hello ZK got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a *UNIQUE and BOLD Cover* for a Computer Book on Windows 10 (ebook and paperback)
Check out hello ZK's Book cover contest…
Books on computers suck. Too many try to cater to the different needs of everyone, from beginners to advanced learners. They’re are dull and boring to read, often painful to understand. A great example of this is the old and popular brand of computer books, "For Dummies". And now, because anyone can publish a book on computers, there are many poor quality, poorly written books with little substance, that are not focused on truly helping readers. Our mission is to change this. We’re creating a series of computer books that make learning about computers, simple and fun. It’s like learning from a best friend, who teaches kids about computers. Our first book is, “Windows 10: How to Solve 99 of Beginner’s Biggest Problems”. It focuses on beginners and the people who need the most help. It’s for the person who is intimidated by computers, because he or she sees it as learning this foreign, alien language. It focuses on empowering a beginner with all the information that they need, in one book with step-by-step guidance. It’s packed with detailed explanations, screenshots, tips and much more to truly help beginners. Instead of reading from beginning to end, use our book like a dictionary. When you don’t understand how to do something specific, just look it up in our book. Our book makes learning about Windows 10, simple and fun.
What's your vision?
We're releasing a computer book, "Windows 10: How to Solve 99 of Beginner’s Biggest Problems”. We want a book cover designed for ebook and paperback. We want the book cover to capture how we're solving the problems of computer books today: *** please make sure to review our company's mission in section above *** 1. It focuses on beginners only, and the people who need the most help 2. It focuses on empowering a beginner with all the information that they need, in one book with step-by-step guidance. It’s packed with detailed explanations, screenshots, tips and much more to truly help beginners. 3. Use it when you need, like a dictionary. When you don’t understand how to do something specific, just look it up in our book. 4. Simple to Understand and Fun to Learn (think: learning from a best friend, that teaches kids about computers) *** Summary of Requirements for Book Cover *** 1. We want readers to instantly understand: - 'WHO' our book is for, - 'WHAT' it offers and makes our book unique, and - 'WHY' we created it (as discussed above) 2. *For ebook and paperback* 3. Text on cover - Title, subtitle, and text "2 Free Bonuses" must be large and bold enough, that when the cover is seen as a small thumbnail (because this is how customers see our ebook on Amazon), you can still clearly read the text on the cover (please review attachment) 4. We are looking for a cover that is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT and UNIQUE from all other Windows 10 Book Covers. Please research what the typical book cover for Windows 10 looks like on Kindle Store. We don't want that. This means, we don't want the cover to have any of the typical imagery, typical colors, typical fonts etc. that are associated with Windows 10. Please see attachments for 2 examples of Windows 10 covers that we think are creative, bold, and unlike all the other Windows 10 books. 5. In addition to being unique from all other books on Windows 10, the cover must look like its worth a lot of money to reflect the premium price for our book. As long as you fulfill these requirements, feel free to use your creativity to experiment with different layouts, fonts, colors etc Thank you, Cheers!
