I really loved the way that the design looked and the font. She really captured the colors and brightness that I was looking for, and she followed my instructions very well. She's a very talented designer.
I couldn't have been more pleased with how Seventy7Designs brought the entire project to completion, according to the specs of our self-publisher. Thank you for your professional approach from beginning to end!
Excellent experience! She understood exactly what I wanted. Was very prompt making requested changes. Very seamless experience. I can see why she's won so many contests. Very creative and professional. 5 stars --- highly recommend this designer.
good job did very good work and a good job
How True Potential started their book cover journey
Who are you known as?
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We're a small publisher of Christian books. Protestant, sometimes our topics are a little edgier than standard Christian bookstore fare, sometimes not. We sell a lot via Amazon and other Internet sales channels, not so much (but some) through Christian and other bookstores.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We're looking for a book cover for a re-release of a book previously titled "God is in a Good Mood" We believe the previous title, cover (attached) and interior layout contributed to this book's lack of success in the first publication.
New title is "Extraordinary Gospel: Experiencing the Goodness of God".
The topic is on the idea of grace, that we don't have to earn God's favor, that He bestows it on us, not because of what we do, but because of what His Son has already done.
Cover concepts have ranged from the idea of a happy God (a God that is not angry), to a person immersed in a rain shower (i.e. immersed in God's goodness, to an illustration of how Christ's sacrifice equals God's love for us. Attached are the original cover, a cover comp we did in house that may convey the idea but the art and text are commingled to the point that the message gets jumbled, a few other graphic ideas and the back cover blurb and author bio.
We've also kicked around the idea of a bit of a 'grunge' theme.
