Contest Brief

Hello, Designers!

I've written a book called "The Bug in Our Brian". It is a self-help, non-fiction book based on lifting our personal self-worth. We view the brain much like a computer, and like a computer, the programming will have bugs. We believe that self-worth is much like a computer bug - we need to raise self-worth and patch our brain's programming. Please consider these thoughts when submitting your design.

Things to consider:
1. Trim Size: 6" x 9"
2. Must have front cover, spine, and back cover
3. Back cover auto photo is included and must be in the design - front or back - be creative.
4. Tagline for front cover is: "The Most Important Patch To Your Thinking You'll Ever Make."
5. Back Cover - Include the following text on back cover.
"Everyone is capable of great success yet most of us never attain our goals. We know something is calling us to do more but lack the power to change our behaviors - we are at war with our higher self.

The Bug in Our Brain is an error in our thinking. We know that success is only the start. Building a meaningful life is much more fulfilling and gives us purpose, and successes are the stepping stones along the way. We believe in one critical tenet of success – you have to feel you are worthy of receiving it. Without the basis of worthiness, success comes and goes. Without a platform of high self-worth, we cycle through success and failure, over and over.

The Bug in Our Brain gets to the heart of our problem – the lifting of personal self-worth. When you believe you are worthy of success, confidence and motivation naturally appear. You see opportunities that were previously invisible. Confidence flows and motivation springs forth from which there was none.

Self-worth is the key to all advancement. High self-worth opens your eyes and enables you to accept the wealth the world has to offer.

Robert Christiansen offers the first personal development program uniquely focused on the core driver of success - worthiness. The Bug in Our Brain needs to be patched and the patch is higher self-worth."
6. This is a soft cover book.
7. Author name is Robert B. Christiansen

Be creative!

ADDITION: I uploaded two new files. An EPS file for the Brain LightBulb and the hand stretch of how I would like it to appear. Please see notes in the contest.

- Lightbulb is a brain and idea
- Lines around the bulb are legs of a bug
- Hang the light bulb from the ceiling of the book (top)

The concept is the lightbulb and idea, but the bulb also looks like a bug.


Thank you!

Robert Christiansen

    Hello, Designers - I uploaded an eps file graphic for the concept. I want to see this lightbulb brain look like a bug. Make small changes to the lines so they look like legs. Hang the light bulb from a power cord as if it is dropping from the top of the book. The concept is this:

    - Bulb hangs from ceiling
    - Bulb is a brain and idea
    - Lines around the bulb which usually signify an idea are actually legs of a bug

    I added a hand drawning for what I want.
