The Collaboration Theme 2016 at The Hub has been chosen!

Theme Scripture

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”      Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Theme Focus

Teach the Truth of God through His Word so that the heart of His people will be transformed

Theme Tagline

Transforming Hearts With God’s Truth

Now, we must decide how that theme will be represented as a graphic design. We are opening this part up to all the members of PWOCs everywhere.  We need your help!!   The body needs your unique skill and talent now!

For the next three weeks, consider the processing of the theme found at The Collaboration Theme Page and create a visual representation of the Theme Focus, Scripture, and Tagline.  Please submit all graphics to the Hub email by Sunday, April 24th, 2016.  We will then take a few days for the ladies of PWOC to choose from all the graphics submitted.  Get your creative skills workin’!!

Please submit the graphic in JPG or PNG form. Save your creative files for use with the graphic if it is chosen later. (i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator)

Are You A Thinker and Not A Graphics Person?

Not to worry!!  If you’re not a designer and you have some ideas about what “things” might represent the Collaborated Theme, you can still help. Post some of your thoughts back on the Hub facebook page .  This post will be pinned to the top.  You will inspire those who can take your thoughts and make them come alive on the page.

Two elements to consider: Is it legal? Is it easy to use?

Legal?

There are many questions that arise when using images, songs, … especially in the realm of ministry and on the internet.

If it is on the web who owns it? Can I use it? Can I make changes to it? Can I copy an idea, thought, picture, song…all important and good questions to consider not just for integrity, but legality?

Here are two resources that might be helpful to understand the basics of using images, music, video…

Useable?

Have you considered the end user?

Often a local PWOC will use the logo for a variety of purposes. And most of the time a local group will add their name to the logo.  Does it’s shape and size easily fit to several venues, i.e. coffee mugs, t-shirts, notebook covers, etc.   When choosing typography in design consider selecting one that is free to download. This will help groups maintain consistency in the image and provide greater use and flexibility.

Lastly, when you submit a logo to The Hub at PWOC you are giving this site, and its users the right to use, re-use, publish, re-publish in whole or in part, for editorial, commercial, promotional, and/or trade purposes. You are also waiving any right to inspect or approve any copy that is used in connection with the artwork.
