SOME NEW THINGS TO CONSIDER:
After speaking with the pastor, he appreciates and looks forward to more designs. They are looking great.
While we've talked about the Vision statement, he's hoping to see something that really resonates with our specific vision.
He's wondering if there was a way to think of it this way. He's going to be presenting 3 "threads" of who the people of First West are. He's hoping that First West "positions people for spiritual growth" and it by doing so fulfills the vision of the church. He thinks these 'strands' are Worship, Community, and Service. We will be doing a "threads" sermon series in the near future...and that art work is going to lean towards more to DNA or Rope. We're not necessarily looking for those things within the logo...but would like to see some interpretations of 'threads' in the logo. Maybe it's an abstract 'strand' of some sort. Play around and let's see what we get.
THINGS WE WANT:
We'd like the logo to be in Vector format. We will be using this in multiple ways and want to have the freedom to resize.
Also...we need this logo to be able to handle color, but also...be black on white...but also white on black.
Connections for the font(s) used in the text, so to build brand consistency across multiple ministries.
Possible combination of the 1 and W. You can see our Student logo in the Logo section. It's a great representation for our student ministry at this time. It's clearly a "1W." Any sort of marrying of the 1 and W would be good. In the same breath, this is not a mandate or an expectation.
THINGS WE DON'T WANT:
We aren't necessarily looking for standard "churchy" emblems like flames, doves, crosses, open Bibles etc.
Scripture verse references.
You can also see our current logo. It's a bit dated and we're wanting to move away from it.
