Ben Shatto got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create an eBook cover design for Running an Injury-Free Marathon
Check out Ben Shatto's Book cover contest…
I am a physical therapist and entrepreneur. With the cost of healthcare on the rise, I help beginner to intermediate runners train for an injury-free marathon by offering rehabilitation strategies and practical how-to information to self-treat common running injuries. This comprehensive guide to running is for the person who is trying to maximize performance while adapting to a new form of exercise.
What's your vision?
I would like an eBook cover designed for Kindle. According to Kindle, the final file format should be a .jpg or .tif file. At least 1000 pixels on the longest side. Ideal image height/width ratio is 1.6 (example: 1000 x 1600). Is this correct? I would also prefer a .pdf file of the final cover design. If possible, I would like a .jpg file of the final eBook cover angled with a shadow to appear 3D for a sales page. Thanks. PREFER COLOR (not black and white) and I prefer not to have a white background as I am concerned that it will appear to be floating without borders on the Amazon sales page. Title: The Physical Therapy Advisor’s Guide to (small) Running an Injury-Free Marathon (large) Complete with Training and Rehabilitation Strategies (small, italic) Author: Ben Shatto, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS Cover Image: Ideally, the cover design communicates the accessibility to beginner to intermediate runners and the transformation of maximizing performance. I desire clearly legible text in contrasting colors. I don’t mind photographic images. However, I don’t want a young male runner in his 20s running with a blue sky back ground. I don’t want to see the bottom of an athletic shoe running on a treadmill. I want it to look different than current running eBooks. A design that is unique and eye catching. I like illustrations and the possibility of using a silhouette of runners (preferably not gender specific) possibly as a gradient to show the transformation of running. However, I don’t like the common over-stylized organic exercise illustrations of the human body. (Please see the attached files of my current business card and an idea of one particular illustration style that I like. Thanks.)
Please use your creativity! Please take a moment to view my web site at www.thePhysicalTherapyAdvisor.com. I don’t currently have a logo on my web site. The color scheme doesn’t have to relate to the eBook, but I do prefer clean lines. The eBook will eventually be sold from this web site. It may also be sold via Amazon’s on demand publishing as well as on Kindle and other eBook formats such as iBook. Thank you!
