This is a 3 option poll with 100 respondents targeting Books Read Per Month
(1 3, 4+). A sample of responses:
- I chose A as # 1 because I think the blue color of the title and center button is more pleasing and vivid. It's also the only one with the small print on the bottom instead of the top, which I believe makes the cover appear more balanced. I chose B as # 2 because I like the that design (as with A) has the reboot button in the center, but I'm not really a fan of the style of this button because I think the attached hardware is a bit unnecessary and 'rough'. It's just not as attractive as the button in Option A. Also the small print is on the top here, and it's distracting to the cover as a whole, when there is that much small print on top (a smaller blurb would be better if it really needed to be on top). I chose Option C last because, although it isn't necessarily a bad design, the button placement in the sideways title makes it a bit more difficult to read. I would go for that sort of button placement with an upright title, but would remove it if you must keep the title sideways.
- The 'blue button' is apropos for a computer reboot, which is more analogical than the 'red button' emergency reboot. While one's self image could be in a dangerous position, I would think a more positive, peaceful basic reboot would be more appealing to someone wanted to tell themselves new stories to redefine who they are. For that reason, I would go with the blue butt (A). C gets your attention as a cover more because of the bright coloration. I like C the least--I just don't think the red button evokes a positive, peaceful transition to a new frame of life. Rebooting suggests a computer button, not an emergency button that you mash in haste.
