I'm looking for a skilled illustrator to custom-design a small image for me, to use on the cover and interior design of my upcoming book, 'Your Happiness Toolkit: 16 Strategies for Overcoming Depression, and Building a Joyful, Fulfilling Life.'
I have a cover designer, he's developed a nice design for the book, but we hoped to incorporate the image of a toolkit, to help illustrate the cover concept in the title. We've tried incorporating a number of stock images (including the 3 included here) but nothing looks right, or matches the quality or color of the rest of the design. So the cover designer suggested I seek an illustrator to create a quality custom image for the project.
Ideally, we'd want to use this image on the front cover, spine, and interior of the book, as well as on my newsletters, websites, merchandise, t-shirts, etc. As the book is the first of an intended series of books, we also hope to develop a design that could be adapted for use in later books, as part of a branded series (eg, 'Your Relationship Toolkit,' 'Your Anti-Anxiety Toolkit', 'Your Retirement Toolkit' etc.)
I envision this image as consisting of an outline form, suggesting the image of a toolbox. It should be simple enough to remain visible as a small element on a thumbnail image of the full cover on Amazon, but robust enough to stand on its own as a fleuron in the book's interior design, and later (sized larger) on websites, newsletters, T-shirts, etc.
In its current usage on the book cover, this is a tiny image, but has enormous significance. Looking for the right person to capture the message and spirit of this book, to incorporate into the cover design, and to use independently in a range of other contexts, to instantly help communicate the idea of a 'Happiness Toolkit' that individuals can customize and use to overcome depression and build joy in life.
