Nobody loves theology more than I do, and nobody hates eschatology (end-times teaching) more than I do. Well, I guess I don’t hate eschatology so much as I can’t stand how confusing it is.
Well, that’s over—kinda—thanks to the innovation of Josh Byers. He’s compiled information related to the three main Christian views of the end of the world and presented them in an easy to read/understand infographic.
This will definitely be a go-to resource for me in the future:
I’ve seen some cool fonts, but I’ve never seen a font that’s an optic illusion all by itself.
Matteo Ragni from Italy created TobeUs because he couldn’t stand that his kids would play with a new toy for a few hours and then move on to the next toy. So he came up with TobeUs:
“Toy cars made of cedar wood, strong and sweet-scented, beautiful and clever because they were built by skillful and passionate designers.”
Not only did he give the designers a block of wood connected to 2 dowels he also gave them exact directions.
“TobeUs is made by two cuts in a wooden stump that always have the same size.”
He sent this idea to 100 different designers to see what they could come up with.
In my non-verbal communication class back in college, we studied about the power of color and the meanings it conveys.
Color is far more powerful than we give it credit for.
So, when your designing a website or putting together a logo, don’t let ‘taste’ and ‘preference’ be the ultimate decision maker. You may want to consider the following psychological effects of color:
These are … uh … amazing?
I’m sure we’ve all seen our fair share of terrible logos in our days, and each one is just as cringe-worthy as the last.
For me, though, it hurts even more when I see a church that has a logo that’s borderline atrocious, because to me, a logo is the first thing seekers may see when they hear about the church through modern outreach mediums like a web site, social media, or advertisements, brochures and other print material.
Church logos should be inviting – and leave people wanting to know more about this place they’re hearing about. Just like a business works to perfect it’s brand or corporate identity, a church’s logo should also be synonymous with what the church stands for, and should make people feel invited as much as a handshake on Sunday Morning does.
Here are a few things to consider, which can help make sure your church logo isn’t abysmal:
These dope prints by DopePrints on Etsy are … well … dope.
When I first saw some of their work, I was impressed. They did an awesome job remixing posters for a number of movies including–Batman, The Usual Suspects, The Godfather and many, many more.
As you can see by the minimal movie poster below, DopePrints has some real talent. But then I stumbled on some Pixar minimal movie quote posters they did.
Talk about inspirational!
I can drink out of an aluminum can and then crush it before placing it in the recycling bin.
Never could I do something this awesome!
Look at these others:
Overpopulation. Homelessness. Environmental destruction. Consumerism.
These are social sins that plague virtually every corner of the planet. But a new invention promises to address all of these – and from the comfort of nothing less than a Tricycle!
Invented in China, where overcrowding is a serious problem, the Tricycle House gives a place to call home for those that otherwise have no means to own land. If successful, it could be the perfect mission project for your church.
I love these kind of CSS snippets.
Here’s a nice smattering of basic, but very awesome, CSS styles that are all ready for you to copy and paste!
