Graphics Projects from this Past Week

By Molly

Last week I worked on another project for Pastor Metz of Kilgore.  He is doing a sermon series about the Corinthian church and Paul's letters which were to help them rethink their actions.

He called me to ask me to design another photo... this one much more simple than the babies.  :)  In order to help me get a grasp on what I was going to do, I looked up images that might portray the same idea that Pastor Metz wanted.  This is what I found:

... and this is what I made:

My manager, James, actually posed for this.  There were a couple of great expressions, but this one was the winner.  :)   Oh!  And the mechanic was NOT originally working on an engine.  And that engine would NOT need to be worked on because it is very much a brand new Ford engine.  :)  This was a quick project... about two and a half hours total, including the changes after the first draft.

This week I also finished the mini x-pole displays that are for Ernest Ehabe of Bread for Life.  They are 14"x10", and they are used to be a quick form of information for whoever carries them.  They're called an "x-pole" because the back of the hardware holding them up forms an X.

There are 5 that we're shipping today.  We are also shipping a retractable display, which stands about 7 feet.  Ernest wanted it to be with the same information as the X-Poles PLUS more because it will stand alone in their guest hut and in one other location where guests will stay who are not completely familiar with the organization.  Here is what one of the retractables looks like:

I also worked on changing the coffee label you've seen earlier, though I'm not done with that.  Trees of Hope is putting out tiny bags with their newsletter attached, and they needed labels to match.  Here is what I've come up with so far (the bag is a forest green):

These projects have been the main ones over the last two weeks.  Each week we pray for the clients we are serving and their ministries, and we try to e-mail them with encouragement.  You can check out some of the clients listed at their websites:, and  

Maybe YOU can find a way to encourage them as well!
