Whilst studying for my Graphic Design Degree at Coventry University, England, I was a member of the Uni Christian Union. Because of my skills, I was asked to design a flyer for a Christian Band named RipCord.
The flyer/pamflet was credit-card sized, with full colour one side and B+W on the reverse. I don’t have an image of the reverse here, but it contained details such as date, time, etc. I remember this design, as it was my first ever piece of printed design work. I think, in all, 5000 were printed and handed out to students at University.
The only brief I was given to come up with a concept was the RipCord logo and “bomb” graphic. I decided to create a concept that utilised a giant ‘rip’ through the design—using the obvious wordplay. Myself and everyone involved in the Christian Union—as well as the band themselves were happy with the design—and it was an honour to do this for the LORD more than anything else.
Have you designed a Christian flyer before? How did it work out? Do you think people were saved because as a direct result of your design?
