original submission and comments here]
This is a resubmission for A Way Out. I’ve taken some feedback and came up with this as a possible final product. I’d just need to purchase the flower image so please ignore the watermarks. This memoir is about overcoming depression and anxiety, and finding happiness on the other side. The cover is meant to show hope, that beyond the tears and storms in my mind, it’s possible for recovery and your life can turn into something beautiful.
You’ve done a great job of integrating the comments given with the original submission.
The biggest thing that sticks out to me is that the waterdrop is now off-center, but not so much off-center that it appears intentional. I would bring the drop back to the center; there’s still enough of the face showing on its left to make the flower silhouette recognizable. In fact, I’d make the drop bigger — with the title enclosed in the drop, the whole title has gotten a little smaller and harder to read since the last version; I’d make the drop large enough to stretch from top to bottom across that empty space, then play with exactly where the head silhouette should be behind it.
The other thing that strikes me is that having “A MEMOIR OF CONQUERING” in larger type to fill the line makes it seem louder or more important than the next line, which it isn’t. I’d make the type in the first line the same size as the second line, and not worry about it extending side to side.
Any other comments?
