What's your vision?
Book Title: UNBEATEN Subtitle: A 40-Day Devotional Guide: Standing Strong Against Adversity Author: Sherwood Wilson Product: 200+ Page Softcover Book Dimensions: 6x9" Trim; .5" Spine The cover design must work both as a trade paperback and as a kindle ebook cover for distribution via amazon. In life, everyone experiences the testing of his or her resolve. Will those “tests” cause us to be strengthened or diminished by what life brings? And do we have the wherewithal to stand against the most trying times and still rise to the top? In this book of “power devotions” the author provides short inspirational snapshots of various adversarial conditions that demand a proper response, inspired by the author’s own life experience. These devotions are organized as a 40-day journey which challenges the reader to rise up from the ash heap of life holding the banner of victory while declaring—I AM still ‘UNBEATEN’. UNBEATEN is topically relevant to today’s relationship, career, and family pressures. Areas of focus or “power themes” including Goals & Aspirations, Submission & Obedience, Overcoming, Ministry Secrets, The Power of God, Matters of the Heart, Deliver Us From Evil, Exceeding Expectations, and more. At the end of each day’s devotion, the author directs a question to the reader prompting them to journal their own conclusion based on what they have read, in the section called “Introspection”. The devotion then concludes with a hands-on “Power Prayer” to help reinforce the principles presented. This book not only inspires but also challenges: What are the true limits of our capacity? Although this book is within the Christian genre, it’s intended for broad distribution and designed to have a wide appeal therefore reaching a variety of demographics. It’s about incorporating new ways of thinking into life which has the potential to inspire across multiple people groups. Design Notes: --Include Title, Subtitle and Author in design --Clean, professional design --No boxing gloves or obvious metaphors similar to that visual --Christian symbols or metaphors not necessarily important in design --Appealing to both males and females (gender-neutral colors and symbols) --Prefer sans serif fonts for headline, capitalized (UNBEATEN), but open to options… --Like idea of the “UN” portion of title having a different color/font treatment
This is a self-publishing project intended for introduction into the publishing world. The cover design must work both as a trade paperback and as a kindle ebook cover for distribution via amazon. The book will also be presented at conferences, meetings, professional and church groups and retail bookstores such as Barnes & Noble, BAM!, LifeWay and Family Christian Bookstores. It must have a strong shelf appeal that would cause a browsing shopper to pick it up and want to read more.

The job was to design a print and ebook book cover for a new popular psychology book. Tanja's first design impressed me so much - she had taken elements of what I had asked for in the brief but added twists and made it so much more beautiful and 'right' for the book than I'd imagined. She has been incredibly responsive to feedback and ideas and the final design is absolutely perfect. Thanks so much Tanja!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
