9 Steps to Getting Your Sh*t Together
Ross Jackson and Grant Kennedy (Lean Lads Lifestyle)
Ross and Grant are gym owners from Glasgow, who specialise in helping men who have let themselves go lose weight and "get their shit together"
In their mid twenties, they got into great shape, mens health cover model type condition - then as they got closer to their 30's, they gradually let themselves go and found themselves stuck in a rut. They had launched a business without much of a plan and it was failing miserably... resulting in them hiding behind booze and drugs to mask their problems. With one last throw of the dice before losing everything, they managed to get their shit together, save their business and get back into the kind of shape they were in their mid twenties - only this time they managed to stay there.
Men aged 27 - 35
Eye catching Audio book cover, with pictures of the authors on it. Important it looks a bit "edgy" and different. Want the design to emphasise the fact we aren't just to guys in good shape - the image should show that we were at one point struggling with drugs and alcohol and managed to to turn our lives around. Will be used for advertising purposes mainly, so important the cover catches attention. Definitely open to the pictures being cartoon / caricature style, or normal human images. We use the font "DIN condensed" on most of our social media, so would be happy for you to use that. The book is about going from a low point / being stuck in a rut of drugs, alcohol and anxiety, to breaking out of that rut, regaining control getting into great shape physically and mentally - if that "journey" or transition could be captured in some way on the cover, that would be ideal.
What to avoid
No stock images ideally
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.
rossy8 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
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
