This past Wednesday was Veterans Day. I am privileged to know a courageous World War II veteran named Walter Fleming. He operated a Higgins boat (LCVP) rescuing wounded from Iwo Jima’s Red Beach 1. He is a true hero and I love listening to his stories. His uniform is on display at the Iwo Jima Museum in Harlingen, TX.
After his time in the service, he helped found World Indigenous Missions and worked for many years as a missionary planting churches in Mexico. It’s harder for him to travel now, but he and his wife Cathy have found a new outlet for ministry: book publishing. Walter and Cathy amaze me with their dedication and efficiency. This summer they helped a pastor in Africa publish a book. I had the honor of designing the cover shown above.
Custom Computer Systems, Inc. has a great piece of software called “Stuff That Works.” It automates tenant management for public housing authorities. They came to me needing a new website with a clear call-to-action to help secure potential clients. Part of my assignment was to find imagery that captured the essence of their software. I must admit, they have a great analogy for how easy their software is to use: “Like parallel parking a moped instead of a city bus.” #ForTheWin
I also gave their outdated logo a facelift to stylistically complement their new online presence.
Dale and his teammates at Mission Omega are focused on mobilizing people to get involved in the Great Commission by praying, giving or even going to the mission field. They needed a website that gave them not only an inspiring online presence, but also a place to post blog updates and receive credit card donations.
One of my favorite sections of this one-page parallax site is “Our Purpose” which utilizes simple icons to cast their four-fold vision.
A church needed to promote an event they planned to minister to ladies. What woman wouldn’t want to attend a spa night? Fun!
I enjoyed playing with the swash characters found in Bellwethers, the latest font I’ve added to my collection.
True Life Fellowship wanted an icon for their prophetic ministry. They chose an owl as the symbolic representation, so I created a vector illustration with a simple, meaningful color scheme.
