Check out drgrex's Book cover contest…
A Thousand Pounds: Finding the Strength to Live and Love under the Weight of Unbearable Loss
Brianne Edwards is the founder of Lach’s Legacy, a South Dakota nonprofit working to support those who are grieving the unexpected loss of an infant. Her work has been featured by Her View From Home, Scary Mommy, and Praying Through Child Loss. Inspired by her personal experience of profound loss, she has found her ministry in accompanying other families in their grief, coming to the table with a Bachelor’s in Psychology, a Master’s degree as a Physician Assistant, and a Compassionate Bereavement Care Certification. She is the mother of 6, married to her high school sweetheart, nestled in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.
This is a memoir and grief companion. It is the author's story of the death of her son and her journey through the most unbearable grief to a life that once again felt living. It is a story of both intense sorrow and profound hope and love.
Adults, ages 20-50. Would expect more women readers, but also would like the cover to appeal to men.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
drgrex collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Castrum was very quick to respond to my questions and revision requests, and created a design that very much fit what I was looking for. I recommend Castrum for any design needs that you have!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
