This project required one book cover to be created for my children's series that could be utilized as a template with small changes for each additional book added to the series. This designer went above and beyond even implementing last minute ideas and changes. I was given more than I could have asked for. Further, she did extra work without requiring me to add jobs. By the end of my competition the choice of designs were between her and one other designer based on the polls the other designer was winning. However, MayAbdellatif's communication allowed her to come out on top. Changes were made promptly and questions were answered within a reasonable time frame. A joy to work with. I will be utilizing her again.
Excellent design, according to my design brief. He read it carefully and created some great designs. Terrific responses to my feedback. He won out over many great designs and designers. I recommend him.

Learning the ABC's is loads of fun with this totally charming rendition of the Alphabet! Children will love listening to the clever prose and more as they build all-important letter recognition skills that lay the foundation for reading success. Each book includes a fun story PLUS flashcards for interactive games. A playful way to build letter recognition and make sure kids really know their ABCs! For use with Grades PreK–1. Also available in holiday editions made to ignite your child's imagination.
Instructions: This is a template that will be utilized for several books within the series. The series consists of holiday editions with the alphabets turning into various scenes from that holiday. There are currently five editions, one regular, two Halloween, one Thanksgiving, and one Christmas. The template would need to be changed in some way to differentiate between the different series. How this is done is totally up to the designer. Something cohesive must be utilized to tie the series together, i.e. the basic design may stay the same but the colors are changed to reflect the new theme. The subtitle will change with each book, or if the provided illustrations can be incorporated in a way that is cohesive, they can be interchanged etc. There are no specific colors. I prefer something playful that will catch a child's eye. If you require any further information don't hesitate to contact me.
Copyrights: I would need full rights to all works and the raw files to make the necessary changes from book to book.
