triplewhammy got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design a simple book cover for a Christian parenting book!
Check out triplewhammy's Book cover contest…
With over a decade of experience ministering to church youth, Josh Niemi currently spends his time teaching children's Sunday school and discipling other men, in addition to raising his three children, Carter, Lucia, and Knox, alongside his wife Jill. Josh works full time as a control systems engineer in central Illinois.
There is much to be said for men and women who courageously evangelize on college campuses, in prisons, and near shopping centers. After all, the Bible indicates that disciples are primarily made by going out to meet lost people where they are. But make no mistake about it: if you're a parent, The Great Commission has come to you—in a bassinet, a booster seat, or a bunk-bed. While other parenting philosophies rely on "what seems to work" (i.e. pragmatism), "what we've always done" (i.e. traditionalism), or "what's right for us" (i.e. relativism), a better perspective is founded upon a biblical approach: teaching the full counsel of God and allowing Scripture to do its work in a child's heart. How do we accomplish this? We must examine the Bible's instructions for pastors, and then apply those principles in the home. In other words, just as the preacher must be committed to expository preaching, so too must the parent be committed to expository parenting.
Christian parents of children who are still in the home, as well as pastors looking to equip their congregations.
Book cover type
Looking for a serious (but not somber) tone. Probably want to play off of the major motifs in the book: teaching the Bible at home (perhaps a picture of a pulpit overlooking a couch, as opposed to the expected pulpit overlooking pews) or the theme of shepherding (mixing together a picture of the pages of a Bible with an open field filled with sheep/shepherd). Looking for serious mood, but sleek and sophisticated, not necessarily much of an agricultural look. I also have an associated website for this book, in which I will need further design services for website icons, logo, marketing, etc so the design should be portable in terms of being able to reuse the color schemes and images for branding purposes. The winner of this should also expect to have future work for those things as well, if desired.
What to avoid
No "cartoon" type of art. Prefer only real photographs. No photos of people/faces. Want to keep the colors simply (2-3 colors) so that I can reuse the same colors for branding and website design as well. I've attached other books in this genre that serve as what I would consider good and bad examples.
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.
triplewhammy 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
