Check out chaundellmonn's Book cover contest…
Finding herself unfulfilled and unhappy, Chaundell Monn forged her own path with tangible action steps to release herself from limiting beliefs and expectations. Now, as a life coach, she helps other women to do the same by becoming trailblazers in their own life and learning to trust their Inner Compass.
If you feel guilty for feeling unhappy despite a good life, it’s time to stop and take control of your happiness. In Trailblazer, Chaundell Monn walks you through her three-step Trailblazer process to help you find happiness: find your bearings, trust your inner compass, and clear your path. At the end of your journey, you will take responsibility for your life adventure, make your own rules, and blaze your own path, joining the many sisters who have gone before you. You are not alone. So go, be a Trailblazer, and reclaim your happiness.
A woman, most likely a mom, between the ages of 30-50.
Book cover type
I want this to invoke a feeling/vibe. One of deep self-reflection, exploration of self, and taking a leap of faith. Pacific Northwest forest gives off this vibe both in colors and scenery. The book is all about Trailblazing, making a new path, so forestry imagery is encouraged. The moody, forest vibe can have a masculine feel, but there needs to be some sort of feminine balance to it, perhaps through fonts or contrasting colors. I want more art/illustration, not literal stock photos. See the attached file with an example of a couple book covers that I feel give off the vibe I'm looking for.
What to avoid
Yellow in the title or as a contrasting color. Covers with only a stock photo and text. Anything that shows an established trail. This book is about being a Trailblazer, so I don't want anything with an already defined trail. I want Trailblazer to be one word and not broken up.
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.
