Invite cards for a sermon series on marriage. Printed on 16 pt business cards, with gold foil, spot gloss, and a silk finish. They wanted something small like a business card to hand out in the community. The look and feel were to be classy, and reminiscent of a wedding invitation.

There Must Be More Than This

There Must Be More Than This

Playing with the idea of “floating text” today. Here’s my first shot at it. Kinda fun…

There Must Be More Than This

Always wanted to do this. I like how on shows like “Fringe” the title text is always floating in the shot as if it’s a physical object. The drop shadow on this isn’t quite right yet, but I think I’m good with it for now. Love you thoughts! Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

 

LIT Youth Ministry contact card

lit-contact_card_print

 

Just a simple contact card for LIT Youth Ministries.

Kids are more likely to grab and fill out a card if it looks cool. So we set this up to try and increase our contact follow up. It totally worked. We had a lot more people turn this in than the previous one. (Probably had nothing to do with also giving out a candy bar when they returned it, right?)

 

Spotlight: Ghost (the Holy Spirit)

PFB: Ghost - final

CLIENT: Pomona First Baptist Church

This graphic was for their “Flood” college ministry. They did a series on the Holy Spirit (Ghost), called “Ghost”.

I wanted to play with the idea of exploring something completely different graphically to represent the Holy Spirit. Usually, the symbol is a dove, but I wanted to break out of the norm for this. The series was created to present a different side of the subject, so the art should do the same. I loved the idea of going a little bit toward the supernatural-ghost-horror flick type of graphic. I started with three ideas. Here are the three initials I sent over:

 

PFB: Ghost – Concept #1
My first thought was to use an image I had of an old church and make it look sort-of haunted.

PFB: Ghost – Concept #2
For something completely different, I also used this stock image of smoke with simple text. There is something mysterious about just the smoke and the empty space. [This was rejected for looking too much like cigarette smoke, which I believe that picture is...] But they liked the concept of the empty-ness with a bit of smoke or something.

PFB: Ghost – Concept #3
This was another variation of #1. I used two of my own stock photos, the church and the foggy plain, and added some smoke and subtle text. I love this concept and might reuse it for something else.

FINAL ARTWORK:
Here is the final result. They had really liked the font from #1, but it didn’t work on the black background, so we kept this one. I added a bit of the smoke to the text instead of having it to the side. The green tint adds a bit of a supernatural/mysterious look. They were really happy with the final concept, and so was I.

What do you think? How did it turn out?
