Consumer to Producer

Every blog needs one of these… “So I’ve decided to start a blog”  or “hello world” posts. But so many of these blogs are followed by a second post 6 months later saying “I’ve been too busy to update.”

This is not that blog.

I’ve been waiting for this day for almost a year now. I have spent hours planning, reading and writing. This is not the first and last. This is the first of many.

Today I turn 30. And today I have decided to make a conscious decision to change who I am and how I spend my time.

At the age of 4 I started attending pre-school. 19 years later when I graduated from college I was supposed to move from learning to doing. But that’s not exactly what happened. Learning, consuming and absorbing was ingrained in me. I took every moment I could to

PennDel Youth Convention 2012 (promo video)

Preparing for Youth Convention is a daunting task and it all starts with promo months in advance. Last summer I had the privilege of working with Jonathan Jones to create some promo videos for the upcoming year. One of the more creative ones we came up with was this video for Youth Convention. We had to overcome some unique issues…

Runway (stage design)

PennDel Youth Camp 2013

The theme was Runway so the goal was to give you the feeling that we were going somewhere. We wanted to give the anticipation from the moment you walked in that we were going to take off. So we used this image of a runway that we

Element Church 3rd Anniversary (video)

For the 3rd Anniversary of Element Church, my boss wanted to do something special. Long story short we wanted to shoot a bobble head video. And this is what we came up with. A quick video congratulating them on 3 years.

Brian Porzio is a evangelist and actor living in LA. He was in need of a clean website that he could use to promote himself and his ministry. Brian speaks at camps and conferences nation wide and also needed a place for people to leave feedback and connect with him. Brian already has a blog on wordpress.com so it was a simple process to take that and import it to a selfhosted wordpress site. We grabbed a theme from themeforest.net and tweaked it.

Theme Used: intermezzo

We also wanted to brand Brian with a clean font that he could use elsewhere, on business cards or anything he was printing or designing. We went to dafont.com and came up with Clemente. It has clean lines as well as having an assortment of weights.

Font Used: Clemente

Since Brian is an evangelist, we wanted to allow him to take donations on his website. The easiest way for him to do this was to implement a donation button from paypal.

We were also able to set up a custom page that pulls video content linked from youtube or vimeo and one that pulls testimonials. It makes it easy for him to add more of these items as he wishes in the future.

Check Brian out at brianporzio.com.

A couple months ago I had a conversation with the new PennDel Youth Alive Missionary, Lee Rogers about a web project he wanted to get up and running. The goal is to create a place where students and leaders can visit to get information, encouragement and resources about reaching there schools for Christ. Lee wrote a number of posts and I built the site. We launched it just in time for our Youth Advance Retreat in September.

We then included a QR code on the wrist bands we gave to the campus missionaries and sent them follow up emails to encourage traffic. We also linked the posts to Facebook so students could get the posts in their feed.

After the retreat we posted the sessions that the students attended so they could share them with their friends and youth leaders could share them with their students. It has worked well. And this is just the beginning.

Passport to Ministry (graphic design)

As part of our Speed the Light goal setting we provide the pastors with a “Passport” that covers many of the projects we need to raise money for in the coming year. I have about 5 past passports that I looked through and decided to try to make this year’s look more like a passport. After some searching I found a number of authentic immigration stamps that I tied into the design. I hope this piece accomplishes it’s goal of sparking interest and it helps raise money for the projects.

CLA Sermon Series (design)

I wanted to present all of the sermon series I had a hand in molding at CLA and so below I have included (almost) all of the DVD cases. Many of these look much better on the case then they do flat, but here they are. It is fun to look back on 2 years or so of design work and criticize it. I would have done a lot different now and I’m sure I will look back to the designs I do today and criticize them as well… The Not So Easy Button, Gold Medal, and Search for Significance Cases were all from scratch created in Photoshop. One Month to Live and Just Walk Across the Room were prepackaged series that I used graphics from and put them into our shell. Some of the others use stock images.
