Excellent design! Original premise and brilliant excecution!
I can't think of anything the artist could have done better
Rashmita was great to work with, easy to speak with and was very understanding when it came to changes in the cover design. The time difference between New York and India was the only hindrance on our communication. Otherwise, highly recommend Rashmita.
A great result and a pleasure to work with Gan. Very accommodating and responsive with high quality work.
How marcel.roith started their book cover journey
9 Länder in 9 Monaten
I'm a 22 year old Management student who's big passion is traveling and mastering new challenges. My life is all about spreading positivity and encouraging people to step out of their comfort zone and do what they really want to do.
This is the real story of me traveling the world for 9 months. I talk about all my concerns, restraint and unfulfilled dreams as an 18-year-old student and how I finally overcame all that to do what I always wanted to do. Without a plan I left home with a guy I had just met and flew over to Australia. When in the beginning I was stilled filled with anxiety and doubt, soon after we left I started to notice how incredibly amazing life can become once you step out of your comfort zone and just do what feels right. This is the story of me eventually traveling through 9 countries, roadtripping NZ, meeting a jungle tribe in Vanuatu, partying in Thailand and finally coming back home to surprise everybody.
The main audience, of course, will be people my age who are in a similar situation and I aim to inspire. But in general everybody who loves traveling and freedom and likes to read about different cultures and adventure stories perfectly fit my target group.
Book cover type
What colors do you want to see in your design?
The most important for me is, that it's bright, catchy and positive. When people see the book in a shelf next to 30 others, this one needs to be the first their eyes get drawn on. So I'd prefer bright colors. Only seeing the book needs to make you smile so feel free to do something a little funny or different than what's "regular". In general feel free to experiment a little and do what you like because obviously you're the experts. I will also include a cover design that I created and the cover photo I used. My skills are very limited so you don't need to stick with it but maybe it can serve as a little inspiration.
I'd like if you could somehow use the photo of me skydiving I uploaded. I'd also like a photo of me on the back if possible. It could also be a good idea to include the flags of the 9 countries I've been to: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Germany
What to avoid
I uploaded my original self made cover design. This is only meant to serve as an inspiration. My skills are limited so you don't need to stick with it. Maybe it might be cool if you could use the photo of me skydiving somehow. It could also be a good idea to include the flags of the 9 countries I've been to: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Germany
