How Mschiferl started their logo design journey

Company name

Grace Lutheran Church 125th

Overview

Really! But need your design intervention first...Grace Lutheran Church (http://www.gracelutheran-lg.org) is a thriving and growing parish in near West suburban Chicago turning 125 years young! We need an eye-catching look to accompany our many plans to celebrate internally and externally.

As one local blog noted - Grace's weekly schedule rivals some towns' park districts - with a wide variety of activities for members and non-members alike. (http://lagrange.patch.com/listings/…-la-grange).

While the Norman-gothic building and dozens of stunning stain glass windows scream "tradition" - Grace's myriad programs, community and global outreach efforts helps others and shows God's grace in contemporary ways. Grace is an ELCA member - the nation's largest Lutheran Church body (ELCA brand's info: (http://www.elca.org/Who-We-Are/Our-…-Mark.aspx).

The church, with about 1,400 members, has an active pre-school, ongoing partnership with neighboring Catholic church and well-known youth activities, music programs,community nursing programs and more.

A small anniversary committee seeking your designs - we need your "divine design"!

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

Grace Lutheran's 125th anniversary logo/graphic imagery will be used for three audiences: current members, the broader local communities and others associated historically with the church (many local churches started by Grace, former members, former pastors, etc.)

We'll utilize your awesome design on special banners hung inside and outside the building (for example, parking lot banners). We'll also use it on letters about anniversary-related special events, our weekly newsletter, on our website - and even things like 125th annivesary coffee cups.

A few direction notes which might help:
-Think contemporary and eye-catching design, not overty religious imagery per se.
-Grace will celebrate leading up to as well as throughout the actual 125th anniversary - so utilize your stunning look for a few years
-There isn't a current logo or look of the parish (on stationary for example) that you need to consider/match
-While it's hard to say what will appeal to all members, we want to appeal to broader community too

Requirements

We have some specific requirements for the logo design, including that all the following words be included:

Grace Lutheran Church
125 years
Remembering, Rejoicing, Reaching Out

There are no particular color requirements, though no more than two colors are preferred. (Grace has no official colors or official font style to follow, though a darker/regal color like purples, reds or blues might be best for one of the colors if using two). Given the Swedish heritage of the church, the colors of the Swedish flag (blue/yellow) also.

Since the logo will be used in a variety of ways (see above) the vertical or horizonal of the design should be considered in terms of how flexible is it to a variety of uses - from banners to smaller graphic uses like letterhead for anniversary event notices/letters. Can it be reproduced "big" and "small" for example?

Including a graphic image would be great - but it need not be overtly religious like a crucifix, steeple or Bible - in fact, likely more appealing if contemporary in look/feel while knowing church-related.

Have fun - we appreciate your submissions!
