Print on demand paperback, followed by e-book & hardback versions. The book cover will form the colour scheme/palette for a website & Facebook page. The novel is the first of a trilogy and therefore it is important that the branding works across 3 different novels.
What content must be included in the print design?
An escaping/running man in block colour. Swirling pattern/Paisley. Swastikas & Egyptian hieroglyphs but subdued, in the background perhaps forming a pattern scheme. White & orange/ochre colour scheme. The title of the book: The Butcher's Son. The author name: Jeremy Good. A lot of white so that the design cover stands out. Back cover blurb, (to be supplied on request). Spine title & author name.

Although I have called this project '1976 Thriller', this does not mean I am after a cover that looks like something from the seventies. My vision for the cover is this: A swirling gaseous design, surrounded by white. In the white, trails of a 'Paisley' style pattern which subtely, but only if it works, contains tiny swastikas & heiroglyphs. Inside the swirling pattern of orange, ochre, brown etc. is the figure of a man running/escaping. He too is coloured to complement the pattern. Can I say that creatives should look at the wonderful designs for Ben Galley's 'Emaneska' series for inspiration. Though the genre is completely different, the level & attitude of the designs is exactly what I'm looking for. Though I have tried to be quite specific as to my requirements here, I am still open to suggestions and modern/avante gard designs. Best of luck and thank you.

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has requested a refund. And, because we offer buyers a money back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise.
To reward the loyal creatives who worked hard on this project and all the others on the site, we've taken the proceeds from this project and used them to fund our monthly cS Awards program. The cS Awards are issued every month based on varying criteria but are a simple way that we give back to the community and reward our creatives.
