michaelsciretti got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Design an "Enlightening" Circular Logo for Epiphany Today
Check out michaelsciretti's Logo design contest…
- At EPIPHANY TODAY we help disillusioned Christians discover and practice the lost, transformational wisdom of Jesus to deepen their spirituality and find fulfillment in life. - We teach the WHY, WHAT and HOW of Contemplative prayer and offer guidance and support in establishing a practice 4 Focus Areas - Entempling Prayer: teaching contemplative prayer using the “temple” root image and creating resources to aid people in the practice of contemplative prayer - Enchanting Wisdom: teaching contemplative wisdom and simple songs/chants drawing from ancient Christian Wisdom sources from the Syriac Orient, Greek East and Latin West, as well as modern research and explorations, and creating resources to aid people in the practice of living contemplatively and compassionately - Encouraging Community: helping contemplatives who feel isolated from other contemplatives to find support and connection at the level of the heart - Enlightening Service: encouraging and equipping people for enlightened action and service in the world that arises out of one's authentic self and work What sets us apart: Our way of teaching contemplative prayer is very unique in the contemplative Christian spirituality field, and focuses on the root image of "contemplative" - the Jewish Temple. This teaching has been very well received wherever I teach it. No one is really quite using this image like I am. I also use simple songs / chants to help teach and to learn contemplation, and that is somewhat unique in this field. I am also beginning to create audio guided prayer experiences using this method of contemplative prayer that connect with my book, Entempling: Baptist Wisdom for Contemplative Prayer. And I don't think anyone in the Christian tradition is quite doing it like this (using audio guided prayer). This could be a big differentiator from a practical, selling perspective. Audience: - Our Ideal Customer Avatar is a woman in her early 60s in the MidAtlantic. She is middleclass, nearing or recently retired. She is educated, but not necessarily having gone to graduate school. - Our ICA is seeking Knowledge and Practice. Knowledge: They might be Baptist/Christian, but they feel like something is missing. Engaged with a church, but in some ways the church is not meeting this need. Our Offer: Showing the contemplative stream within Baptist spirituality. Showing the root image/metaphor for contempling spirituality. So it so both rooted in the Baptist tradition as well as the JewishChristian tradition. Practice: Our ICA is seeking a deeper connection with God. Desire to be more centered. Our Offer: Teaching a simple, replicable method of entempling (contemplative) prayer.
Epiphany means "manifestation." Our foundational scripture is Ephesians 5:14 - "Awaken, sleeper. Arise from the dead, and the Christ will enlighten you." Or "shine on you." The imagery we use is of a sun rising in the east. So "dawning" imagery is important to incorporate, "rising" imagery, the sun rising on the horizon. Somehow, perhaps, also to use a cross image subtly. Such as if the logo is in a circle, having the spokes of a cross protruding out north, south, east, west. We have also included the draft of our upcoming ebook. I REALLY like the shape of churches in the Ethiopian Orthodox Tradition - tripartite concentric circles. I'll attach a picture. I can envision a logo that uses that basic pattern in some way. What is VERY important to me is that somehow the logo is both a symbol and a teaching. By that, I mean that the logo needs to communicate our core messages. FIRST, based on Ephesians 5:14, there is a process of awakening, arising, and being enlightened. I typically draw that out for people. A horizontal axis, straight line. Then a vertical axis/line. At first it's like we are "asleep" on the horizontal. (So I draw a stick figure laying down.) Then something awakens us and we stand up, aligned with the vertical. (Then I draw a stick figure standing up.) As that happens, we become "enlightened," so I draw a rising sun coming up from the horizontal axis shining down but also radiating outwards (like it's coming out of the standing stick figure). SECOND, out other primary image of the temple. The temple had three chambers, and we use this to talk about our body as a temple, so contemplative prayer is about going into the temple of our own being so that we can be a "priest" in the world. The Ethiopian Orthodox tradition took the 3 chambers and made it into 2 concentric circles with a cube in the most central area. I like circular imagery, so I love how this image might could bring our two Core Images together: Sun (awakening, rising, enlightening) and Temple.
