Technical Analysis For Beginners: Take $1k to $10k in 12 Weeks Using Charting and Stock Trends of the Financial Markets with Zero Trading Experience Required
A.Z Penn is born and raised in Birmingham, England. He's Masters graduate from the University of Birmingham with years of experience with technical analysis of the financial markets.
This book will take you from complete beginner to knowledge of the most advanced charting techniques. Only experience of using them, though, will make you a true master of trading, so I've included plenty of real world examples for you to practise on. As you start applying the principles to the market in real time, you'll see how they work and you'll gain in confidence.
The target audience are would mainly be American males, aged around 30-50 years old. They're purchasing this book because they want to learn a new source of income by learning the technicals of trading. Some of them are probably unhappy with their career, so they'll look forward to learning to make money in another way.
As my book is on “technical analysis and charts”, I want something that’s thinking outside the box but represents this idea. I want the designer to be creative to come up with something that represents the book title/subtitle. I have shown colours of the "blue" type I'm looking for. I want the colour to be soft and attractive. I have attached a document with different covers. I have shown what colours I found nice, the types of images I found interesting, the covers I do NOT like and some ideas of how the designer could be creative in this approach. Creativity is KEY!!!
What to avoid
I NOT not want covers that are displayed like: Title > Subtitle > Image > Author name = DO NOT DO THIS (check page 1 of the document attached to understand what I mean) I do NOT want pictures of charts or stock market graphs. These are over-used in the niche. I do NOT want dark/strong colours. I want light and soft colours to the eye.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
awaiszubair collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Kristen listened to the instructions on the brief, provided a number of good designs, and ultimately captured the spirit of the design best among the people I polled. I appreciate her work very much and am very happy with my book cover!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
