Our New Bible Banner Series
We just launched our newest series last week and are really excited to hear what you think about them. We didn’t necessarily set out to design banners for the children’s ministry, but after we got started we could tell quickly that’s where we were heading. Our inspiration came from a few different places. The first and best was through prayer and the Holy Spirit. We can’t tell you enough of how many times we feel led through Him on what we should be doing around here. It makes life easier when we stop to listen. (We don’t always stop to listen, but when we do we find it so much better!!) Another part came from my children. I love the Storybook Bible and the pictures in it while I read to my children at night. I like the pictures, but wanted something more abstract and less detailed. I’m a huge fan of abstract art. The other inspiration came from the beautiful stained glass found in cathedrals and sanctuaries around the world. I’ve always admired the time and effort that is put into the piece of art that you can sit and stare at for hours. So, with those inspirations the thought process on these Bible Story Banners was to create a simple design, with no words, that told the story with a powerful image. Again, initially we thought these banners would hang in the sanctuary and allowed people to be inspired while worshiping, but quickly found our selves designing in more child like formats with the color tones we were using. So our first roll out of these designs will be great for your children areas and even for a sermon series if you’re doing a discussion on one of the stories. Once you’re done with the sermon series the banners can easily be placed in another area of your church to display. But for the mean time this first series we think will really enhance your children’s ministry area or any other area you think it fits.
In a few weeks we hope to have each story in a new format that might work better in church sanctuaries with a richer more elegant feel to it. Check back with us soon to see if we’ve come up with something that might work better for other areas of the church. In the meantime, give us some feedback and let us know if you’d like to see some other stories of the Bible added to the series. We’ve got 2 more that should be coming later this week, but we’d love to hear back from our wonderful customers! You have always been great at giving us wonderful advice and we’re always open to hearing your suggestions. It’s fun to design for you. We hope you enjoy the new series and please send the designer who spent several weeks on it a shout out Collin@churchbanners.com. We think he’s done a great job. Above are pictures from his art book to the computer. He’s a pro at conceptualizing the ideas we have in our head on paper and letting me choose how we should put it together. Then he runs with the ideas. It’s great to see it all play out and we hope you enjoy seeing a small part of our design operations!
