Reply Emily Suess on 07.20.11 at 4:46 pm I voted for the first one, but 3 is nice too. The second just looks like a lot of other books I’ve seen. Not bad, but not different enough. Reply Phil Simon on 07.20.11 at 4:47 pm Thanks for the comments, all. Luke’s making some changes to a few of them based on our feedback. Reply Phil Simon on 07.21.11 at 5:41 pm Interesting results so far… http://img.skitch.com/20110721-g55p7cujs22ky1gh8yxnm31153.pdf Reply Adam Bullock on 07.20.11 at 5:15 pm I really love the 2nd cover. It’s striking in its design and completely stands out. Reply Stephen Putman on 07.20.11 at 11:04 pm I like #2 for its Dr. Strangelove feel…but I think your guy should use the Bacon Ipsum generator…http://lemoncurry.net/randomcurry/2011/06/non-meatless-friday/ Reply Phil Montero on 07.21.11 at 2:36 am Torn Phil – I like 1 and 2 a lot. Hard to pick which I like better. I think #1 is a bit more unique. Reply Ken Wakasa on 07.21.11 at 12:03 pm My order is, #3, #1, and #2. Woops most voted one is #2 at the moment I wrote this. I hardly chose #1 or #3 as they are very close to the best for me Reply Chickey on 07.21.11 at 6:10 pm I knew I saw number 2 before! http://www.amazon.com/Death-Competition-Leadership-Strategy-Ecosystems/dp/0887308503 Reply Matt Mansfield on 07.22.11 at 1:41 pm I like number 1 because it plays on the “Platform” idea – that something exists on top of which you can build. That seems important to me. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
