    Hi everyone. Thank you very much for your work thus far...I think that the designs you are submitting are wonderful! For the front cover, I'd like to see a few more designs with graphics similar to Thinkstock Photo IDs 180093093 and 180206412. As I mentioned below, I am also interested in seeing submissions that match other popular authors like Daniel Pink, Malcolm Gladwell, and Jim Collins. The simplicity of their book covers is appealing to me as well.

    Thank you designers! A few thoughts:
    - I like the font and the way it is laid out on design #2
    - the back cover of design #13 is very good
    - the graphic/photo on design #12 is great, but I think we can remove the person looking out the window

    Designers...for the front cover and its graphic, I am also not opposed to doing something a little more subtle...similar to Daniel Pink's books "Drive" or "To Sell is Human". I also like the covers of Malcolm Gladwell's books "Outliers" and "The Tipping Point" and Jim Collins' Good to Great.

    Again, great work thus far and thank you!

    Great work so far! Thank you so much. The dark color and simplicity of the front cover of design #2 is very close to what I am looking for. The maze graphic doesn't speak business strategy to me as much as the front cover of design #4. The back cover of design #4 is very close to what I envisioned...I'd just like the Seaver Consulting logo to be the blue and orange version. The front cover of design #4 is nice because it speaks business strategy concepts, but I'd like it if the human is removed and a darker version of the strategy drawing is used (similar to the color in design #2).
