Book cover design for the biography: Main title Donald A. McGavran Subtitle: A Biography of the Twentieth Century’s Premier Missiologist By Dr. Gary L. McIntosh Foreword by Nelson Searcy Have a main image of the subject Donald McGavran (see attachment "1980s McGavran portrait color.jpg"). It is an older color photo – no need for color correction or image clean-up at this time – that will be done later. Want this image to be the focus with a strong type face for the Main Title. See cover samples below. Need to see some color and font variations on the typeface that complement the image. Explore both serif and sans serif fonts. Cover samples to model: These are the two main ones we would like to model. For this style of cover, would want the subject, Donald McGavran, to be cut out from the background and placed on white. Try in color and black and white versions: Reagan Cover - http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41zoGLt27ML.jpg Einstein Cover – http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51ms8Z2dU1L.jpg Other cover examples we like: Wagner Cover: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81U7sFENabL._SL1500_.jpg Walt Disney cover: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/91lILS6cjGL._SL1500_.jpg Book size is 6” w x 9” h with an approx. .995” spine. Most likely will be a softcover book. This book should not be modeled after any previous books by Gary McIntosh or Nelson Searcy. The subject, Donald McGavran, was the founder of the modern-day church growth movement as well as a missionary, author and professor.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
sandra t1 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
The image on the cover captured the concept of the book perfectly and he provided prompt correspondence with some minor revisions and requests. I look forward to continue working with Arrowdesigns for this project and hope to work with Arrowdesigns again in the future!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
