Alex really listens and demonstrates his understanding of a design brief by delivering outstanding work. He was easy to work with as we finalized details for our print and ebook. He was also quick and courteous--a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

Use the book description to get a good feel for your design.
Congratulations! If you are reading this book, it’s very likely that
someone that loves or cares for you very much gave it to you. It’s also
very likely that you recently graduated from high school and are about
to embark on the greatest journey of all time—life.
Your basic education is complete. For the last 12 years, that’s what
you did, with adults there every step of the way telling you what to do.
That’s about to change. Sure, there will still be adults all around you
giving you direction, but what’s different now is it’s up to you whom
you listen to and what guidance you will follow. In order to help you
navigate this journey into the unknown, this owner’s manual has been
created for you. You own your future; hopefully, this owner’s manual
helps you make the most of it!

for our chosen print vendor.

- Please do your design work in CMYK mode!
- We will need all fonts that are used in the winning design to build the actual print file.
