I need help designing a modern, maybe even modern-retro, self-help book cover, spine, and back that has a total of 166 pages. I'm a simple guy; I love black and white w/ splashes of color to accent key ideas, images, etc. I would like my book to be a reflection of myself.
Cover Design Idea:
*Please view the attached file titled "LOUDER! Design #2" get a better idea of what I would like.
1) The background is black.
2) Text is White
3) There will a black and white, old-school megaphone peering out from the side of the book.
4) The "message" coming out of the megaphone will be "LOUDER!"
- The size of each letter will progressively get larger. "L" will be the smallest size and slowly increasing in size with each letter. "!" will be the largest size. This concept is to symbolize the "message" getting louder.
5) Each letter will have its own individual background color. Similar to the idea of the "message" getting louder, I want the colors to get "louder". Since "L" is the smallest sized letter, it will have a darker colored background. Therefore, "!" will have a bright, vibrant colored background.
1) I want a part of the megaphone on the spine. Please view the attached file titled "LOUDER! Design #2".
To be honest, I'm not sure what I want here. I would love your professional opinion! Please feel free to allow your creativity to run wild!
Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing your design!
