kellymstack got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create an inspiring cover to help people FLOURISH with Chronic Illness!
Check out kellymstack's Book cover contest…
The book is entitled "Flourishing with Chronic Illness" Subtitle: "A Mind, Body, Spirit Approach to Living Your Best Life with Any Diagnosis." "Flourishing with Chronic Illness is a book dedicated to helping people who are living with chronic conditions to see that they have the power to shape the experience of their own lives. In our society we have become overly dependent on the advice of doctors, but they only know part of the story. If you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic illness, you do not have to take on a typical passive-patient role. You have the power to shape your experience! Some things may help improve the course of an illness, others can ease symptoms. Even in the face of persistent symptoms and progressing illness, there are ways of shaping your experience that will allow you to live a deeply rich and fulfilling life. This work is an exploration of the many ways that you can make a difference in your own health and life, from healthy eating and exercise, to meditation, self-compassion, and beyond! Flourishing with Chronic Illness shares the same holistic, love-based approach as my general work, plus added insights from 7 years of exploring the many ways to live life to its fullest with chronic illness. It is based on my own journey of living with Multiple Sclerosis, and the many ways I’ve found both to improve my health AND to have a deep and gratifying experience of life even when faced with extreme difficulties. We can’t control everything, but there is so much we can do!"
What's your vision?
I want a cover design for the book! All that's *required* is the title "Flourishing with Chronic Illness" in somewhat large print, and the subtitle, "A Mind, Body, Spirit Approach to Living Your Best Life with Any Diagnosis," in somewhat smaller print, plus my name, "Kelly Stack." Everything else is pretty flexible and open to your creativity! I'm envisioning font that is scripty/calligraphy-type, yet CLEAR and easy to read. I'm thinking BOLD colors, but I want whatever is going to look best and appeal to people the most, so the colors are totally flexible. I'm also envisioning an image of something growing/blossoming/blooming...something representative of the feeling of the word "flourishing." Some key words and phrases for the feeling I want to get across to people: Flourish, thrive, possibility, potential, openness, enthusiasm, love, Divine, Spirit, open-hearted, embracing life, body-mind-spirit, holistic. I really like the cover of Derek Rydall's new book, "Emergence." I'm not saying it needs to look like this at all, but I like the powerful energy that it conveys. My website is www.kellystack.com, in case you want to get more of a feel for me and what I do.
Woohoo!!!! This is POWERFUL content and I know it's going to help a lot of people! I'm honored to be bringing it to life, and I'm excited to see what this worldwide network of creative geniuses can come up with for the cover!

Lena was wonderful to work with. She came up with several designs and was receptive and responsive to (and very patient with!) all of my input about changes. Lena has a great eye and the design we settled on is perfect for my book cover! Simple, yet bold and eye catching. She was also pleasant and positive in all of our exchanges in general. I highly recommend her!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
