Nemesis: HSWC 2010

GHCC High School Winter Camp is also coming up and I designed the identity system for that as well. The theme is Nemesis, an exploration into the causes of us being unable to get close to God. I will try to post the brochure art soon.

Sofia: MSWC 2010

GHCC Middle School Winter Camp is coming up and I have put together the identity system for it. The theme is Sofia, a Greek word meaning Wisdom. I incorporated the Greek characters into the design. See the official Sofia website @ (site designed by Kyle Stillman).

Leaping Horse Wine

Leaping Horse Vineyards was the first vineyard to begin growing in Lodi, California — a location that is becoming more and more popular. The problem is that Leaping Horse's labels and identity were behind the times and did not stand out in a crowded market. As a project for the Academy of Art I redesigned the labels to be more metaphorical, with a horseshoe as the main image rather than the obvious leaping horse that they currently featured. The horseshoe is the base from which the horse leaps, and therefore became a great mark for the new line of labels. More pictures after the jump.

Serving the Master

Every year, Golden Hills Community Church launches a small group campaign that involves the writing and producing of their own small group devotional materials. This year's theme is "Serving the Master", with an emphasis on our role in God's Kingdom. The goal is for everyone to realize that they are an important piece of the overall puzzle and that through community we can do great things for God.

Identity Design: One-Eighty

One-Eighty is the Middle School Ministry at Golden Hills Community Church. They wanted a new logo that had more meaning than their previous one. The new design features a lock-up with the two "E"s mirroring each other around the cross. This gets across the meaning intended by the name: that lives are changed and students can do a complete "180" at the cross.

Identity Design: Kairos

Kairos is the Young Adult group at Golden Hills Community Church. They recently went through a complete overhaul of their identity: changing name, logo, promo materials, even meeting day and time. Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning "the right or opportune moment". They wanted the young adults to realize that this time in their life is the "right moment" for God to use them. They don't need to wait until they are out of school or working full time. The logo incorporates this idea with the timeline running through the name, meeting at the scope/compass in the "O".

Identity Refresh: Verge Global, Inc.

Verge Global is a ministry organization who helps groups organize short-term missions trips all over the world. They approached me about refreshing their current logo, which involved tweaking the type, color, and shape enough to give it a professional and bold presence.
