A cover for my book, called "A User's Guide To Chinese Medicine"
It is a book for people who are having, or considering having some kind of Chinese medicine treatment. It describes the process, and the 5 branches of Chinese Medicine:
-Tui Na Massage
-T'ai Chi & Qi Gong
Above all, the design should be CLEAN, NEAT and sophisticated. It should reflect the style of my practice, which is professionaland practical. N othing too 'hippy' or ethereal, please!
The design should be 'approachable' and not too much like a text book.
Some use of colours, but not too colourful. Blues, purples, greys etc.
A Chinese feel is good, but should not be overtly 'Chinesey' - please keep it subtle.
A couple of ideas (not essential - I'm interested in seeing a range of entries)
- I'd like to see some designs based around, or including a circle (see for instance http://www.amazon.co.uk/Entrepreneu…09K6WNNW/)
- Bamboo makes a striking image - but keep it subtle, maybe more as a watermark or background theme?
- 5 branches of Chinese medicine (see above) could be used as bullet points on front page - I'd like to see options with and without.
No lotuses or other cliched 'health' images, please!
