Ringkasan Peraduan

I'm looking for a professional cover design for my amazon kindle ebook.

Book description:

A practical guide to use Google Tag Manager with Google Analytics in order to measure different aspects of a website.

The book consist on several recipes (tutorials) with step by step instructions on how to implement Google Tag Manager on your website, in order to track interactions, transactions, video plays, button's clicks, etc..

The target audience is digital marketers, digital analytics, website owners with mid-level technical knowledge.

The main message of the book is: you can track, measure and do a lot of awesome stuff with Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics, let me teach you how.

Book details:

Language: Spanish

Book Name: Google Analytics con Google Tag Manager
(English translation: Google Analytics with Google Tag Manager)

Tagline: Implementa, mide y diviértete.
English translation: implement, measure and have fun.

Tag line 2: Más de 60 implementaciones esenciales.
English translation: more than 60 essential implementations.

Tagline 3: Incluye acceso gratis a videotutoriales y contenidos exclusivos.
English translation: includes free access to video tutorials and exclusive content.

Author: Nico Roddz

What I expect:

A professional, best seller like, visual stunning cover.

Easy to read and comprehend: at first look it must be associated with the main topics of the book:

* Measurement
* Google Analytics
* Google Tag Manager
* Digital Analytics

It's a fun practical guide (opposite from full theory boring books), so it must visually communicate that with colors and visual elements.

What I would like to receive:

*High quality JPG file
*High High quality JPG file
*Source file

Thank you all!

Nico

PS: I know it's a lot of text for a book cover. Do you have suggestions or ideas? Should I use less text?

PS 2: here some details regarding amazon kindle cover format:

File Size – Less than 50 MB
Dimensions – Minimum of 1000 pixels on the longest side, ideally 2500 pixels on the longest side and height/width ratio of 1.6
Resolution – Not specified

From their Publishing Help section:

Kindle Direct Publishing currently accepts two types of files for cover images:

JPEG (JPEG / JPG)
TIFF (TIF / TIFF)

We apply additional compression to images when displaying them on the website. For best results, please upload your images with minimal compression.

Dimensions

Requirements for the size of your cover art must have an ideal height/width ratio of at least 8:5 (1.6), meaning:

• A minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side
• For best quality, your image should be 2500 pixels on the longest side

Important: We cannot accept any image larger than 10,000 pixels on the longest side.

Size

Your cover image must be less than 50MB. If the file type you are using supports compression, make sure to enable as little compression as possible, e.g. none for TIFF. Be sure to save your file with 72 dots per inch (dpi).

Color

Product images display on the Amazon website using the RGB (red, green, blue) color mode or profile. RGB is the color mode native to the web and many color screen displays, as these three colors displayed at varying levels of intensity create over 16 million colors. When saving and uploading your cover image file, save your file ONLY as RGB – not CMYK or sRGB- for the color profile. You can usually find this option in the File saving dialog of image manipulation programs such as Photoshop.

Some programs may also refer to RGB color as ‘True Color’ in some programs. If in doubt, try opening a JPG inside Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari. If a JPG opens fine inside a web browser, it’s most likely OK to use as a cover image.

      It has nothing to do with envy... just unprofessional. If you can't design and create your own artwork, why try and put a client's business at risk? I.E this book cover with the potential to be on display worldwide! And you are passing off another designers work as your own...shame

    Dear Nico,
    My entries have been reported. I uploaded them again, #23 and #24

    People attacted me because I bought photo that I used in design. They probably never designed book covers because that is the way book covers are made. You use photos that you buy on stock sites.

    I used is bought on Shutterstock:
    (http://www.shutterstock.com/pic.mhtml?id=183663350&src=id)

    Here is a permission for use of photo that clearly says that you can use it in a book cover design:
    http://www.shutterstock.com/blog/2010/05/ask-shutterstock-image-usage/

    And even if people who reported me don't accapt that from some for me not understandable reason, other designer also used photos from net:

    So, WHY are my designs reported?

      If the contest holder elect to use stock art, it is also in their responsibility to make sure that they legally own it.
      Regards,

      It’s the contest holder’s responsibility to buy any third-party elements, including stock art, so that they can own the licenses to those elements, and avoid possible licensing issues? or it's my responsibility?

    Dear Niko and other people, photo I used is bought on Shutterstock (http://www.shutterstock.com/pic.mhtml?id=183663350&src=id). Here is a permission for use of photo that clearly says that you can use it in a book cover design: http://www.shutterstock.com/blog/2010/05/ask-shutterstock-image-usage/

    For other contest entries (3/4 designers) I also find photos on internet:

    So, I'm absolutely clean, but thank you all for wanting to ruin this for me.

    Best wishes!
