100 Minutes with God
AUTHOR: Susan Grant
PROJECT: Book Cover Design (Paperback•eBook)
Since this is a devotion book for those who want to deepen their relationship with God in the middle of their hectic lives, the author requested a design that could capture the essence of time and of spiritual reflection.
For that, I included the image of a pocket watch, similar to the one that was being used as a chapter symbol in the interior of the book. This way there is always a consistent theme and imagery in the entire book (in the inner and outer zones).
I also wanted to represent the “start of a new day”, not only in a sense of time but also as a new opportunity to be with God, that can be achieved despite the busy life.
The rising sun was a good way to transmit that message and also to give it that “eternal” sense (the sun rises everyday… no matter what). It also helps to give a very positive feeling to the entire design, as being a joyful invitation to join in these daily 100 Minutes of reflection.
