I am creating a book that is geared towards our microchurch leaders. (See definition of microchurches above). It is a field guide of sorts that goes over the essentials of microchurch leadership: vision of why we do microchurches as well as practical steps and how to for leadership.
The size of the book is 5.5” x 8.5”. On the front cover, I would like to have one of the following as the title (I will give the designer artistic license to choose which they feel works better and the font):
1. Microchurch Leader Essentials
2. Microchurch Leader Field Guide.
I would like the cover to definitely have a green background color or have green be a primary color on the front cover. Attached a color palette with the Greenhouse logo to base it off of. I would like the back the book to be very simple with just two websites: http://www.greenhousechurch.org and http://www.microchurchleaders.com The back cover can be designed to be the same feel as the front or just be a single color that makes the websites pop.
You can potentially use one of the two logos attached below, so if there is a design that you are thinking of that works with either the Greenhouse logo or the Microchurch logo feel free to use one or the other. Or even if you have an idea that utilizes the flowery design of the microchurch logo (and not the "microchurch" part) or neither logo, that is fine too! (There is a lot of liberty on this design).
I want the cover to be modern, sleek, engaging, edgy... or a combo of any of these. I do not want it to have the feeling of being religious (no crosses or traditional church symbols), stiff or what you would expect from a boring manual!
Creativity in the design is always encouraged! ☺
