How Yves Gautier started their other graphic design journey

Overview

Published writer. Background in sociology, deep interest in psychology, music, movies. This is my second book on Michael Jackson. I tried to understand him, using the psychology as a tool. I did a very big work to make it fun an easy to read.

If you are entering this contest now, please make something original, search for new visual ideas, symbols. The game is still open.

This product will be first released as an ebook, and then as a paperback or hardcover book.

As an ebook, the cover will be first seen only in a post stamp format, so the CONTRAST must be strong, and the cover easily readable.

(May be you noticed something : english is not my native language... the book will be translated by a pro).

INCENTIVE 1 : of course, you will get full credential, and there will be an active link in the ebook to go directly to your web site.

INCENTIVE 2 : I entend to make a "How I choose the design of this book "page on my website. Every top 4 finalist, if they are ok with that, will have their cover on this page, with a direct link to their website (I will only ask for a tiny format like 125 x125. At this stage, feel free to put a big red tag "project" on it !)

INCENTIVE 3 : All contestor will get a free copy of this ebook when released, if they ask for it.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

This product is for people daring to understand who Michael Jackson really was. This is not the official story. It is not designed for fans. It is more of an essay. It is also a book for people who wants to understand the way Michael Jackson choose to communicate (using rumors). I also explain how the Thriller video clip works, why Michael had surgery. I talk much about childhood, this is a VERY IMPORTANT part of the book. The idea of multiple personnalities too. The most surprising chapter is on Michael Jackson fatherhood. Reading this book, you will, someway, know how it felt to be the King of Pop.

YVES GAUTIER

If you enter this contest now, please, give me a brand new design.

1/ Ebook cover
(JPG or gif, like everything else)

3D, A4 format.

Strong and strange. Black or deep blue should be the main colours, with white and grey.

The central idea is the door. Neverland gates can be used.
Then the night, shadows, suspens, full moon, The shadow of a man ? Michael Jackson's shadow? MICHAEL AS AN ADULT AND AS A CHILD ?

Symbols (a key point) : all seeing eye (MJ inside the eye?), pyramid, MJ with a skull in it's hand, like in old paintings. Macbeth. Oedipus. ET (from the Spielberg moovie) Surgical mask. Masks. Lost boy.

You must suggest things. This cover could, someway look like a thriller book cover, but not so much.

A few more words : Secret report. Neverland ferris wheel. Broken puppets. Broken dreams. Personnality disorder. Multiple personnality. Multiple frames. Broken mirors. Haunted castle. Magic show.

2/The book cover,
same as the ebook cover but in 2 D

"U.S. trade format", that is 6''x9'' (or 15.24 cm x 22.86 cm)

I need a high definition quality, this material will be printed.

3/Banner (with 3D cover)
320x250 (medium rectangle)
Use shadow on the cover of the book.
Background colour must create an interesting contrast.
With a button "Clik here for free preview" (underlined)
and http://www.backdoortoneverland.com

Please : Make sure I have full rights to use any art/photos, I don't joke with copyright issues.

Good luck ! Again, if your work is up to the task, you will get specific feedback.
