Book cover type
Lightning Source / IngramSpark
These are initial design ideas put together by Steve that show how he would like to see the photographs used as full page images with text overtop
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
The cover needs to incorporate colours from the British flag (red, white & blue) with blue being dominant, plus accents of Gold (preferably metallic)
The front cover needs to be a full bleed cover image with copy over top (a selection of approved images have been included with the brief). Gold and Union Jack colours. Possibly include the swoosh from Steve's logo (also included). Needs to be bright and inspiring, but not cheesy.
What to avoid
Please avoid cheesy clichés of gold medals and Union Jack flags. Steve is also very keen to make sure that the cover is not too serious... the story does have some very serious and dark elements to it, however, the purpose of the book is to inspire so the cover needs to be bright and positive.
