This logo/identity design for Calvary Crossroads was created with the churches’ core values in view. The final design concept chosen for the identity was in keeping with the clean and simple style requested by the client, while maintaining an overall fit with traditional/conservative nature of the congregation. It was intentional to make the primary emphasis on the word “Crossroads”, while the word “Calvary” was to be secondary in prominence.
The mission of the Kids Against Hunger national network is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world. I recently re-designed the promotional brochure for Kids Against Hunger – Fort Wayne. The old brochure was in desperate need of updating. Below are images of the outside and inside of the newly designed 8.5″ x 11″ tri-fold brochure.
I was recently contacted by a missionary who requested a Spanish version of the Bible Infographic. I provided him with a high-resolution file to have posters printed to give away to a local church and elementary school during an upcoming mission trip. The posters will be given away primarily to children who will appreciate the vibrant color scheme more so than the black and white version. Dios les bendiga!
The design criteria for this logo project was simple, clean, and modern. A stylized maple leaf was created for the icon in keeping with the location of the church in Michigan. The previous church logo was outdated in it’s appearance and needed to be updated. Signage, website, and other visual identity pieces will soon be created and a fresh logo was needed that could fit well into a variety of contexts. Overall, the client was very pleased with the concept and execution of the new identity.
This is a pair of 18″ x 24″ poster design concept ideas. The Trihagion poster literally means “Thrice Holy” and is mentioned in scripture on two occasions: First in Isaiah 6:3 and then again in Revelation 4:8. The second poster in the pair was inspired by the 1 Corinthians 13 “Love Chapter”.
SHIFT is a new youth ministry beginning this fall at Grace Gathering. As with any new program, it needed a visual identity/logo and the result was a playful design that literally “shifts”. For example, the face of the word can start in the upper-most right corner and reach back to the lower-left corner, or the face can start at the lower-left corner and reach back to the upper-right corner. Once you’ve seen it both ways, the logo visually jumps back and forth, or shifts, when you look at it. The announcement slide design is shown below.
The Inspired Series silk screen print breaks away from the traditional word cloud layout while maintaining the same content as the original word cloud of the Bible. The source text was the 1984 New International Version of the Bible, and most common words and all numbers were removed. The total number of words shown in the poster is 148. This 18″ x 24″ poster is printed on thick 100# stock (your choice of either White or Natural). A limited quantity of 25/White & 25/Natural are now available at www.66clouds.com.
This logo was created for a small start-up business specializing in building custom birdhouses.
A small 2″ stamp was made with the phone number for stamping on all the finished birdhouses.
This modern and fun identity design was recently created for Glenda Yoder Photography. The logo is a cleaned up and stylized version of Glenda’s signature. A logo, business card, and website were designed.
This Bible Infographic highlights the statistical evidence that the Bible is divinely inspired by God. Unless God was intimately involved, the odds seem impossible that any book could ever be written over a period of about 1600 years, across 3 continents, by over 40 authors, in 3 different languages, and yet maintain one harmonious, overarching theme: The glory of God in the salvation of humankind. Truly amazing! The divine origin of the Bible is communicated by the Apostle Peter as well when he says:
Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. -2 Peter 1:20-21
It’s always exciting to design a new visual identity for an up and coming small business. And working on the logo for Pie Squared was especially sweet. The client wanted something simple, fun and non-traditional when it comes to the world of pastries. So we arrived at a modern, eye-catching style that would translate well into packaging labels and point-of-purchase display graphics. The logo can also be rendered in an unlimited variety of color combination’s that correspond with the different pastry flavors being offered.
Here’s a look at the 3″ x 3″ business card that was created for the new business. Bon appétit!
Blackhawk and Lakewood Park Christian Schools will be hosting a worship concert/fundraiser event in October to support the vision of using 1to1 technology in their schools. I was brought in to create the logo , poster, direct-mail postcard, pledge card, and web graphics for the event. The photograph of the girl holding the iPad was taken by Terri Christner.
Inspired by the Apostle John’s first epistle, the design is screen-printed on heavy woven 100% cotton fabric. It measures 14.5″ wide x 15″ tall with a 3″ bottom gusset and sports 22″ black handles. Sure, it’s always more blessed to give than recieve, but we won’t tell anyone if you decide to keep one for yourself as well. You can find them at www.66clouds.com.
This was the first time I created an ambigram-style logo for a project. “An Ambigram is a typographical design or art form that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, or orientation. The words readable in the other viewpoint, direction or orientation may be the same or different from the original words.” I thought an ambigram would serve as an appropriate solution for a business offering psychological counseling services. By definition, the word “vista” refers to a distant view, or an extensive mental view (as over a stretch of time or a series of events). The ambigram offers clarity from multiple directions and a greater depth of meaning. Two additional logo design concepts with accompanying icons are shown as well.
Letterhead, business card w/ envelope, 5″ x 7″ note card w/ envelope, and a custom note pad were created for The Restoration Road. The stationery suite was offset printed on Mohawk Via Portfolio’s Light Gray Linen. The note card was printed on 10 pt. Tango C1S.
I created this propaganda-style design for a friend of mine who is putting together a series of T-shirts around the theme Love is the Resistance. It’s a radical teaching communicated in passages like Romans 12:14-21.
