How to Be VP
Devon Hennig is a VP with 10+ years experience running high-performing teams at private and public companies.
HOW TO BE VP is half playbook, half wild-but-true stories from vice presidents across various industries. Written by Devon Hennig, a VP with 10+ years experience running high-performing teams at private and public companies, it’s a hands-on guide packed with advice, frameworks, and templates you can steal alongside stories you can’t help but laugh at.
VPs at private and public companies. Executives of all ages, from late twenties and early thirties on. English-speaking countries.
I'll be promoting this book heavily on LinkedIn, so I need an attention-grabbing cover that stops people when they scrolling and catches their interest. The title should be big and bold. It should feel modern, sharp, and clean. Here are some examples I like: https://thumbor.forbes.com/thumbor/fit-in/1200x0/filters%3Aformat%28jpg%29/https%3A%2F%2Fblogs-images.forbes.com%2Fnetapp%2Ffiles%2F2014%2F09%2Fthe-soft-edge.jpg https://d3dkvycwtjicra.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/25102335/The-hard-thing-about-hard-things-key-takeaways.jpg https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/5202d1b3e4b099a0812c51a3/1415299176689-2AJ07HL39S4W2BYJ6NLA/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kFjiq_0Ek1NItql1dLmsgNNZw-zPPgdn4jUwVcJE1ZvWEtT5uBSRWt4vQZAgTJucoTqqXjS3CfNDSuuf31e0tVGQiKALUW-YxfFfP4p0PvHcTla7NnOOvQwSGt9YLKLGBhEym7bB5Y8EAaW-uC2HxJQ/The-Focused-Few.jpg?format=1000w https://99designs.ca/book-cover-design/contests/ebook-cover-self-help-book-reaching-dreams-701315
What to avoid
Avoid cheesy business images and anything that looks too "stock photoy". It shouldn't feel old school or boring or too textbooky. It's a book for younger executives. Should be professional but not dated.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $399.

Aaniyah.ahmed was great to work with! She presented a number of attractive designs that showed great understanding of our brief, and then was very responsive to feedback and communicative throughout the process. She made adjustments as requested. Appreciated the stress-free and pleasant experience.
