New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am the associate pastor at the First Presbyterian Church of Ukiah, CA and was brought on to work with youth and families and revitalize the congregation's aging population. Step #1 was get a website with a reasonable, simple design, and a logo to suit it.
So I have started with this design concept, but am wondering what would be some helpful directions I could take with it (including start over).
An explanation of the design:
The celtic cross is the centerpiece of the church's architecture.
The five "lines" mimic the roofline of the church. They also represent the five values of our congregation taken from our purpose statement.
The blue and green represent the natural landscape of Ukiah, which is an agricultural community in Mendocino County in Northern California.
A tension I am also trying to convey:
The piece is attempting to convey a sense of simplicity because many of the folks here resonate with traditional values.
I am also trying to communicate a slightly progressive tone, since Ukiah is also a young community located in wine country that values organic/sustainable living.
Please let me know what you think with frankness and forthrightness. I am an amateur but very teachable.
