We are putting together a medical directory for Dubai, and we need a graphic artist / designer to design our book cover and back. We are looking for someone with extensive experience in the publishing and graphic design industry, so please submit at least 3 similar designs you have done in the past (not necessarily book covers, but graphics work for print). Even better is the applicant who also submits a mockup of their idea, which of course can be in very rough or sketch format. The information that should, at a minimum, be on the cover includes:
Title: The Medical Directory of Dubai
Published by: Infobahn Consultancy, LLC
Website: [url removed, login to view]
Special text (in no particular order):
- Coupons attached worth over 10,000 dirhams
- A comprehensive guide to Dubai's entire healthcare industry
- Includes phone and fax numbers, location information, services provided, and insurance accepted
- The one phone directory every family MUST have!
- Printed twice yearly
- Fall edition
- Over 30,000 in circulation!
- Over 5000 listings!
The book will be on glossy medium thickness paper, approximately half the size of A4, with tabs on the edges for each category (hospitals, dentists, chiropractors, etc.). If you take an A4 size paper in landscape orientation, and fold it from left to right, that is the sizing. We may up the size to full A4, but at this point it is not likely.
The cover should be very elegant, upscale, business-minded (as opposed to pleasure/travel/leisure minded) and depict the city of Dubai without using all the cliched pictures that we see everywhere. Maybe a picture is not necessary, but instead use a graphic of some sort (e.g. sketch of the city skyline or of a famous structure, etc.)...this is up to the designer.
I am happy to pay for quality, so please do not be afraid to bid higher if you are well qualified and experienced and/or have a great idea. Price is not our first concern - product originality, beauty, and quality is.
Mockups should be in jpg or png format.
We will leave this listing up for 1 week, then expect the work to be done within 2 weeks of contract award, including any back and forth between us discussing prototypes, changes, etc.
There is much more work to be done for this and other books we are putting together, so the winner will get first rights to that future work.
Thanks everyone, have a great day!
