You did a fantastic job capturing the message I wanted to portray with the book. I hope we work together again in the future.
What a great experience. Flexible, creative, and understanding.
Responsive, intuitive, excellent to work with. I'm so grateful for Poppins work on my book cover. Right from the first concept, she seemed to "get" this project and was relentless in getting the design exactly right. A pleasure to work with throughout. I can't highly recommend her enough. Thank you!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We do conferences and provide materials and counseling to those dealing with sexual and relational issues from a Christ-centered perspective. The target audience of the book is thoughtful, evangelical Christians who care about biblical love, biblical theology and intimacy with God.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The book is titled "Learning Love" and the subtitle is "What every Christ-follower is really meant for". I want my name "Russell Willingham" on the cover but not too prominent. I need a book cover that appeals to the relational and emotional part of the soul but is not only geared toward women. It must be geared toward men as well. A cover that points to Christ but no crosses, rainbows or religious symbols. It must be evocative, edgy, fierce and tender. Something showing intimacy with God and/or each other. Biblical imagery is fine as long as it doesn't look "religious". The first attachment shows examples of possible front cover art. The first is a photo of Jesus hugging a man. And the second is artwork of a woman anointing Jesus' feet and wiping them with her hair. These are ideas to spark your creativity.
Fresh colors and designs are welcomed. The photos I sent are copyrighted (they are only for ideas). Please use original photos or artwork on the cover (or get the rights to them please).
I added print for the back cover on Saturday, June 14 at 10:00 pm PT. This needs to be incorporated for all designers past and present! Thank you.
