St. Joseph the Worker is creating its own Vacation Bible School for the summer of 2021. I was tasked with creating a brand identity for the event. I used the theme "Geologists for Jesus" as my base.

Lent 2021 Theme

Lent 2021 Theme

Graphic Design
SJTW does preaching series where the parish spends a few weeks doing a deep dive into a certain topic and the sermons all follow a theme chosen by a team. The theme for Lent 2021 is "Hope in the Desert." I designed this image and logo for the series. This image will be shared online and on the screens in the church and serves as the identity for the theme to help parishioners connect the messages together. I also wrote the below paragraph to introduce the theme to parishioners and visitors. In these difficult and uncertain times, it can feel like we’re lost in the middle of a desert. But we’re not alone, and the desert offers us an opportunity to grow.Every Lent, we walk with Jesus on a journey through…

Vaccine Promotion

Vaccine Promotion

Graphic Design
My supervisor at St. Joseph the Worker wanted me to share something to encourage parishioners to get the Covid-19 vaccine when they are able. We decided it would be best to create something to make them smile. I used Adobe Creative Cloud to create a "meme" that included a picture of my supervisor receiving his vaccine. The resulting post was one of our most popular posts in the past year and had exceptional reach and engagement on Facebook. You can find it below.
