Uplifting Design in New Mexico

Strong. Uplifting. Excellence.

These are some of the words the pastor of First Baptist Church of Los Lunas used in describing what story he wanted the new logo to tell.

He needed something that could tell the story of Christ as well as mean something to the community.

We spent hours talking and learning about the direction the church is headed and the community surrounding it.

Why a new logo? Why does the old one no longer work? What impact should it have on the community around you?

After Q&A’s spanning several meetings, we sketched out a few concepts and decided to try one out digitally.


The result of our intense conversations was this glorious logo.

Not only does the client like it, but he’s had many people use it to explain how the church is built to reflect the light of Christ to the world around them.

After only minor tweaks to the wording and placement, we produced a horizonal version, a reversed usage version and a style guide to be used in ministries throughout the church.

Mugs and Pens

Since first introducing the logo to the church they’ve applied it to mugs and pens, the church van, all their publications and signs.

They’ve created banners they’ve used at local events (like the recent Chile Festival in New Mexico), and even now on an old communion table brought back to life.

The church members hand the card out with a handsome tip when they visit local restaurants and send people to their Facebook page to see the upcoming events. In all, it works for them in every facet of their ministries. Why? Because we took the time to really listen.

What to Wear for Video Shoots

What Will Show on Camera?

For interview or documentary-style shots, what you wear below the waist isn’t as important, since it won’t get as much time on screen.

Now, if you’re doing action shots, full-body shots, or aerials, you need to pay equal attention to what you wear on top and on bottom. Try out your moves in front of a mirror first. See how the clothing reacts to your movement.

Give Yourself Options

Bring three different tops you like. You definitely want to have easy options in case one of your tops doesn’t work. Choose a variety of colors in case you end up shooting against different backgrounds.

Funny Videos Mean Business

Have a sense of humor with your videos

Your business isn’t boring. Why should your commercial or video campaign be boring?

Many times when we brainstorm video projects with clients, they usually start with the “safe” options. The problem? People forget safe. No one remembers normal. Boring won’t convince anyone to buy.

You need to stand out. But how? Check out some great examples of out-of-the-box videos to get your creative juices flowing.
