And the winner is…
“Think About It”- Ideas shaping digital media and marketing in the new decade
The new book will be launched by mid February in both Kindle format and paperback format.
Thanks everyone for not only helping us choose the right cover but also with your critique and suggestions for improvements.
We went through all the suggestions in detail and tried to achieve a balance. And that brought us to the final choice.
And the Winner is- Cover design no. 8
Of course this design will not be used as it is here- but with further changes and more cleaning up. Will keep you posted.
A whole lot of friends commented and decided us to choose the right cover- across platforms- Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and emails.
Truely, a cover design chosen by you. Some of the responses here:
Excerpt from Facebook:
Some, like Maria, CEO and co-founder of Linqia from Barcelona- had some gems for all the designs
(We loved it!)- her comment:
Hope my comments help in some way:
- Cover 8: Very clean, illustration offers insight into the theme of the book, great font
- Cover 7: Icons are effective showing humans however overused throughout the industry. Also the font doesn’t work at all.
- Cover 6: Warm design which weakens the overall affect you’re trying to achieve by making the statement ‘Think about it’. It’s also quite busy.
- Cover 5: The lines at the top make the cover too busy and conflict with the colorful people icons. Again – these icons are used heavily throughout the industry which could connote ‘another web 2.0 book’
- Cover 4: Very beautiful design however on first impression the book looks to be about financial matters
- Cover 3: Extremely busy! Too many design elements.
- Cover 2: The wireframe of the man is effective and would work well with typography from cover 8 with no additional graphics.
- Cover 1: Great colours. Strong typography. Lines are also strong in ‘thought’ and ‘landscape’
The 2 that really stand out and project a positive first impression are covers 1 and 8.
I can’t put all the comments here- but some friends went to the extent of finding the right font and asking us to use those in the text instead.
It was great. We tried to follow as much as we could (and as much as our Art Director would allow us to)
Now just if the economics could allow us to collectively arrive at the cost of the book too.
Think about it
