justinlevine03 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Help me create a book cover portraying my 300 mile run. "Anything is Possible" was my mission.
Check out justinlevine03's Book cover contest…
LIMITLESS was created to create positivity and encourage the "I CAN DO ANYTHING" mindset. I truly believe that anything is possible when you set your mind to something. I ran 300 miles to prove this philosophy and this is my book to talk about the journey. My main target market will be runners, triathletes and endurance athletes but this book is for anyone looking to better themselves as human beings.
What's your vision?
I want a cover that will portray "endless potential", "limitless living", "reaching for your ultimate", "determination" etc. Excerpts from the book: "Determination is a strong trait. Many people give in to weakness because it’s comfortable. Determination was pushing me way out of my comfort zone. I had a goal to achieve, and my determination kept me going, no matter how uncomfortable I became. This is where I was. With much anguish, I suddenly straightened up my posture and stood up, took a deep breath, and made my way out of the RV. I knew I just needed to get moving. I started walking. Walking turned into a slow jog, and a slow jog turned into a pretty good paced run....." "My deep passion continues to challenge others to build a personal belief system, live life to the fullest, and inspire others along the way. I have high aspirations to help people reach their own ultimate way of life and to stretch their own limits. I live for others. I want to see others succeed. I want to see happiness on the faces of other people. I want people to achieve their goals. I want people to believe that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. This is my mission and I will spread this message the rest of my life. "
I am really looking for a cover that is eye catching, represents positive living, and protrays my mission. Running 300 miles was physically the hardest thing I have ever done in my life; I want to relay the message of why I did this to the people who decide to read this book. The cover should catch the attention so then they dive deeper into the book. The first picture is an "endless road" idea. The 2nd picture is a silhouette of me running up a hill. The 3rd picture depicts life's journey. The 4th picture is me running at mile 275. The 5th picture is me running in the Angeles Forest with my 2 brothers. The 6th picture is me hitting one of my biggest walls of the run; I am sitting with my buddy who decided to run 55 miles with me. The 7th picture is me running with my #1 pace runner in the Tehachapi mountains. *These are just some pictures of the run so designers can get a glimpse of the run. There can be so many ideas...but maybe it's me running with this "road" behind me and I have obstacles to battle but with constant determination, I find my way. But I am open to many ideas and designs. The cover does not necessarily have to be me running but since it is about running it should show some type of running depiction. More so, I want the "limitless living" , or "break your limitations" philosophy portrayed.

Armend designed the back cover and inside of our new book. He was fast, responsive and worked to very tight deadlines.
