I am looking for a book cover design for my forthcoming book Lifestyle Entrepreneur. The design should be eye-catching and convey the essence of what the book is all about, which is inspiring and instructing aspiring entrepreneurs, sharing stories about starting businesses and traveling the world and providing a step-by-step framework for readers to turn their own interests and passions into products and services.
The cover concept I have in mind centers around a crest, much like you would see in an old European city or for a university like Harvard. The shape of the crest should be proportional to how three circles overlap in the center (the middle of a Venn diagram).
The Crest an emblem of being a "Lifestyle Entrepreneur" and I envision having a small star tetrahedron in the center with the faceplate divided into four sections, each containing an image indicative of "lifestyle entrepreneurship", such as an airplane outline or a lightbulb.
Above and below the crest should be a ribbon/banner with the words Lifestyle Entrepreneur. A royal and regal style with red velvet, gold braids could look good here, but also open to your creative input.
Optional to have leaves or affects surrounding the crest.
For color scheme I envision maroon, brown, with some red and gold. Like in the Vision-MAP image, but also perhaps with a cross-hatch effect, a texture that gives it some depth and dynamic. Almost like a brown leather suitcase embossed with gold and red stitching.
These are my general ideas, I am especially excited to see your creative input and ideas!
The tentative sub-title of the book is: Live Your Dreams, Ignite Your Passions and Run Your Business From Anywhere in The World - so please incorporate this into the cover design.
Also please include my name: Jesse Krieger on the cover design.
