I want to commend this designer on the outstanding work he did for me. This was my first time using 99Design, and I was skeptical about the skills and responsiveness of contestants. I was amazed at this designer's ability to generate the image I wanted, and follow my string of comments & requests. I am really delighted with the results and would unhesitatingly use this service again.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Book Jacket: Design for a spiritual book for women 18 and older searching for self-discovery and oneness with God. I would like the design to incorporate the title into a labyrinth with the word “Wholeness” possibly at the center. Research images of labyrinth’s circular shape and properties but can do a creative interpretation (possibly the Tree of Life going off the cover of the book?)
Included an example of a circular labyrinth and the tree of life.
Back cover blurb: Although raised with a strong, Christian foundation, Kristine Ward veered far off that path as she came of age in the 1970s. She fully embraced the loose sexual morals and illegal drug use that was pervasive in the post Viet Nam, pre-AIDS era. Through her story, she creates a mentoring dialogue between young and middle-aged women because we all flounder as we seek a seemingly-illusive wholeness. Kristine is now a devout Christian but had her inter-doctrinal eyes opened in a World Religions class. She was surprised by the parallels among the various polytheistic, monistic, and monotheistic religions and was captivated by the analogous themes of compassion, love, and forgiveness in their sacred scriptures. She became aware of the beauty in all faiths and found a tolerance she did not formerly possess. She believes we can stay true to our beliefs without disparaging another’s. Our common, human condition should unite us more than our differences divide.
Title: Zigzagged Path to Wholeness

About the Author: Kristine Ward is a full time wife, mother, and college student who believes we can all experience God-led renewal and reinvention if we listen for the still, small voice within us. She struggles to tune out the world's voice in order to have a meaningful, two-way exchange with our personal God and desires to mentor others to grow in communion with God.
