The Arts Guild also periodically organizes visits to local artist studios to give guild members a chance learn more about that artist and their craft.
As a member, I was tasked with creating a newsletter for the group. To make it feel more “official,” I decided that we should have at least a simple logo for the masthead of the newsletter. I also design for the church, as a staff member, so I wanted to stick to fonts that I routinely use for various things for the church. To add some visual appeal, I found a stock image that was a set of pens, pencils and brushes. I chose a brush (for visual artists) and a fountain pen (for the writers) and edited them to use the colors of our church’s branding. I crossed them so that they replaced the “t” in “Arts.”
I am pleased with the final result – it strikes a good balance of visual appeal, and communicating the nature of the group.
