They Shall See God
Bryan Kaiser is the Founder and CEO of God's Eyes, a network of eye care clinics that serves the poorest people in the most remote places throughout the world. With over 44 years in the optical field, Bryan and his teams perform eye exams and correct vision free of charge, helping many people see clearly for the first time in their lives. Over the past 15 years, he has traveled over 1 million miles throughout 21 countries and distributed over 400,000 lenses and frames. Bryan has 3 grown children and 3 grandsons. He lives in Senoia, GA with his wife Jennifer.
The journey of getting called by God to go out into the mission field full time. Bryan started as a 24 year career optician and felt led one day in church to think about his legacy. Upon hearing "you're going to give eyeglasses to the world's poorest people" he began the journey of founding God's Eyes, a non-profit ministry. The book is full of stories along the way that he can share with supporters, donors, friends, and family.
Middle aged, American, Christians who want to learn more about Spirituality/Self-Help/Adventure. Looking forward to roping in people who "judge a book by its cover" to overcome the hurdle of getting them to read it.
Book cover type

Other color requirements
Would love to have a cover that inspires and encourages someone to pick up this book to wonder what's inside. The juxtaposition between the vastness or bigness of a concept of God and the dirt or garbage dumps of small villages is ideal. This author deserves a cover that can pull people in to give him a fighting chance for someone to discover what is inside the book, and there-in is the magic. It's a book for skeptics, for the cynical, for those who have been "dragging their feet" or not pursuing a calling that God has for them. Please incorporate the blues from the palette of the website. www.godseyes.com Looking forward to you getting creative and picked to win!
What to avoid
silhouette images, clip art, crosses, etc. No religious images that are cheesy. Avoid eastern images of eye in the sky, etc...as some imagery has connotations attached to it. Use the reference image as what not to do, as it was the demo cover the author did not like (the one with the orange "who.")
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.
drewkaiserfilm 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!
He went above and beyond, provided print book covers even though that wasn't required for the contest. And at the "handover" stage I asked him for one more color scheme just to see what it would look like and he provided me with several others
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
