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.
Hi my name is Lisa-Marie. I have a great, all natural lipbalm I have been making for 10 years. The name is MAUI10 Lipbalm. It contains Hemp which is a healing property. It can prevent and or clear up fever blisters.Their is no petrolum, which makes your lips more chapped. My main ingredient is Shea Butter. I would like it to contain a Hibicus flower and maybe a surfboard.I am moving to Maui in a few weeks.I would like to give it an island feel.I want to let consumers know it contains natural sunblock. Not a FDA regulated. Let me know what is hot in the Surf and Beach communities. I don't want it too girlie. I want it to appeal to men too. So I need Logo, business cards,website,car magnets ,labels for my slimstick lip balms and labels to be sewn into a line of swimwear I am designing.So WOW me with your ideas. I am very easy to get along with. This project could be ongoing as I am looking to expand into many areas. Lets have fun with this!
I have 14 years of experience in the film industry, and want to transition to a new career in the business field - in sales, or the business side of theatre or film. My resume is in need of some assistance with the design and letterhead, with my experience emphasized but also a professional look.
I am looking to hire someone to design 10 different photoshop files that incorporate a baby's first birthday.
I need these sent back to me in psd so that I can edit them when needed.
I would also need a list of the fonts used or if possible have them emailed to me.
I can send on an example of a design that should give you an idea as to what I need.
My project is simple, but my timing is tight!
I had a Xmas card designed ( looks great) however the 4 photos that were used are not printing well, so I need to replace. I have the 4 photos, but need someone who can replace the existing photos with my new one... same size/shape. The card is 5 x 7, and there is one large photo on the front ( 4 x 4) and 3 small ones on the back ( 1x1)
That's it... again, timing counts; would love to have it completed by tomorrow ( wed)
