I would like a set of ads in one or more of the following sizes: 728x90, 160x600, 336x280 to promote my book, Jumping into C++. [If you can provide all of the above sizes for the final deliverable, that would be ideal and provide an advantage to your design, but the ad *must* be in at *least* one of the above sizes.]
The current sales page for the book is here: http://www.cprogramming.com/c++book
And the Amazon page is here: http://www.amazon.com/Jumping-into-…0988927802
Note that I intend to run these as HOUSE ADS on my own site (cprogramming.com). The design should be optimized for working with cprogramming.com. The ad will probably link to http://www.cprogramming.com/c++book but I might have it link to the Amazon page instead.
I am looking for a nice, professional-looking ad, ideally with some tasteful animation. [The brief says Flash ad, and I prefer Flash, but I will consider awesome non-animated entries as well.] The ads should not have sound and should not use any "tricks" to get people to click on them. I am imagining a design that matches/goes with the design used on the book cover (similar colors and/or motifs), but that's not a requirement.
Other elements that you could (but don't have to) incorporate include user testimonials from the current sales or Amazon review pages, star ratings, whatever.
If you need any graphical elements, let me know. For right now, for example, if you need an image of the cover, you can just use the watermarked version and we can substitute later if the design is chosen. If you want to match the book cover font (you don't have to), it's DINPro.
