it look very professional.
9. The book cover format & layout must be repeatable so that this design can also be used for the entire book series. In other words, I should be able to change the titles and the graphics image and then it's an entirely new book cover.

Once again - the book cover design must look professional and of high quality - so, please keep this mind at all times. In addition, I will give you additional information about what I'm looking for as soon as some book cover designs come in. Thank you for reading my contest post and good luck...

    Hi Everybody,
    I would like everybody to know that I deliberately choose NOT to seal this contest for very specific reasons. I did want a more team approach in coming up with book cover designs that really work for me. In other words, I do want some level copying and/or collaboration to go around, as long as the designs keep getting better and better.
    However, please be aware that I'm also very much aware of: who the original designer of certain designs is. And, who copied various designs and then who came up with the most original new designs based on another design and so forth.
    I promise that I will do my best to consider all factors when I will award the winning design. In addition, because there are some very talented designers here, I may have ongoing work for you even after this contest. If this is you, then I will personally contact you after this contest with the offer of more work for you.
    Thanks

    Hi Everybody,

    I'm making available the following askGabe character: http://www.yoursuperteam.com/askgabe.jpg

    Please use this character as you see fit. In addition, please make sure that you follow the following two rules:

    1. The Title needs to be as big and large as possible. People should be able to read the main title from a distance.

    2. The Author's name should be as large as possible also.

    These two rules are very important when it comes to cover designs. Readability is critical...

    Thanks

    Hi Everybody,

    Here's a Hint - I'm looking for something similar to what the following website has for their software packages: http://ecommerce.aheadworks.com/

    Now, these product box covers are excellent and if these designs were still available then I would have used these designs for this book series. However, since these designs are taken, I'm now looking for the next best thing. And this is where you come in. Please work on designs that are similar but definitely not exactly like these designs. I don't want to violate any copyrighht laws, so please make sure that your design is at least 20% to 30% different. Good Luck...

      Hello, I have a question about format of your book. Would you mind if the format would be square or you need it rectangular?

    The whole context ssytem is fake . First the start context to get your ideas and than in the pulish and make win one of their own idea . this way the money stay in their pocket wile they steal your creative ideas . ever wonder why you never win a context . and why they choose a design that akward !

      yeah i also thought of that but not all people are the same, most people use freelancers for their business and they dont need to hire at all.And.. many results to choose with high qualities so if they use freelancer to trick people and they earn money for it, Karma works really fast and it hits so hard straight in their ass!
