We're a marketing agency seeking our "go-to" eBook and infographic designer. We're using this competition as an opportunity to:
1) deliver a fantastic high quality eBook to our client
2) find our next go-to designer for these sorts of projects - we'll invite you to 1:1 projects once we know you're a rockstar designer and an excellent communicator. Clear and regular communication is just as important to us as the design itself.
Please see the already designed eBook cover "How Associations Will Thrive or Die" for colors and fonts in the reference materials section. Feel free to add in additional accent colors that you feel are complimentary to the primary cover colors.
Here's an eBook example of the style our client likes (but using the clients color palate). Note - ours will be vertical, not horizontal. Please use this as inspiration - don't copy, but believe you can improve on the quality of design:
We want the design quality to feel like a very high end magazine.
Below is a link to the first chapter. Use it to set the design theme/tone, and then just repeat it throughout the other chapters, we'll add a link to the remaining chapters in a few days.
We'd like it to be laid out in a way (vertical book format) that allows us to share it as a PDF or send it to a printer (so the client can send these to their customers).
We love bold colors, minimal design, with graphical elements to keep the pages engaging/interesting.
We love bold typesetting, an example of great type usage here: https://www.wired.com/2015/05/silk-road-2/
