Designing is not a profession but an attitude...
Thinking in relationships
I think its amazing when graphic design can combine with other things that I love. I was just asked recently to design some things for the Young Life Banquet in Manatee County. Young Life is a ministry that reaches outo to middle school and high school students. Every year there is a banquet fundraiser, and I was asked to design the invitation. It was a nautical theme, so designing the invitation was a lot of fun. I used the standard color scheme of red, white and blue. And along with some anchors and nautical stripes, added some pictures of Young Life kids. Next, I started working on the t-shirt for the event. Young Life invites all students to participate in the banquet program and they are each given a free t-shirt. I got a lot of input from some students. They really cared what the shirt looked like, so I did not want to disappoint! I sent my final design off to be printed and did not see the actual shirts until the day of the event. It was really cool to see so many people wearing a shirt that I designed. I am thankful for the opportunity to help a ministry that is so special and does so much for kids.
