Jason Hatley got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design the cover for nationally-known author Nelson Searcy's 13th book: Next Step for Your Journey
Check out Jason Hatley's Book cover contest…
The Journey is a casual, contemporary church with locations in NYC, San Francisco, and South Florida. We are passionate about loving God and loving people, all while being just as relevant as today's NY Times. Sunday services feature practical messages, rock'n roll music, media and the arts. The church is casual, but we are looking for a professional and creative design for a new book we are publishing.
What's your vision?
We are looking for a professional, modern design for a book we are publishing called "The Next Step for Your Journey". This book is designed to help those who are new their faith in Christ understand the important next steps to take to build upon their newfound faith. The design should convey the idea of growth and forward movement. I see the cover with a blue background. I don't see this as a "walk on the beach" type design. I would rather it have a masculine or neutral feel, rather than feminine. I also don't see it as a stepping stones / nature design. I'd prefer something more modern with bold type faces.
The dimensions of the total cover and spine should be: 11.377" w x 8.25" h. The spine is .877" and the front and back covers are 5.25" x 8.25". I have attached the previous cover for this book. To be clear: I do NOT want a recreation of this cover. I am looking for something more modern and professional. But I do include it here to that you can have access to see how the layout of the back has been done previously. I have also attached an updated picture of the author, and logo for the back cover. Here is the copy for the front cover: THE NEXT STEP FOR YOUR JOURNEY Nelson Searcy Here is the copy for the spine: THE NEXT STEP FOR YOUR JOURNEY Nelson Searcy Here is the copy for the back cover: God wants you to have a meaningful life in relationship with Him through His son, Jesus. But He doesn’t force that desire on you. He gives you a choice... On your own, there’s nothing you can do to bring yourself into a right relationship with God. Good works won’t do it. Religion won’t do it. Morality won’t do it. Neither will money nor philosophy nor knowledge nor science. This book is designed to get you started on your journey, with eight steps that will help you with: • Studying Your Bible • Praying to God • Discovering Meaningful Friendships • Experiencing Baptism • Living a Life of Worship • Sharing Your Faith • Serving • Forgiving Others God says in the Bible that anyone who belongs to Jesus has become a new person...a new life has begun! If you asked Jesus to forgive you of your sins and come into your life, then according to God Himself, you’re a new creation. As of right now, real life starts. Welcome to the ultimate journey! NELSON SEARCY is the Founding and Lead Pastor of The Journey Church in Boca Raton, FL. He is the author of over 12 books, including "The Greatness Principle" and "The Generosity Ladder". He and his family live in Boca Raton. [In a box at the bottom - see attached example] This free copy is provided for you by The Journey Church. For more information, visit www.BocaJourney.com
