Style and Concept
What print design styles do you like?
Painting or artwork that is a balance between the abstract and the real. Nothing that looks like a painting of a picture but nothing that is too modern and so abstract that you can't figure out what's going on at first glance. Almost a pastel perhaps.
What colors do you want to see in your print design?
Brown and red like the arizona desert, a burning orange like the sunset in the desert. These are important.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your print design?
Blue and Grey if you can avoid it.
What adjectives should best describe your print design?
tragic, emotional, empty
How will you use the print design?
Digital E-Book Cover and Back
What content must be included in the print design?
The title on the cover:
Strength and Strength Alone
How the U.S. Military Can Remain Top Dog in the 21st Century
John L. Childs
The back should just be the rest of the design. The additional content will come later.
I included photos I took in Afghanistan to give the designer perspective, color, and an idea of what emotions I'm going for here. Also the attached "JLC" is the currency font.
