What's your vision?
I'm looking for a designer to create the cover for my next bestseller "The Back Pain Epidemic - Key Lifestyle Changes You Must Make". (and my name, Peter Scholten). This book is not another method for stretching or strength training. It's about how to make changes in your everyday life that are essential in order to give your back a chance to heal. Other than tissue inflammation and lack of exercise, it is mostly things like shoes with heels, soft mattresses, "ergonomic" office chairs, and so on, that cause back pain. This book is mostly about how to avoid the mistakes that you are making 23 hours a day rather than how to exercise right one hour a day. (Even though some of the myths and received ideas about stretching and strength training are debunked). Here is the table of content, with important !! sections highlighted !! : Preface 2 Simple questions 2 The story of you 3 Doctors and elephants 4 2. Sleeping with the enemy !! section about choosing the right mattress and sleeping posture !! The missing link: connective tissue (fascia) 6 So where does the mattress come into all this? 8 Try walking in these shoes 12 !! Section about how most shoes force you into bad a bad posture and how to walk right !! Exercise 14 KERS - The Formula One Technology in your feet 15 How your shoes make you “blind” 17 How to be your own chiropractor 17 On walking and running styles 20 Sitting is the new cancer 22 !! SECTION about how most chairs, even ergonomic chairs, are harmful for your back and the right sitting posture !! General observations on movement quality 22 How to sit right 23 Chairs from hell 26 A strong back knows no pain - or does it? 28 !! SECTION about how muscles strength is not a key to a healthy back, what types of exercise make sense and what doesn't !! Why strength training creates more problems than it solves 28 How strength training creates inefficient movement patterns 31 Stretching - a dangerous waste of time 32 !! Why most stretching exercises are pointless and often even harmful !! How long would you like it? 34 Sports 34 Train the brain 35 True mastery - what physical activity makes sense 35 The psychology of back pain 36 Last thoughts 38 Author’s Bio 39 Advertisement 39 Improve Your Posture Now Video Course 39 Senmotic Pure Shoes 40 Senmotic blue Fascia Therapy 41
- This book uses logic, physics, anatomy and biomechanics to overcome bad habits that make your back pain chronic. It is a systemic approach, not an esoteric one. - I want the design to convey something about the title - it's a systemic 24/7 approach involving lifestyle changes (mattress, shoes, chairs, sitting and walking posture, exercise and so on). - I need a print version and an e-book version - they can be similar but the e-book version in particular must be eye-catching in order to stand out when potential customers are searching for back-pain related books on Amazon. A first version of the book is attached for inspiration and information about the content. I would like the cover design to: - appeal to men and women between the ages of 30-50 - reflect the style of the writing - conversational, accessible, not overly medical or technical (but scientific in approach nonetheless) I want to avoid a design that: - is too esoteric or "alternative" - is too flowery or feminine - is too technical or overly masculine - features a main image of a back !!!
