Working with JovanaM was a real pleasure. She designed the cover for a little book titled 'Burn, Baby, Burn: Spark The Creative Spirit Within'
Jovana's design sense is superb. I managed a design team in New York City . . . and Jovana ranks with the best of them. She has a playful way with both the typography and icons (in this case a flame with a heart in the negative space). It's really clever the combinations she comes up with. From the very beginning of the design contest her work was always a standout.
While we might have had slight language or communication issues a couple of times, Jovana always was happy to provide fresh iterations to get us closer to the final result.
Jovana went far beyond what I expected. When I would ask for a change, she would give me more than I asked for. She almost always gave me several variations . . . which made choosing the strong elements that much faster. And it also made for a stronger design overall.
The final cover design is world class. I've been studying successful cover design in my categories (creativity, spirituality, self-help/personal growth) and she has created a design that can stand next to the very best in the field.
I'm so impressed that I will look for ways to work with Jovana again.

I need a book cover for the book I am writing. At this point I believe the title will be, Pain is Fantastic! Now we all know that Pain Sucks which was one of my original ideas for the title but Pain is Fantastic should catch the amazon researcher by surprise. The purpose of this book is to educate new patients and potential new patients in the value of chiropractic care and the value of making better choices for ourselves in regards to health. Acute pain, chronic pain debilitating pain are all signs of and underlying dysfunction. The pain we feel is simply our bodies screaming for us to pay attention. I want people to feel curious, intrigued, comforted and eager to pick up the book, open it and read it from cover to cover in one sitting. I want them to mark it up and bend over the pages for future reference. I want the book cover to stand out from the rest. It needs to pop!
One of my favorite authors is Tony Robbins and I like his book covers. However, people do not know my name so I would not like my image to be too much of the cover. This is not a book about how amazing I am. It is a book about how amazing we all are in regards to our abilities to heal from within. Regarding photos, I have attached 5 photos. I like the hand over hand one under my chin but wanted to include the others because I do not know how you will be using the photo. Maybe the photo will be on the back cover only but I am not a designer but considering I am only known in my local community a small photo only. You help me decide.
