Reidwjohnson got their new logo design by running a design contest:
August Church logo: GUARANTEED Please submit original work; no stock photography
Check out Reidwjohnson's Logo design contest…
We are a new church in Austin, Texas. In case you've never visited here, Austin is famous for live music, technology, good food, outdoor fun, beautiful weather, government, and education. It's the fastest growing major city in the United States and a sweet place for hipsters! The word August in "August Church" has nothing to do with the month. August is Latin for "awe-inspiring" or "to be filled with awe." Early Christians didn't want to call Caesar "Caesar Augustus" because they felt no man was worthy of that title; only God could be called the "august One." Our church's mission is to exalt (or give awe back to) God by loving our neighbors and telling them about who Jesus is and what He's done for them. **Ultimately, we desire to give every man, woman, and child in this area repeated opportunities to see, hear, and respond to the good news Jesus provides them.** We desire to reach all Austin residents, but I'd say we primarily attract people aged 18-45.
Logo types to explore
We really want designers to get creative and have fun with this one. Our primary desire is to reach unchurched people, so if you yourself are unchurched, make a logo that would make you say, "That's cool. I'd try that church." I know a logo isn't going to make anyone go to church, but we don't want something that's heavily Christianese either (no big crosses, Christian fish, rivers, etc.). If these things are included, just make sure they're subtle. If you can make the logo have an Austin flavor, that's bonus! If you can somehow incorporate our mission or vision statement above, that might be cool too. As you saw, I didn't give you direction with our "values," because we truly want to reach all of Austin. I guess if I had two values in which we'd move the dials SLIGHTLY, it would be towards subtle and serious. Those are just my personal preferences because I think they most closely relate to us. Honestly, we truly will go with the best design, even if it's a stylized way to write an "a." We also like the idea of having a pictorial or abstract mark that people would see on signage and door hangers that would easily brand us in their memory. The emblem logo is cool too, and if I was leaning a particular direction, it might be that actually. We prefer a monochromatic or complimentary color scheme in the logo, and only use 2-4 colors. For more information, go to http://colorschemedesigner.com. We also prefer sans serif fonts using either all caps or all lower-case. To see some other strong church logos that we admire (for the most part), visit http://churchrelevance.com/resources/top-church-logos/. ***PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR US IS AN ORIGINAL DESIGN. PLEASE DO NOT USE SOMETHING WE CAN FIND ON STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY WEBSITES. THANK YOU.***
