We had the opportunity to work on Mountain Street Media‘s (MSM) new book “A Church Music Director’s Handbook. We handled designing the cover, and typesetting the contents, producing two versions of each. One for print and one for screen view as an eBook.
Towards the middle of last year (2015) we at Open Box Technology started thinking about building our own website. As a company that builds websites for other people there was a lot riding on this project! We met to discuss our plans and identified ways our website needed to function.
Firstly, the website is a business tool, allowing people to learn about our work and contact us. Secondly, the website is effectively a demo site showcasing our web design and development work.
Growing Global Churches (GGC) is a ministry helping grow the local churches involvement in global mission. They help pastors and churches who want to grow their involvement in God’s global mission by inspiring, facilitating, resourcing and mentoring them in order to develop a culture of mission within their church.
Open Box Technology (OBT) has been working with GGC to help them visually communicate in a way which is honest and appealing.
We started with a graphic mark that suggests movement like that of ripples spreading across a globe. This brings to mind the global spread of the gospel, a core part of what GGC is trying to achieve. The graphic mark incorporates the initials of the organisation while the complete logo also includes the words “Growing Global Churches”. Both the graphic alone and the complete logo have been implemented as a black version, a colour version and a white version.
Open Box Technology designs, hosts and manages websites for a range of Churches and other organisations. We have looked after websites from initial planing through to implementation, or jumped in to help at a specific point – whether that’s design, managing hosting and domains, or consulting on any other part of the process.
