We would like a clean and simple logo for our church capital fundraising campaign. The theme of our campaign is "Unleashed" and this text should be incorporated within the logo design. The goal of our capital campaign is to share the vision of our church growth plan with our congregation, and ultimately get them to donate.
The term unleash means to "set free", "let go", "rise up" and "break the chains". This logo will help us release the spirit and outward reach of the church, to spread goodwill, charity and grace, to help, serve and inspire. We want to unleash our passion. These are phrases that we feel make it easier to conceptualize a design around the word "Unleashed". We don't want the logo to be too busy. No shadows, gradients or 3D effects. As for color scheme we are pretty flexible, but feel strongly about staying away from anything red. Colors that are warm and inviting are preferable.
The logo will be used on our microsite, brochures, and commitment cards. Think of a commitment card as a postcard size print where a member fills out their donor information.
There is a bible verse that is the foundation of our campaign. It's Ephesians 3:20 and we'd like to have this reference somewhere within the logo. It doesn't need to be big and can be abbreviated as "Eph 3:20". Perhaps there is a ribbon that goes under/over the logo with the verse inside of it.
Here are some designs that we like, but please don't let these restrict you from thinking outside the box. These are just to give you a feel for our design taste:
Our church web address is http://www.dspres.org in case you want to get a little more background on us. But please keep in mind we're not limited to the design/branding of this site. The capital campaign is a separate initiative and we have the creative freedom to step our design up a notch.
If you have any questions, or need further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask.
