The Crossing http://www.thecrossingchurch.com
We are a church looking for professional and consistent design and ascetics for our resources. We desire an artistic feel with professional, simple, and modern design. A good example is the Mars Hill Church design at http://www.marshillchurch.org/media/sermons. Our church website is http://www.thecrossingchurch.com.
Middle Class professionals who are familiar with podcasts, iTunes, etc. Well educated. Suburban.
The sermon series we would like an album/podcast image for is called, "The Unstoppable Kingdom: The Book of Acts". This title needs to be a visible aspect of the cover. The sermon series covers the book of Acts in The Bible. Themes are the spreading of the gospel (the life of Jesus, etc), a boldness for living out the faith, perseverance in the face of trials, and the coming of a greater kingdom (God's kingdom in Heaven) where there will be no pain, sin, sorrow. There is a feel of hope and longing as we persevere in this life to live out the gospel told to us.
Size should be album cover size that you would find on a CD or any podcast.
Feel free to be creative but we don't want the designs to be so intricate that they cannot be understood in the small size that appears on an iPod.
Not overly churchy, please. We are wanting a professional, modern feel. Young and eye catching. Not cheesy. Does not have to look like it was made for a church.
