We have a concept that we have come up with that we are really seeking to refine through this process. We are seeking an artist to take our concept (with the symbolism we have outlined below. Notes for you are included in parentheses) and perfect it. Our font choices in the mockup were done to convey the message we were sending. Help us make this look like a truly finished product. We are also including a sample style guide so you can get an idea of what direction we're going in. You can visit us online at http://redeemer.net to learn more about us and get a feel for who we are.
The Circle: Unity. Eternity. We are now God's family. Represents the Redeemer community, who is redeemed by Jesus. (A circle is the central focus of our logo)
Redeemer: The word Redeemer, the focal point of the logo, was chosen to point to a living Jesus who died on the cross and rose from the grave to redeem us. (There is intentionally not a cross in this logo)
· Redeem Austin: This is Jesus mission, to seek and save the lost. We are called to partner with Him on that mission. Our desire for our neighbors to know and love Jesus. (We want "Redeem" to be in the circle, and "er" to be outside the circle)
· Redeem | er: Jesus is not confined to His Church, but goes outside to redeem the lost. Jesus’ movement out calls us to follow Him into the community to engage people don’t know Him. We are on the move together as a family. (We chose this to show forward motion)
· The tail of the R: Jesus is the only way into the family. And He leads us back out into the world to reach people who do not know Him. (Ideally, the leg of the R would extend outside of the circle)
· Handwritten: Redeemer is unique. It is authentic. A handwritten font helps to capture the beautiful uniqueness of this community. (We're looking for the "Redeemer" part of the logo to be something scripted, while "Austin" is in a capitalized, sans-serif font)
