Entertainment & The Arts
Christopher O’Shaughnessy is a passionate and diverse speaker and author who uses a unique blend of story telling, humor, and provocative insight to engage and challenge his audience. Addressing topics for the international & expat community, and specifically Third Culture (teens who grew up while moving around the globe) or Cross Cultural Teens, Chris communicates with energy and personality.
What's your vision?
Create an eye-catching, attention grabbing, fervor-creating book cover (front, spine, and back) for my forthcoming book, "Arrivals, Departures, and the Adventures In-Between" which is aimed at young adults and teens from the international, expat, and cross-cultural community.
Aimed primarily at young adults (college age) and teens (high school), the book talks about the issues, strengths and challenges of growing up internationally but has been designed very specifically to be "chiefly entertaining... while also teaching" rather than the other way around. It involves a lot of humor and real life tales of adventure to convey deeper themes. As far as concept, beyond the direction above, I'm open to your creative license and genius! Just to throw some more ideas out there as far as imagery to support the theme: passport stamps convey mobility & travel well. For adventure maybe a collection of some sort: souvenirs maybe? The book is for teens/young adults who grow up around the world having adventures in different cultures. I'll need room on the back for some promotional and descriptive text (naturally), and am attaching an author's pic just in case that's helpful.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.

Nelly did a great job of understanding my vision and translating each story into a compelling cover. She was professional, easy to work wit,h and made the process painless. Bonus that she is a lovely person. Would highly recommend her.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
