Annually, Houston’s First Baptist Church produces a number of seasonal shirts (not tied to a particular event) for departmental use. The design below was selected to be the student summer shirt at one of the satellite campuses.
The following 2 designs are concepts that weren’t selected, but may be repurposed for another HFBC project in the future.
For the sermon-series God: Also Known As… Sugar Creek Baptist Church made a major promotional push, including the development and production of banners, shirts, and journals (along with several interesting concepts that never made it to production). I was personally responsible for the banners and the journal, which was 60 pages long, and had a spot-gloss treatment across the cover. I will also show the shirts below, because their creation was a collaborative team effort.
To help cut expenses at my wedding, my wife and I decided that I would design, and we would produce, our own wedding invitations, rehearsal dinner invitations, and other necessary print materials. Because we wanted to include several smaller cards with our invitation, I designed a custom die-cut, and hand-glued folder to package everything. Around the wedding invitation folder (and the rehearsal dinner invitation) is a hand-glued piece of ribbon, and a square with a designed version of our initials (C & J).
For Sugar Creek’s 2012 Student Ministry Camp, I produced a variety of the typically needed items: an overall look, name tags, booklets, etc. However, this year I proposed we try something new related to the shirts. Typically, the camp shirt is a carefully designed piece, purposed to be more of a take-home souvenir, than something contributing to the camp experience. This year the design screen printed onto the shirts would be exceedingly simple, saving money, and allowing for team members to stencil on their team logo (using paint). This experimental approach was far more time-intensive for me than a typical shirt design, because I had to hand-cut 20 flag stencils and 20 shirt stencils. However, the effect was well worth the effort, as the shirts were worn by each team member during rec activities, and gave each team a unified banner to rally behind.
Below is an example of the screen-printed shirt blank, onto which the team name and logo would be stenciled
Below is a small collection of images showing the shirts in the process of being stenciled,
as well as images of students with their custom shirts/flags during camp.
