Since 66clouds.com was first launched several year ago, many churches and pastors have found the word cloud images useful as sermon illustrations and teaching series graphics. I am always blessed and encouraged when the images are used in this way. Grace Fellowship Church in Toronto is a recent example of how a word cloud image can be employed as a visual identity for a teaching series.

I recently put together graphics for two different series of teachings coming up at Grace Gathering. The first one is a two-part series called Hospitality: How to Welcome Others and will begin on Sunday, September 26th. I thought the image of a golden door worked well to represent the rich blessings of hospitality. “…remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.” -Acts 20:35
A second teaching series will begin on October 1oth and is called Come and Follow Me: Engaging Jesus Through Luke’s Gospel.
“Most people in the world are on some type of spiritual journey.” Seeking God: An Investigative Journey is a 6 session study designed to help people evaluate and discover where they are at on their spiritual journey. This study has been a central tool used by Grace Gathering for many years and has undergone quite a few revisions. The latest revision is a 6″ x 9″, 100 page book format. I really enjoyed working on this project and creating the overall design and layout for the study.
Above are some of the series of icons and illustrations I created to help the reader navigate through the study.
If you would like more information about this study, or would like to purchase a copy, please contact the Grace Gathering church office directly.
I recently finished an identity design project for a church stewardship campaign called Release: Setting the Church Free. The image above shows a few of the logo revisions that occurred along the way. The final logo is on the bottom, right. The dove is symbolic of the Holy Spirit/Church being “released” into the nations.
The Letterhead and envelopes were printed first. The abstract watercolor background behind the logo is symbolic of the earth’s geography, but not intended to be exact. The idea was to present a global, rather than local release of the church. The sheet was flooded with ink, leaving only white paper for the dove showing through, which created a nice effect. They were printed 4 Color Process on 80 lb. Finch Fine Text, Bright White.
A 17 1/4″ wide x 22 1/2″ tall (unfolded) Brochure/Poster was also created for the campaign. It was folded like a newspaper page and placed in 9″ wide x 12″ tall, 6 mil plastic recloseable bags. This solution not only looked good, allowing the photos to be seen through the bag, but also fit well with the Release theme and saved quite a bit of money by not printing a traditional pocket folder to hold all of the additional campaign literature, DVD, etc…
Here’s the unfolded outside/poster.
And the unfolded inside/brochure.
I recently put together this identity for an upcoming teaching series at Grace Gathering. I experimented with a couple of different ideas and ultimately decided to focus on the solution, which is rest, instead of the problem, which is being weary. The series is about gaining refreshment and perspective by applying biblical truth to one’s life.
The final logo was used in Black and White. Here’s how it looks with some color applied to it.
I was asked to create an identity/web design for a Leadership Weekend event coming up in January 2010. The theme for the weekend is moving communities toward mission, so I decided to focus on the visual aspects of light and movement to create the design. I contacted a friend of mine who is an amazing photographer and requested a photo that would capture what I was looking for. He supplied the fantastic photo above.
Here is what the photo looked like after a bit of cropping and transforming. The goal was to communicate light and movement in an abstract sort of way.
And this is a screenshot of the final homepage from leadershipweekend.org. I provided the final design elements to the church that is holding the event and one of their staff members put the actual site together.
