Motion: Character

This is a video for rezlife’s 2011-2012 Sunday School curriculum, Character. This year is a focus on the Old Testament, as related mostly through the people who encapsulate most of its story. Thus, characters like Moses, Abraham, David, Adam and Eve, etc., form the nucleus of the curriculum’s content. Of course, the title Character is…

Photography: rezlife student ministries 2011-2012

For the rezlife student ministries 2011-2012 de3sign collateral I also created some staff photos that went with the rest of the design scheme. I took these all with the Canon T2i and the 50mm 1.4. Enjoy.

Design: Connection Cards

These are the connection cards for rezlife student ministries 2011-2012. Ok, they are actually ‘business cards,’ at least in size and shape. But I think ‘connection card’ more adequately describes their intent. Plus it gives me a dramatic two word statement to make into a sentence fragment, the addition of a period giving the sense…

Motion: Priorities

This video and graphics package is for rezlife’s current teaching series: Priorities. With this series I knew I wanted to really strip it down, going as simplistic as possible. With a series called “Priorities,” there any number of directions to pursue. I started thinking about what things define us in the modern world, especially younger…

Motion: rezlife 2011-2012

Every year for rezlife student ministries I end up creating a entire package of design collateral: a brochure, (this year a booklet) connection cards, signage, screen graphics, etc. Along with that I also make an intro video. This year was especially tricky in that I wasn’t really feeling any ideas for it, even up to…

Exordium

Since, then, we wish to have our hearer receptive, well-disposed, and attentive, I shall disclose how each state can be brought about. We can have receptive hearers if we briefly summarize the cause and make them attentive; for the receptive hearer is one who is willing to listen attentively. We shall have attentive hearers by promising…

Essence Beyond Existence

This installment of my paraphrases of the early church fathers comes from St. John of Damascus, also known as St. John Damascene or The Damascene. John was born in Damascus around AD 676 to Mansur, a Christian who was the chief financial officer of the caliph in Damascus. John’s father wished for him to have…

Design: rezlife 2011-2012 booklet

Every fall for the past five years I have designed a promotional/informational flyer for rezlife Student Ministries. Generally we do a 8.5×14 folded flyer, but every year more and more content has had need to be included. The flyer originally consisted of some pictures of the meeting space, (the Student Center) a few quotes from…

Anatomy of a Messy Office

Photoshop can be extremely unstable. Especially on my computer at work. It has this odd habit of crashing, and then taking about 15 minutes to complete the crashing process before I am able to use it again. Quite annoying. On Thursday it happened, and I was not inclined to simply sit patiently and wait, so…

Megan of the Corn

I am always on the lookout for photo opportunities, and I found one that was just too good to pass up. On my way to work are these fields of corn, and they probably grow to about six feet high. I’ve always wanted to do some pictures in a cornfield, but I’ve never really had…

Art and a Deal with the Devil

I happened across an interesting insight yesterday while sitting in a waiting room. I have never read Faust, and so I opened it up on my phone to start reading. I have a fairly vague notion of the overall plot of the book, and so when I started reading I was unsure if I was…
