How to be a Hit on YouTube magbook

I was originally offered this project but had to decline due to clashing schedules. Then the designer who was hired walked away from the project after only three days, and after designing only a portion of the first two chapters. The print schedule was pushed back to accommodate my schedule, which then allowed me to accept the job. Although the first designer created the initial visual style I was forced to change aspects of the design to incorporate a lot of design elements that he had not looked at.
