Jesus was AMAZING! From right off the bat, his design was the closest to the inspiration covers I submitted and was an early front-runner. He was prompt with edits and happy to make as many little tweaks as I requested. He went above and beyond with the final files, as well, as he provided additional promotional graphics for me to use. I was very very happy with his work and would love to use him for future projects!
Was very communicative and very helpful throughout out the entire process! Will use again in the future!!! :)
Excellent design eye. Very responsive to comments. Made quick and appropriate adjustments. Seemed to intuit what the book was all about even though of course he had not read the whole manuscript, only a short design brief.
great job, thx so much.
How pjhe started their book cover journey
The Outcome Generation: How a New Generation of Technology Vendors Thrive through True Customer Success
Paul is an authority on customer success programs for technology vendors. He spent over five years designing and running customer success programs across the Asia Pacific region. He did so as the Asia Pacific head of an enterprise software (ERP) company leading 200 staff in nine countries supporting 800 customers. Realising his experience could help technology vendors, he left to complete his research and write this book. It’s his second, the first being ‘The Chief Capability Officer – Delivering the Capability to Execute’.
There's a new generation of technology vendors. They focus on business outcomes for their customers. They are crystal clear about the ongoing business results the top management of their customers would regard as success. They use an advanced customer success program to enable that success for their customers. And because they know how to enable success for their customers, these vendors thrive. The book shows how these vendors work. And provides a six-step process for implementing a new-generation customer success program.
CEO's, Sales VP's, Chief Operating Officers, Marketing VP's of Technology (software, services, Cloud etc) vendors. They'll typically be in their forties or fifties, with high income living in major cities across the world. These vendors all offer, or are moving to, subscription pricing. The power has now moved to customers. The vendors know if the customers don't feel successful, the vendor loses revenue. In that context, there are three problems to solve - how to protect and grow recurring revenue; how to differentiate from competitors: how to come up with ideas for new products and services that make sense to the customer.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
I need a cover that will catch the eye of senior executives in technology vendors and encourage them to read the back cover, then open the book and read the table of contents and introduction. My initial design includes a circle diagram (attached) which is central to the ideas in the book. I initially wanted this circle diagram on the front cover. But i'm open to alternatives if this diagram doesn't work. If it's used, all words should be capitalised.
The company colour scheme is black, grey, yellow and white, so those colours (and shades of them) should dominate.
The price of the book should show US$19.95
What to avoid
I'd prefer to avoid stock images. But if there was something exceptional, I'd consider it.
