I just found out that the Step into the Jordan logo design has been selected for inclusion in the new LogoLounge Master Library edition called Shapes and Symbols.
The Master Library series contains logo design work from creatives around the world and is based on the following categories:
• Initials & Crests
• Animals, Birds and Mythology
• Shapes and Symbols
• Nature and Food
• Arts and Culture (including transportation, sports and architecture)
The Maranatha Brand logo I created was published in the Initials & Crests edition earlier this year. The Step into the Jordan design will appear in the Shapes and Symbols book that will be published in the next year.
The Step into the Jordan logo is based on the biblical account of Joshua leading the Israelites across the Jordan river and into the promised land after God miraculously stopped the water from flowing.
Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, the water from upstream stopped flowing.
The equilateral triangle symbol in the center of the water not only visually divides the water, but is also historically symbolic for God. In Christian symbolism it specifically stands for the Holy Trinity.
The goal of the Step into the Jordan program is to provide Christian based recovery resources through a wide variety of online curriculum. Above is a web design layout that was presented to the client showing the logo being used in context.
