In 2014 we made a feature documentary called The Connection. The film explores the latest science of the connection between our mind, body and health. We sell The Connection on our website http://www.theconnection.tv and write a weekly blog on the same topic, getting about 20,000 readers a month. The book called The Whole Health Life is a follow up to The Connection and we plan to release it later this year.
About the book
The book is written by a journalist who was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and told that if the disease progressed she could end up in a wheelchair or with organ failure. The author went on a journey around the world interviewing leading experts at the cutting edge of science and discovered that there was far more that she could be doing for her health than even her doctors were aware of. The book is a practical guide that synthesizes the work of leading scientists into a compelling account of how to be well in the modern world. Topics covered include - stress, emotions, belief, diet, exercise, sleep, environment, healthcare, relationships and behavior/habit change.
What we're after.
We'd like a front cover designed for The Whole Health Life. Attached is a more detailed brief which includes some of the key elements. One of the key aspects to consider is that we're re-launching our website under The Whole Health Life brand and would like the books aesthetic to match that of the website and rest of The Whole Health Life branding. We don't have any branding for The Whole Health Life, but are talking with designers about this now. We're hoping that the book design process might instruct our branding discussions, including website design. To put it simply, we're a blank slate and the design elements of the book need to be transferable to website, general branding etc...
