Looking for a MINIMAL, CLASSIC and ORIGINAL book design
MOOD: Bring to mind a small but powerful book of words/ideas that one can return to time again like a manifesto or bible. Both timeless and modern. The feeling of zen would be a bonus but most imagery in this category has been so overdone it has become clicheed.
IMAGERY: A minimal but bold cover with sans serif text and a single original graphic. The graphic should be an original, not clip art, and not a 3d rendering but more of a 2D illustration. A few ideas include:
- a diamond with seven pieces or seven sides (from the side view or top down) to play off the idea of seven principles
- a lotus flower has zen connotations and many layers, something that aligns well with the book (again, could play off the idea of "7")
NOTE: I have attached some images of covers and graphic ideas but I welcome and encourage original ideas from the designers that deviate from the above imagery, as long as it fits the mood. Geometric and abstract designs are great as long as they do not come across as cold and technical - this book is intended for freelancers like yourselves, women and introverts.
