brandontrew got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Cover design for a Case Interview book
Check out brandontrew's Book cover contest…
Hobbyist writing a book to help people get their dream job, by improving their resume pitch, and their case interview style
What's your vision?
I am writing a book about case interviewing. In order to get a job at consulting firms, large corporates, banks etc, applicants frequently need to go through a case study interview, but very few know how to approach the case, how to position themselves during the application, and then how to interview well. My book describes all of this to them and discusses techniques to nail the interview. I need a cover for the book that will attract attention. I will be selling the book on Amazon book store, where the cover thumbnails attract attention. So please keep this in mind - I want my book to stand out in online bookshelves. The dimensions of the book will be standard 6x9 inches. I would therefore like a very simple white cover, but with high contrast and playful drawing and text that can be clearly read even when the thumbnail is being displayed - people should not have to click on the image to see what the book is. I want a cartoon drawing of a suitcase, stuffed to bursting, and a monkey staring at it quizzically, scratching his head. The text on the cover should be: "What's in a case: How to kick ass at case interviews, and get your dream job" (the main line and tag line can be separated if that would help) The title should also have my name: By Brandon Trew The Back Cover should have the same monkey motif (small somewhere for visual consistency), but should have the following text and bullet points: The first section with my photo (file attached) and the text "During his time at McKinsey & Company, Oxford and Google, Brandon Trew has been a case study interviewer, interviewee, hiring committee candidate trainer. Tired of seeing great candidates fail due to lack of knowledge about what is expected of them, this book was written to even the playing field, revealing the techniques and tricks that all case interviewers look for in a candidate." A second section: "With this book, your dream job is within your reach. I will teach you: - How to stand out of the crowd - tailor your resume and personal positioning to attract the recruiters eye and ensure you get that interview - How case interviewers think, and more importantly how they evaluate you - The basic mandatory phases of a case interview answer. Each phase is crucial, and builds on the one before. - For each phase, the difference between an average response, and a great response. - How to prepare for the big day through live practice. Detailed interviewer scripts will turn your friends or family into realistic interviewers, and give you the real life practice you need to succeed
I will be submitting the covers to different books stores and formats. So I will need the PSD / fireworks base files, for easy custom resizing.
