BEGINNINGS & BLESSINGS
9/20/2015 - 6/19/2016
Hey all: Greg has some great ideas about taking this into a realistic photography-based concept instead of an illustrator concept. He's going to run with it and provide something for this weekend for you. He's got loads more skills.. Gonna be good! ...Patti.
In Steve's Vision Sunday sermon (9/13/2015), he issued the call for the people of St. Andrew's to "walk faithfully with God." He also stated that given the number of new people, this year we would "go back to basics."
Facilitating this call is the Sunday sermon series 'Genesis: Beginnings and Blessings' (September 2015 - June 2016) and the Wednesday Worship WEDTalks 'Naturally Supernatural' (September 2015 - December 2016).
We have begun a slow release of the Wednesday night series graphics via FaceBook and Wednesday night services. [View the Wednesday Worship campaign here.] The Wednesday Worship design is a simple triangle on various backgrounds. The style is minimal, balanced, and allows for photographic imagery as a backdrop to the Trinity symbol.
Steve's use of the phrases 'back to basics' and 'beginnings' suggests to me the continued use of basic structures and minimalistic design for the Genesis study as well. I suggest the following: a clean, modern look, basically a modified flat design, incorporating symbolic elements as we journey through the Genesis readings.
An aside: City Church is conducting a modified 29-week Genesis study which began on September 6 and will end by Easter. We have implemented Todd's vision of a game board (Candyland style) to track through the series. [View the City Church Genesis series here.] Using the same typeface and many of the same elements will provide some continuity between the series, and will simplify the logistics of designing the weekly sermon title slides for both series.
Given the length of the series, 40 weeks, we want to create the sense of moving forward, 'walking with God' week to week, therefore I use a visual timeline along the bottom of Sunday's sermon titles. Also, as Greg suggested, the series can be broken up into major categories. With each category, we can could up the basic look of the graphic and create the web icons accordingly.
Note: As we move through the year, it is also my desire to visually represent Steve's further explanation of 'walking faithfully with God':
- Walk with God
- Walk with one another
- Walk into the world
What follows below is the working schedule with sermon titles and links to the scriptures, and suggested divisions to the study.
