How johngrandy started their logo design journey

Company name

EPIC Student Ministry

Overview

We are a relevant, modern youth ministry at a thriving church south of Cleveland, Ohio. Don't think of your grandmother's church, think of a church that reaches the current creative generation right where they are at. We are real people, living relevant lives, relentlessly pursuing new life. This vision permeates our entire community, especially our youth ministry.

Our vision for our new youth ministry branding is, "Finding our place in the EPIC story God is telling." We want our logo to paint a picture of a journey we are all on to find life and find God. Every week we strive to reach students right where they are at as we speak their language and design environments and images that will engage their attention and their souls. We realize the youth group environments and designs of yesterday are simply irrelevant to a generation of students who embrace mystery and abstract concepts. We want our logo to draw students into mystery through abstract and retro design elements.

I hope this project makes your creative genius come alive and fire on all cylinders as you have a blast creating what we envision!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We are a youth ministry which engages students age 11-18. We have three separate youth gatherings...one for 6th grade, one for junior high, and one for senior high. These students are like any other teenagers you see. They love having fun, talking, hanging out and they have all the latest technology.

Like I said, this isn't your grandmother's church, so our students are all on Facebook (who isn't, right?), most have cell phones, and they are up on all the latest music, movies and media.

As far as design goes, they are attracted to colorful, layered, complex images that make them zoom in closer to see all the layers. Although mystery puzzles them, it also engages them, so they ask many questions as they wrestle with deeper meaning and hunger for truth and purpose.

Requirements

The first and most important requirement is to HAVE FUN! We want this to be a fresh, cutting-edge logo that gives the feeling of relaxation and fun. Please feel free to be as creative as possible. Let this project give you permission to branch out into new areas of design

As you design this logo, I would love to see four separate images. The first with the main "EPIC Student Ministry" image itself. The second with the main "EPIC Student Ministry" image and "6th Grade" on it somewhere. The second with the main "EPIC Student Ministry" image and "JR High" on it somewhere. And the third with the main "EPIC Student Ministry" image and "SR High" on it somewhere.

I would also like to see an emblem of some kind that would represent who we are as part of the logo…Maybe a really cool looking “E” that could also show part of the journey. This “E” could be positioned alongside or atop the “EPIC Student Ministry” in the logo or actually be a part of the word “EPIC”. This would be a similar concept to the way the “LW” is in our church’s logo (see http://www.livingwaterfmc.org).

Here are the links to our church and youth ministry web pages to give you another glimpse of who we are:

I've also attached images of designs and fonts that capture the style of design we love and want to see incorporated into the design of our logo.
