I seek your unique creativity and established design skillset for the soft cover design of a commercial fiction novel, THE STRAWBERRY SEED, complete at 109,000 words.
THE STRAWBERRY SEED follows the life of a hero’s son, a bemused academic with wanderlust who has become the unknowing puppet of an odd and ageless Spaniard. After surrendering his ideal life teaching private school in romantic upstate New York, the protagonist reunites with his addictive childhood mate on a ship crawling towards the Second World War and its short-lived but savage hold on Algeria. Obsessed with his own father’s acclaimed heroics, the protagonist loses himself in the fantastic setting, and soon inexplicable things begin to happen all around. Left behind in New York, the protagonist’s fiancé struggles to decipher hints within his wartime letters that could bring him home. In doing so, she enlists the help of the mysterious old Spaniard, who in turn reveals the most overwhelming myth, or truth, of all.
THE STRAWBERRY SEED is a fantastical expedition that weaves in and out of reality at the reins of both situational absurdity and sentimentality. This begs a design equally as relevant and abstract as the metaphor therein.
Things to focus on:
• Large title
• Fonts are paramount
• Bold colours with deep contrast
• Must standout in thumbnail form
• Literal and metaphorical use of the Strawberry/Seed
• Themes of the novel include: coming-of-age friendship, the great depression, war and anti-war, legend, myth and folklore, long-distance correspondence, Romantic and Victorian literature, otherworldly and divine intervention, immortality.
• Tone of the novel includes: witty dialogue and comedic narrative intertwined with rich memorable characters in obsessively lively environments.
We are looking for someone to create a logo for our new business. WE are a Hair Lounge that is going to be new and exciting but bringing in the aspects of the roarin' 20's. We want our logo to stand out and truly give a sense of what we are. Our salon is inspired by the show Boardwalk Empire and the styles of that time.
Logo for a company call Hatchett Glass. An Automobile, Residential, and Commercial glass replacement and repair company.
He wants a "hatchet" to be present in his logo (which has nothing to do with glass)but has been in his family for 3 generations.
He also wants a kinda mirrored image of the wording to appear as a reflection off glass.
I can not find the exact hatchet anywhere on the web. I will attach an example of the logo he sent over to me with the hatchet and an example of what I have already started putting together and you can be the expert and hopefully put something together for me.
I am launching a division of my lingerie brand called 'panties4poverty". Need a cool logo that will appeal to the savvy buyer at major retail stores. My brand is for profit and very similar concept as TOMs Shoes. I have factory in El Salvador. This can lead to more opportunities....so only the creative mind reply!!
My company creates photo books for professional and enthusiast photographers. Customers can build their photo books using our web-based tool. We provide a selection of pre-made templates to suit a number of popular themes. E.g. Portfolio, recipe book, new baby, wedding album, etc.
We are looking for graphic designers to expand our selection of pre-made 'themed' book templates.
Templates needn't be complex. Many consist of a number of spread layouts with photo placeholders and a few design elements that suit the style. Some illustration work may be required to create design elements - though not essential since we have an extensive library of elements available.
We need quite a few templates so this is not a one-off job. If you do good work, we can hire you again and again. Past themes have taken a few hours to a day at the most - so this can be very lucrative for a talented layout designer.
We have topics we would like themes for, but you will have a great deal of creative freedom on implementation. Ideally we would like to see a proposal for what you have in mind.
Applicants should be prepared to show examples of similar work.
I need this photo turned into a very simple logo for a new house cleaning company called Jamie Cleans 4 U. Photo has to remain realistic (don't want it looking like a cartoon) but very simple. Background needs to be removed, Top of her head needs to be filled in where it is cut off. Need transparent background for different print productions and embedding on website. Also, needs to be converted to a black and a whit silhouette. If you don't speak English; have a phone number; Skype; or Google Talk/Chat/Voice please do not reply.
