Filipino Freelance Web Designer / Graphics Artists Since 2001

Recently, my client for the Invest For Living e-Book Cover Design requested a new design for the e-Book cover but this time he sent over a picture and he wanted me to use it into the design. The e-Book is a guide to retirement planning and the picture that he sent over shows a male and a female senior adult embraced by a couple of kids, boy and girl.

Invest For Living e-Book Cover(Invest For Living e-Book Cover)

Well, I've already designed three e-Book Covers for Invest For Living and this request was for a fourth one making it a little bit harder because I was already out of ideas. To make it less hard, I kept the design of the fourth e-Book cover clean and simple which was what the client wants.

By the way, the title of the e-Book was also changed from The Ultimate Retirement Planning Guide to The Ultimate 5-step Retirement Planning Guide. As you can see the change was very minimal. I guess, adding "5-step" in the title made the e-Book more specific to what it was really about.

Rejected e-Book Cover Design

This week, someone contacted me about designing an e-Book cover, a banner for a webpage and a side banner for a Facebook page. He requested three items and he wanted to see samples to choose from. Well, creating samples for someone to choose from is like working for free because if the samples were all rejected then you just spent time working for nothing.

For this request, I decided to create only one sample and I did it for the e-Book cover. To help in the design, I was given the title of the e-Book and what it was for. Well, I'm used to designing something from just a title but having more information is always welcome because it will make the task easier.

Unfortunately, the design that I submitted was rejected because it was not the look they were after. If I had submitted many samples and all were rejected then that would had been very terrible for me. Working on only one design or sample was a good idea because it didn't let me waste a lot of time working for free.

  3. A few times there is a not very great shock like dampness in your loft or things you might have not been predictable on like having your HVAC overhauled consistently. house for rent century city

  21. Your designs to e-book covers look good, but it also seems generic for me. Nowadays, designs are more like modernly complex - with a lot happening on the background but has one emphasis. Greetings from Roofing Contractors Kamloops.
