Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

Business Name


What do you do?

I'm a writer.

How many pages of print design do you need?

only the cover

List the size requirement(s) for your print design

typical paperback cover

What is your industry?


Describe the target audience for your print design

adults who enjoy authors like Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, etc.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your print design?

a misty mountain forest (think Cascade Mountains of Oregon!), a naked man laughing (possibly due to lunacy) > but not looking for a full monty! (i.e., imply nakedness!), a read that promises to be funny and philosophical at the same time

What print design styles do you like?

not a bikini-clad chick hugging a rocketship.... this is serious literature! with real philosophical underpinnings! My image is that of a photograph (but open to alternative designs)... but the man doesn't have to necessarily be front and center... it could be a peripheral angle... all depends on presentation.

What colors do you want to see in your print design?

it's a forest

What colors do you NOT want to see in your print design?

it's a forest... not looking for a bubble-gum manga-fest. Prefer a more natural look.

What adjectives should best describe your print design?

tantalizing, smirky, pondering, I-want-to-open-this-bookish

How will you use the print design?

for a book cover

What content must be included in the print design?

a forest, some dawn mist, naked man laughing (or perhaps smirking?) -> he's just happy to be in that forest! and he's got sandy bushy hair... maybe even a hunk... but, remember, no full monty! (imply hunkiness)...
