We want a cover page designed for an upcoming non-fiction book.
It is a science book that discusses the scientific inadequacies of evolution, or the illogical concept that life evolved from some unicellular life.
Our concept for the cover design is to have at the top of the cover have a symbolic depiction of the human brain's grooves and knots. If you are going to use the human brain as a shape, note that it should be prominent and dominating in the cover design. The below half of the cover, depiction of trees (plant kingdom) and in that an animal like a bird or insect somewhere, just as symbolic.
We are open to creative suggestions.
We are trying to communicate the message that the human brain is the most dominant among of the species. So to keep the focus of the cover design on it, is very important. and less focus should be placed on showing the trees and animals.
Note that the cover design must place an emphasis and keep a dominating and main focus of the cover on the human brain.
I have attached some rough sketches to convey the concept that I have in mind.
