New Series Banner Design

August 17, 2011 2 comments

This is the design I went with for our new series on the 7 deadly sins and 7 heavenly virtues. It’s kind of a tough series advertise outside without appearing judgmental in some way. That’s why I added the “all are welcome” text. We’re all sinners in need of grace and in a constant flux of minimizing and suppressing our sinful nature while choosing to live out our Christian virtues instead.

Hopefully this will be eye-catching and raise interest in people, especially new people. To achieve this design I used 3 different creative swap files “adam and eve”, “bling generation”, and “something heavenly” I think. I created one file for the sin graphic that we can adapt for the series slides, etc. and one for the virtues. I brought them both into the banner template, added shadow and the plus sign in between (which was actually a “&” in a font that made it a plus, and I liked it better). I did a simple gradient in the background but tweaked it so that my clean text at the bottom would be read easily. That’s about it.

What have you designed recently?
