This is the second time I have used 99designs.com for a book cover. I truly enjoy the process of seeing the different covers develop. The designers have been exceptional to work with and make every effort to follow my guidelines. I would recommend this process anytime, and will use it again in the future when I need a design.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a professional cover design for a book about the Chinese Church History in Burma. Since the book is written in Chinese, it might be helpful that the designer knows some Chinese, but we are open to non-Chinese designers if they want to try using the Chinese title text we provide. However, a Christian or someone who are familiar with Christianity might be able to come up with a more relevant design.
The general idea of the front cover is to have a map of Burma at the center and a dove (representing the Holy Spirit) above it on the top-right corner with the light shining down from the dove. I have a crude design of this cover attached to show this concept.
The back cover is open to the designer's creativity, providing some room for introductory text.
We will provide an inDesign template. We would also like to have it back in inDesign file so that we can make necessary minor adjustments when the book is finalized. If the designer is willing to make minor adjustment when we finalize the book, we will appreciate it.
