What's your vision?
We wrote this book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1118008855/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=worbet-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0470284897 Now we are writing another one on stocks. You get to design the cover! The book is about looking to what other smart investors are buying for ideas for stock picks... What we want: Title of book *undecided* so just use "The Stock Idea Farm" by Mebane Faber A cover that is: PROFESSIONAL unique simple stands out conforms to replication on eBook and print book Idea #1: Be creative and design your own Idea #2: The theme is a field or farm. Possibly just lots of "flowers", but replace the petal/bulb with company logos. In the case of the companies not allowing use of their logos, we would like to see a second version that uses stock symbols instead of logos. ie AAPL, F, WMT, GOOG, etc List of company logos here: http://slashmarks.com/logos-of-the-100-largest-companies-in-the-world/ and http://www.instantshift.com/2009/01/29/20-corporate-brand-logo-evolution/ Lots of iconic, easy to recognize logos like Apple, Google, Shell, GE, Ford, Target, Bank of America, etc One new idea I'm updating the brief with: Ideas #3: Famous investors sitting at a poker table...(ie the concept is that you get to see their cards). So maybe like the old poker picture with all the dogs sitting at a table but with names like: Warren Buffett, David Einhorn, Steve A Cohen, John Paulson, Kyle Bass, George Soros, Jim Chanos, William Ackman, Carl Icahn, Hugh Hendry... Idea #3b: A big picture of Buffett holding cards and someone looking over his shoulder, or, same picture but with his cards facing out... Idea #4: Similar concept as above (following top hedge funds) but now have all of the hedge fund managers at the bottom and the investor standing on their shoulders (ie famous quote "standing on the shoulders of giants") All of this has to fit on a book cover, so do your best!
originality and simplicity are valued!
