In the last year I typically have seen in church flyer design be either an abstraction or a rock concert. Here’s how I designed for our Church’s Christmas services this year.
I was born in the 1980s – to a child of the 80s, what single object represents time travel best? You might say it’s the phone box from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure but I’d say nobody remembers that movie and that’s what makes Keanu so sad. It’s definitely the Flux Capacitor from Back To […]
Over the years I’ve made a few church Christmas flyer designs for St Phils. Over that time, I’ve seen the most popular service for Christmas move from the morning of Christmas day to a Christmas Eve service that is hugely popular with busy people who have lots to do on Christmas day.

In January each year, my church runs a week long camp for school years 6 – 12 kids called Full On. It’s known to be as much fun for the leaders as it is for the kids, and with a ratio of almost 1:2 leaders to kids, it’s a pretty sweet deal. It has been […]

Why You Are Here. Why You Are Here. I like the visual pun with this image. I’m still working on it, I think it keeps the eye moving around nicely.
I usually dislike Christian ripoffs. In fact, I squirm every time I see them. So I came up with the brilliant ripping off an idea from Facebook and printing a ‘status update from Jesus’. I think I had seen parodies of Jesus & Judas on Facebook so I thought it might be funny. I wanted […]
Some of my favourite work is for my church. Thanks to a lack of swarms of professional designers and marketers in the church I am often left to come up with themes and ideas for church promotions (a drawback is not always having someone to collaborate with). One of my favourites over the last few […]
