Trexo is a Christian ministry that equips disciples to make disciples through publishing books, speaking engagements, and one-on-one discipleship and consulting.
What's your vision?
The full title of the book is: FORTIFIED: From Fear, Anxiety, and Bondage to Freedom and Power in Jesus Include this description and bio on the back cover: FORTIFIED uses God's restoration of the city of Jerusalem as a metaphor for how He restores us. In FORTIFIED you will learn the three enemies that attack the city of your life, the four places they attack, and how God will set you free. This is a simple, powerful tool you can use for yourself and as you go to help others walk in God's promised freedom. Jim Stern is a pastor, speaker, consultant, and author. He leads CORE, a disciple-making movement in Houston, Texas, and founded Trexo, a discipleship consulting ministry. He has written two other books, The On Ramp and Be: The Way of Rest, and is currently writing Oneness: Seven Lessons on Marriage from the Garden of Eden. Jim lives in Houston, Texas, with his wife, Brooke, and his two kids, Collin and Claire. In addition to his love of authentically walking with Jesus and restoring people, Jim trains in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Visit his ministries at Corehouston.org and Trexo.org. What Not to Do: An original cover for this project used the image of a breaking chain as a metaphor for the freedom that can be found by following the words within the book. However, we want to move away from such visual cliches. What We'd Like to See: Rather, we'd like to see submissions that speak to notions of: • resolution • sturdiness • depth • durability The book uses simple illustrations depicting the walls of Jerusalem, which we've attached, so ancient walls could also be incorporated into the cover (but DON'T use the attached illustration on the cover). We are not inclined toward any particular color scheme or font choices.
I am running this contest on behalf of my client. We will do our best to communicate within a 48-hour window when questions arise.

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.
blake.atw 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!
The image on the cover captured the concept of the book perfectly and he provided prompt correspondence with some minor revisions and requests. I look forward to continue working with Arrowdesigns for this project and hope to work with Arrowdesigns again in the future!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
