They provide professional insights and best practices to help nonprofit organizations maximize each constituents' visit to their an organizational website.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This will be for a paperback book; the first in a series. The book's trim size will be 5.5" wide x 8.5" tall. The author's business logos will probably be on the back cover (so don't worry about them). I provided them for information only and in case someone wanted to work something into their motif or gimmick.
We need a powerful book cover that communicates strength and confidence. This pair of authors are the Ries & Trout of nonprofit marketing and brand positioning.
The business book "Traction" by Gino Wickman would be a good example to look at. It has a strong focal image, no author portraits, but bold fonts, colors, and symbolism with the close up photo of the tire tread. I'll load some other examples below.
Not sure how relevant images of people may or may not be. The title could shake lose some creative greatness.
This will be the first of several books by this pair of authors, all related to best practices for nonprofit success in marketing, growth, outreach, fundraising, etc. A cover that might include some gimmick or motif that could be translated to other titles and themes would be ideal.
