Design cookbook cover and interior layout

Closed - This job posting has been filled.

Job Description

This project involves designing the art and layout for a new cookbook that features raw recipes (no cooking). There are about 100 recipes. We need someone who can develop the layout and graphics for the covers (front and back) as well as develop a layout template for the interior pages (table of contents, acknowledgement page, preface, recipe pages, index).

The software we want used for this is Adobe InDesign. We have access to Creative Suite 5 on a Mac platform.

We will supply samples of about 3 or 4 recipes along with pictures to help with the layout of the pages. Once we have a template that we can use, our own internal staff will use that template to do the rest of the work populating the pages with content.

The book will be printed in short run quantities, so we are looking at binding options, probably going with a spiral binding so the book can open and lay flat to any page.

The layout should also work for an ebook in various formats such as PDF and possibly others for distribution via Amazon or Apple.

I'm going to post a budget of $400. I am not sure if this is realistic, I guess I will find out when the bids come in. Please feel free to bid less or more. My decision will not be based on price alone. The author does have a limited budget and so this is why I have selected this as a maximum and to see what kind of talent I can attract for this project for a moderate price.
