Intense did a phenomenal job designing and continuing to improve their designs based off of feedback. I highly recommend working with this designer!
Great work! Just what I needed. Thank you!

Kristin was just great. She read the book, we talked it through, and discussed the key image drivers. She put forward a whole range of options, together we whittled it down to one and ultimately she created a wonderful cover. Can't recommend highly enough.
I loved working with rados777. He is extremely talented and was patient, and kind!

How Marian Fathers started their book cover journey

Fr. Chris Alar, MIC
Text determined later.
A book for those grieving because a loved one or friend committed suicide. Focused specifically on the mercy of God and church's teaching about suicide. And that there is hope for their soul to be saved.
Will be made available worldwide and probably in multiple languages. The book is for all adult ages and teens who have experienced loss of someone.
Book cover type
We will publish in house. (Added 6/14: responding to questions, we are Marian Press and we currently publish approximately 10 new books every year.)
5.5" x 8.5" x 1/2". Approx. 220 pages. Book is for those depressed from someone's suicide and looking for some relief and hope that their soul made it to heaven. Cover needs to reflect going from the darkness of despair to the light of hope and joy. Please stay focused on cover for shortlist. Back and spline design can occur after shortlist. Images attached are from another book we published which shows are preferred spine and back cover layout. (Added 6/14: Suggestions from author (not in any order)- lighthouse in distance; church with hope coming thorough door or window; dark forest with distant light or lantern(s); in cemetery with hope in near-distance; standing on shore or dock looking towards hope; passageway to hope; etc.) (Added 6/15: Author said he also likes the idea of light coming through a dark forest.)
