The Five Solas

Golden Hills' annual Small Group Campaign is all about the five Solas of the Protestant Reformation. These foundational truths define the Christian faith and are a great reminder of our history as a church. I designed the look after many hours of research into artwork and styles of the 16th century and added some modern influence. Even the typeface I used for the workbook, Adobe Garamond, is based on the original Garamond typeface from the time period of the Reformation (when printing presses were starting to become popular). I wanted the book to feel authentic to the source material and give it a sense of age and history. Below are a few select spreads of the workbook for you to see.

Sing Noel—Christmas 2017 Poster

This is GHCC's Christmas Musical, entitled Sing Noel. The musical has a woodsy, cabin lumberjack look so I tried to incorporate that feeling into the poster.

5 Solas: Winter Camp 2018

GHCC's Winter Camp 2018 is tied into the church's Small Group Study for the Winter on the 5 Solas, but they wanted their own style and visual theme to distinguish it as a separate event. The direction became a Roman theme (so we could use the 5 as a Roman Numeral V) with Centurians vs. Gladiators as the main teams. It was very enjoyable researching this time period and culture. I have always had a fascination with Roman culture, so it was fun to explore it in an artistic way.

We Are Witnesses Book

In addition to the regular design of the branding for the current sermon series, this time I also designed a book for We Are Witnesses. It is an eleven-week study guide, and each week coincides with the message given the previous Sunday.

We Are Witnesses

The current series at GHCC is "We Are Witnesses", a series in the Book of Acts. With a main emphasis on reaching the nations with the Gospel, I wanted the look of this to be a global background with icons to represent the basic message we are witnesses of: The death of Jesus, the resurrection of Jesus, and the coming of the Holy Spirit to all believers.

Easter 2017: Triumph Over Death

Coming off a string of colorful Easter promotions I finally tried out something I have always wanted to do for Easter, which is use a mostly Black & White palette. The Triumph Over Death theme seemed like a good time to try out a "light over darkness" theme in my artwork.

The Chocolate Plate

I know I'm in the minority, but I am not a fan of wine. So wine tasting does not sound like a good time for me. But chocolate tasting is something I can get behind. The Chocolate Plate is a new start-up that offers chocolate tasting for parties in Oregon. I designed the logo to look like the chocolate piping over some of the finer chocolates they serve. If you're in that area, or if you just want to look at pictures and drool, check out their website.
