After a long hiatus from updating the site I’m glad to bring this one to the world. Blessed to Be a Blessing is a new campaign that was launched at The Rock Church in Elk Grove California. Pastor C. Myles Young wanted a design that was going to be fresh, modern, and bold. I came up with the classic concept of hands being held open, ready to receive blessing, but vamped it up with a modern twist by adding in clean geometric designs, and bright colors.
I chose purple as the dominant color in the design to represent royalty, riches and spirituality. The arrows represent blessing coming down into the hand, and then radiating outward, in other words, “blessed to be a blessing”. The geometric triangle pattern in the background continues the theme of the arrows in a simplified way, and the white triangle borders in the bottom left and right give a sense that we are looking into a window of a much larger triangle/arrow. The design was used as a large scale banner, and was produced in a number of formats for people to download as wallpaper backgrounds for their mobile devices and tablets.
