Aldy won the contest for the book cover design and I hired him to do 2 books cover + Interior. I'm very happy with the end result.
- Hass Hijazi
Our project was complicated and Hass rose to the top with a level of skill and professionalism which carried into incredible comps. Well done and would be happy to have on board again.
Very attentive, quick to respond with excellent inputs and a precise interpretation of the brief. A thoroughly professional artist/designer at a competitive cost for the self-publisher.
Very helpful for follow up work!

My book is called 'How To be Creative' and the sub head is "Demystifying The Creative Process'. There are lots of books on creativity for business, but I wanted to write a book for the average person who doesn't think they're creative. It's a short book (you could read it in a couple of hours) and isn't full of creativity exercises. It follows a conversation between two brothers, one a left -brained analytical thinker and one a right-brained more creative thinker. They work together in two offices next to each other. One office is really tidy and one is a complete mess. The two offices represent the two sides of the brain. The left brained thinking brother doesn't find his brother's description of creativity clear enough so he's goes off to search for the secret of the creative process.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want a striking cover. The design can incorporate the back cover but that isn't vital. I want you to feel free to be creative with it. I'm happy if you want to use images using the left and right brain or a lightbulb (but I don't want it to look to cliched). I would also be happy if it's type only, it's really what you think would make a great book cover that will stand out. the dimensions I am thinking of are 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches tall. There are no rules, I just don't want it to look like a business book about creativity.
Here are some examples of some covers I like. You don't have to use a image that represents creativity if you don't want to. It's a pretty open brief as long as the title and the sub head are legible.
