An Adventure of Discovery and Transformation
VERA JO BUSTOS owns and operates two businesses which encourage others to chase their dreams. She travels the country speaking, teaching, mentoring, and leading aspiring minds. www.mentalitysolutions.com | www.vjselite.com
At twenty-two, Vera Jo Bustos boxes her belongings and boards a plane to Greece to fulfill her dream as a professional basketball player. Captured through the lens of vulnerability – her dream crashes head-on into her reality. She lives the struggles of learning a foreign language, the obstacles of homesickness, loneliness, and the agony of constant defeat. Through her journey she realizes what life’s greatest gifts truly are. All moments are memorable. Few are dull. One is everlasting.

Book cover type
Something unique. Paperback 5.5x8.5 Matte Fonts should be easily read. Cover should be a happy theme. Reflective gold/silver to make the title pop. (suggestion not set on this) Photo of a Basketball should be included in the artwork. Greek City: Thessaloniki (if artist is looking to add anything of Greece). Maybe passport with Greek stamp. Not set on this - just an idea.
What to avoid
red/orange colors. No photos of a person/face on cover
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.
vera.jo 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!
Lizaa was able to translate my vague ideas about a concept into a visually appealing book cover, and was responsive to my feedback. I highly recommend her.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
