How lja started their print or packaging design journey

Company name

The Fun of Dying - Find out what really happens next!

Overview

The author, Roberta Grimes, has spent three decades studying a century’s worth of afterlife evidence, and for the first time she has put it all together in a book. This is the story of what *really* happens next.

This book carries a bold title and needs a design to match!

Title: The Fun of Dying
Subtitle: Find out what really happens next!

Author: Roberta Grimes

For the back cover, please use fill text in place of a summary, advance praise, author headshot, etc.

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

This book targets a wide range of people. Its target audience is anyone who has lost a loved one, anyone who will be affected by death, or someone who is afraid of dying.

While he topic is morbid, the message of the book is anything but that!

Requirements

This contest is for the front, spine and back cover.

The book is 6x9 and the spine is 1/2 inch.

Please use any colors you see fit to make your design happen. The author would like to use silver, embossed letters, but this is not a requirement.

**The focus of this book cover is the title.**

The designer is most certainly welcome to include other added touches that you feel would enhance the cover, but please make certain the MAIN focus of the cover is the words of the title.

Please try subtle plays on the word "Fun" in the title. (Though not in all submissions.) For example, a strong sans-serif font for the title, but a fun font for the word "Fun."

The design needs to be commercial enough to fit in on a Barnes & Noble book shelf, yet it needs to be bold enough to carry the strong title and capture the attention of shoppers. We would love to see any subtle imagery hints if you feel inspired.

If you need inspiration for some great covers (some with great subtle imagery), visit here: http://bookcoverarchive.com/genre/nonfiction/

As we see concepts and themes start to emerge that we like, we will update this brief and post in the comments. Please feel free to post questions - we will answer as quickly as possible! We will give feedback just as fast as you can get designs posted.

Thank you!
