#WTART Update 04: Please help us choose a cover! Things are getting serious!

Whenever I look for someone to work with on projects, I look for someone with the right attitude. I don’t care much if the person I want to work with has never done what I need done before. What I care about is if they care about the project and aren’t afraid to try things out. I care to find someone who has a style and is cheerful to take on any challenge.

When looking for a designer for Work Trips and Road Trips, I looked at many different portfolios and saw some amazing work, and if I could have, I would have hired every single one of the designers that applied. (Which, of course, wasn’t possible.) One thing I had in my mind was that given the books come as a series, I needed to look for someone who has a style, but who can also live up to Diana Ovezea's style and the direction she created when designing This Year Will Be Different

And luckily, I found Chris

Whenever I work with designers, I usually give them a briefing to browse the books people share on Instagram because that’s where you can learn to understand what type of covers catch people’s attention. 

These are the ones Chris found that she felt inspired by...Great titles, right?!

Then, she created mood boards to better understand the colors we could potentially work with...

…and last but not least, she sent over a selection of covers that we’d love to hear your opinion about. This is where you get to have some input! What do you think about the colors? What do you think about the different styles? Do you have a preference? Tell us what you think!

I cannot wait to read your comments! <3 

PS: I have updated the description of this project. Please share the link with the friends who you know might be interested. We have a long way to go! <3 

Help us choose a cover for My Creative (Side) Business.

Choosing a book cover is probably the hardest part of the design process. So just like last time, we did everything else first. 

But now, with the illustrations finalized, the manuscript almost done, and the Kickstarter goal almost reached with 8% to go (please, please, please tell your friends about the book!), it's time to focus on the cover. 

The colors aren't final just yet; however, we want to hear what you think about the different options. 

Also, if you have color suggestions, we'd love to hear about them too! We loved seeing so many of our wonderful Kickstarter supporters share a picture of their copy of #TYWBD on Instagram and Pinterest, and would once again love to give you a book worthy of a picture (or two). We know that we can only make such dream a reality if we have a bold cover. 

We'd love to hear what you think and which cover you like the most. Four opinions just aren't enough, so please join us in this extremely important moment and leave a comment under this posting or on Kickstarter. Please be awesome and help us get it right. We trust your instincts! 

Help us choose a cover for This Year Will Be Different

Choosing a book cover is probably the hardest part of the design process. So we did everything else first. But now, with the ISBN number ordered, the manuscript and illustrations finalized, and the Kickstarter goal almost reached (7% to go!), it's time to face the front (of the book, I mean). We would love to see the message of This Year Will Be Different spread across the Instagram streams and Pinterest boards of anyone thinking about making this year, well, different! That's a big dream, and we'll need a bold cover to make it a reality.

We figured four opinions weren't enough for such an important decision. We'd love to hear what you think and which cover you like the most. Please leave a comment under this posting and help us get it right.

Love, 

Monika, Ewelina, Diana and Diana Jean
