The project. An attractive bookplate for our charity.
We would like you to design a distinctive bookplate to be placed on the inside cover of academic books that our charity donates to small university libraries.
Qualities we are looking for in our bookmark. We are looking for a design that
- - is distinctive,
- - uses color,
- - has an artistic quality,
- - is easy to read, and
- - gives this book project a unique brand identity
We have a strong aversion to traditional bookplates, which we find to be flat, bland, and stuffy.
Our very preliminary thoughts on design. We want to make clear that we enlist your services because we want to take advantage of your creative talents. We do not have the creativity and skills to design a bookplate that meets our goals. We are depending on you for this, and we encourage you to allow your creative instincts to range broadly and freely.
We can give you an idea of the design directions that we have discussed internally. These are reflected in the attached document. It sets forth some design elements that we have found attractive and some that we find unappealling. We ask that you consult that document before you begin to create a design.
Size. The bookplates are to be 4 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
Text for the bookplate. We would like the bookplate to include the following text, in a format and font that you recommend:
