Business & Consulting
I am a life + business coach for women. I inspire women to upgrade their lives personally and professionally in the quickest and most fun way possible. My book Lucky Bitch is about manifesting your ideal life - creating magic and doing the hustling, practical work to make it all happen. My brand is about fun, inspiration, motivation, fun, success, fresh, inspiring, practical, down to earth, making things happen, bright, happy, dynamic. It's not corporate but it's not hippie either. My ideal client is a female in her 30s, obsessed with personal development and entrepreneurship, ambitious, ethical, hard-working, creative, open-minded and ready to move fast to achieve her BIG ASS goals.
What's your vision?
Need - an inspiring best-selling book cover that compels women to buy it, love it and become a lucky bitch. My current cover doesn't cut it, as I'm starting to get interest from magazines and other retailers. Specs: 5x8 with front and back designed (copy attached) Press quality PDF and jpeg of just the front. ** Please follow template provided with exact guidelines ** Please check out my website: http://www.deniseduffieldthomas.com/ and the current book cover is here: http://www.luckybitchbook.com/ The current colours I use on my site are all here (for inspiration) http://www.colourlovers.com/palette…ght_Summer (you don't have to use these exact colours) The font used on my website is Lato (free google font), the Lucky Bitch font is SHELBY. Photos of me: https://plus.google.com/photos/1181…gOGdl-OGIg I like how the current cover is bright and happy, but it's not quite professional enough and needs to be better. Please keep to a summery happy type palette - blues, greens, yellows And of course, I'm happy to see what you come up with! Please avoid - Nothing flowery, too girly or old fashioned No - pink, purple, red colours No - "tough" or army type imagery No clip art or pictures of women (if you're going to use a pic of a woman, use one of mine)No gimmicky pictures of four leaf clovers, dice, cards, slot machines, fortune cookies, etc
Cover Template instructions How to use your Template Open the PDF or PNG file for the Paperback Book Cover Template in your image editing software. Create a new layer in your image editing software. This layer will serve as the design layer. Design your cover in the design layer, using the template PDF or PNG file as the guide layer. The artwork should extend to the outside edge of the template's pink zone to ensure a white border will not exist within the printed work. Do not move the guide layer, as it is properly aligned for our printing specifications. Ensure text and/or images that are intended to be read do not appear in the pink zones of the template. The barcode area is indicated in yellow on the template. Do not place important images or text intending to be read in the barcode location. We suggest filling in this area with your background color or design. Once your design is complete, you will need to turn off the guide layer so that it is not printed on your final product or rejected during the review process. If you are unable to turn off the guide layer, then you will need to format the artwork so that it completely covers the guide layer. Flatten all layers and save the file as a press quality PDF

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
DeniseDT collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
