Great Designer who is extremely responsive and produced changes quickly. Hope to work with him again.
We love, love, love our new label. "Amentalblock" just totally nailed what we were going for, even though we didn't quite know ourselves! We couldn't be happier, and have even had comments from other people that they have "design envy"...and they should. Thanks again for all the hard work and the amazing design! :D
Great as always! :)
How cindy.niu started their book cover journey
Who are you known as?
Let's Go, Inc.

Travel & Hotel
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Let's Go is a travel guide company that publishes content written and edited entirely by Harvard students. Our content aims to be irreverent, witty, and written for other college students. This book specifically is one geared towards Harvard college students, and will be titled "The Unofficial Guide presents: 114 Things to Do Before You Graduate."
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We would like a cover design, including the title text and some simple graphic illustration. The words “The Unofficial Guide Presents” should be fairly small/not super prominent, with the main focus on “114 Things to Do Before You Graduate." Then, at the bottom somewhere, we'd like to include "The Harvard Edition".
We would like to see Primal Scream depicted on the cover in some way. Primal Scream is a tradition that occurs at Harvard at midnight on the night before finals start; students strip naked and run around Harvard Yard screaming in one wild, bare-assed drove; tourists often take pictures. (As far as the graphic goes, butts only, please.)
Edit: PLEASE don't use clip art!! It looks unprofessional and cheap. Thank you!
We would like a fun, cheeky design that matches the funny, somewhat risqué writing that will be included in the book. It should be something that appeals to college students.
The colors are up to you, but please keep them to a minimum. We’d like it to be colorful yet minimalist. For example, you could do black and white, with two accent colors (limit them to four colors total). We’d like all images to have a simple, flat-design feel. There should be good use of space (not too cramped/crowded).
Attached, you'll find some samples of book cover designs that we like. (Don't feel limited to these styles; they're just there for inspiration!)
