What's your vision?
Design Need: 8.5 x 11 print book cover design and back cover design. Book Title: Be: The Way of Rest A Holistic Recipe for Walking with Jesus Author: Jim Stern Art Direction: My client has asked for "simple, solid colors" and suggested "a peaceful shade of blue" for this book because it's about rest. This book/workbook is targeted toward Protestant Christians. Consider ways to make the concept of rest speak through the cover. Simpler is likely better, but show me why you're a graphic designer. Don't use images of Jesus or doves! Don't use landscape imagery (rivers, streams, mountains, sky, etc.) Use large text. I hate seeing book covers with text that's too small, especially when seen on Amazon as a thumbnail. I know this isn't much direction, but we are open to seeing your creative ideas. Back Cover Copy: Jesus promises, "Come to Me all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). Jesus was crucified and resurrected so that His followers could experience His rest today. How did He walk in rest? What did He believe and practice that produced rest in His soul? How can we walk in His rest today? Be: The Way of Rest, the first volume in the Be, Go, Make series, is a holistic recipe for walking in the promises of Jesus. The recipe will provide clarity and confidence for any follower of Jesus who is looking for His promised life. Author Bio (to be placed on Back Cover too): Jim Stern is a pastor, speaker, consultant, and author. He leads CORE, a disciple-making movement in Houston, Texas, and founded Trexo, a discipleship consulting ministry. He has written two other books, The OnRamp and FORTIFIED, and is currently writing Oneness: Seven Lessons on Marriage from the Garden of Eden (Due out late 2015). Jim lives in Houston, Texas, with his wife, Brooke, and his two kids, Collin and Claire. In addition to his love of authentically walking with Jesus and restoring people, Jim trains in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. You can visit his ministries at www.corehouston.org and www.trexo.org.
