Book Cover: Along The Way by Stosh D. Walsh

  • What They Do: TEDx speaker, teacher, business owner, and author Stosh Walsh wrote this book, and we were honored to create its cover.

Scope Of Work

Stosh D. Walsh is a longtime friend from Dan’s college days at Judson University. As Stosh emerges as an engaging speaker and author, he realized early on that his work would benefit from having a distinct branding approach. Stosh hired Brand Shepherd to create a book cover for his book, “Along The Way: Leadership Stories From Everyday Life.” We presented 3 design options, each very different from each other, and Stosh chose this one to move ahead with. A simple 1-color execution is visually striking, captures Stosh’s communication style, and is cost-effective to produce.

“I partnered with [Brand Shepherd] to envision and design the cover of my first book. Throughout the process, Brand Shepherd was communicative, innovative, organized and fast. They responded to questions within hours in spite of other work and demands on his time, and though the size of my project was comparatively small, afforded me a responsiveness and attention most would reserve for their larger clients. They accepted the input I offered, and added ideas and creativity to deliver a finished product that was better than I had envisioned or hoped. In addition, their keeping abreast of trends and technology gave me insight into things I could be doing to improve my brand, and even incorporated one into the project I would never have known about without their guidance. Top marks.” – Stosh Walsh
