100 Verses One Heart - 9/100 Designers


1. Introduce yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?

My name is Jolanda Barbier, 22 years old. I'm currently working at a certain design studio in Jakarta as a graphic designer and I have my own business that also relates to design world.
 
At my spare times, I usually go try new places, chilling at a coffee shop, visiting art spaces or exhibition, doing some handlettering, and sometimes I bake.



2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).

The verse I designed Eph.2:8 and if I got the chance to do this again, I'll do Hebrew 6:19, or Luke 19:10

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.
The process was to read the verse, paying attention to the words in the verse, and then deciding if I should put all of them in my design. After that, choosing the typeface, the fitting elements, and still keeping it all simple, so that the verse stay as the main attention.


4. What inspires your design?
Handlettering; but unfortunately for this one's verse, i don't get the chance to use my own personal handlettering, perhaps in another 100versesoneheart project :p ?
 
Jessica Hische and Sagmeister inspire me so much for more creative ideas.
for design style I prefer clean international style, and postmodernism & retro for the colour palette, yet I love Andy Warhol's pop art movement.

5. Where can we find you?
You could check out my portfolio on behance : be.net/jolandabarbier
 
 or simply by following my instagram account @jolandabarbier

6. Other comments or message you would like to share to everyone?
Use your skills and talents for the glory of God. It's not always about doing something at church, or joining the Christian Communities around us, but in everything that we do, we do it gratefully, and always give our best; that is the best way to serve God.

100 Verses One Heart - 8/100 Designers

 

1. Introduce yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?

I’m Sui Yao, a visual designer. Working in W+K Shanghai as a designer.  Can’t stop trying new stuff, anything, as long as it pull my trigger. But if you just look at my photo you might  think "She’s a hipster~”
( Photo are from another project I’ve been working on~)



2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self- discipline. If I need to choose again, I’ll pick "Matthew 6:34  So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”


3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.
I did quite a lot sketches for this project. I’ve been trying different kinds of way to do the typography. See if I can combine these multiple style in the same visual.

4. What inspires your design?
I make, I create with a sparking mood. Learning from art and the history of it since a child. Figuring out how to drive more artistic input into personal design and creative area.

5. Where can we find you?

100 Verses One Heart - 7/100 Designers

 

1. Introduce yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?

My name is Terri Dickerson.  I am a 35 year old wife and mom of three wonderful boys.  I was a high school choir director for seven years but I quit to stay home with my boys and now I homeschool them.  I opened up an etsy shop almost three years ago on a whim.  I honestly didn't know if anyone would even buy anything I made.  To my surprise, it has kept me busier than I ever anticipated.  In my free time, I love reading, singing, and shopping.

2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).

I was so thrilled to be a part of the 100verses project!  When I was asked, I just said that they could use whatever design they would like from my shop.  The one that was selected was from one of my favorite books of the Bible...James. "Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17.  This is a wonderful verse to help you though good times and bad times because God is in control over them all.  He allows everything to happen for a reason, for our good in order to make us into who He wants us to be.  He doesn't change like shifting shadows.

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.
My design for this one was all done on the computer.  There wasn't any sketching on this one, just photoshop.

4. What inspires your design?
I get design inspiration from everywhere, from magazine ads, to color schemes on a card that I pass by in a store, billboards.  I love to look at fonts and design layouts even on a menu.  I feel a little nerdy that I analyze fonts and layouts, but I can't control myself.  The wording is inspired by of course Scripture, sermons, and song lyrics.

5. Where can we find you?

6. Other comments or message you would like to share to everyone?
I started this shop with hopes to glorify God in all that I do.  Deuteronomy 6:6-9 says, these words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.  You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.  You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."  I'd like to use my shop to help add Scripture in a beautiful way on the "doorposts" or walls in homes as a daily reminder of God's divine presence.
My desire... "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.  Erma Bombeck

100 Verses One Heart - 6/100 Designers



1. Introduce yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?

My name is Logan Pyle. I'm a 26 year old designer from Springfield, Missouri. By day I work in accounting, and I do freelance design and filmmaking in the evenings. I've been married for almost four years, and have a 15 month old son. Most of my time is spent working, and the time that isn't is typically devoted to my family.

2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).

I chose 2 Corinthians 5:21 for my 100verses piece: "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." I changed the wording around a tiny bit, but I think the piece is still true to the text. This verse has been precious to me for as long as I've been a believer. Jesus died in my place to atone for my sin, and in turn gave me his own righteousness, holiness, and purity. That's the very essence of the gospel, and that's why I chose the text. If I were to choose another verse I would choose Romans 8:28. It's one of my favorite verses of my favorite chapters of my favorite books of the Bible. Either that or John 11:35.

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.



Once I chose my verse, I started drawing. In the style that I did this piece, I typically draw it several times (at least 15-20) to get it exactly how I want it. It was more of a free-hand style, so I wasn't as structured with rules and guides as I'd typically be with other styles of hand-lettering. I wanted it to have a very human-feel to it. After I'm finished drawing, I scan everything into Illustrator and create vector art so I can play with the letterforms and arrange everything exactly how I want it.

4. What inspires your design?
I design because I was designed, and I think that's beautiful. Our God is the creator of everything, and he designed how it would all look and function and feel. That's why I design. I want to be able to create art that is points clearly and directly to the God I love, his Word, and his work, without sacrificing artistic integrity and aesthetic excellence.

5. Where can we find you?
I'm @loganpyle on both Instagram and Twitter if you want to connect! I love what social networking can do for the artistic community.

6. Other comments or message you would like to share to everyone?
I'm super thankful to have been invited to work on a project like 100verses. The Scriptures are beautiful, and the power of God for salvation. Being able to see SO many ridiculously-talented artists create pieces that reflect that beauty is overwhelming.

100 Verses One Heart - 5/100 Designers



1. Introduces yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?
My name is Kyle Barrett and I’m a 24 year old freelance designer living in Chattanooga, TN. After working for a stint at a web agency in Chattanooga, I set out to freelance full time about a year and a half ago. In addition to my freelance work, I work as the primary designer at my church.
In my free time, I'm a small group leader for a group of 8th and 9th grade guys in the student ministry at my church, which is always fun. Aside from that, I love playing music, hanging out with an awesome group of friends, watching (usually too much) Netflix, reading, and making a good cup of coffee.

2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).
I designed Romans 6:11: “In the same way count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” I love the book of Romans in general because it provides so much insight into our lives as followers of Christ, and that verse has always been encouraging to me.
If I chose another verse for a second edition, it would probably be 1 Peter 2:9. One of my favorites for sure.

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.


I worked on the typesetting of my verse all in one evening after a day of work and my initial process was limited solely to Illustrator (no sketch beforehand). The verse is set in a customized version of Chivo and Nimbus Sans. You can see my iterative process in this screenshot (insert attached photo). After setting the verse and spacing everything out, I sheared the text in Illustrator and applied the gradient and final touches in Photoshop.
In working through the typesetting, I prepared an alternate version that’s currently featured on Jonathan Ogden’s Typographic verse blog (http://typographicverses.com —  photo attached). Additionally, I did a small run of 25 screen printed posters that I’ve sold mostly locally (photo attached).

4. What inspires your design?
My relationship with Jesus is the biggest inspiration. I tend to be the most excited about opportunities to echo what the Lord is doing in my life through design. Music (and associated packaging) is also a huge inspiration as it really has a pull on my style.
More practically, I keep up with a lot of great designers (a good number of them were also part of this project!) through Twitter and Dribbble and glean a lot of inspiration from what they do. I think it’s important to surround yourself with strong design as an inspiration, but not as a comparison to yourself.

6. Other comments or message you would like to share to everyone?
I’m really honored to have been included in this amazing group of designers for the first year of this project! It’s been great to find some amazing talent and see God glorified through something like this. Can’t wait to see where this goes in the future!

100 Verses One Heart - 4/100 Designers


1. Introduces yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?

I'm Cymone Wilder! I'm currently living at the tender age of 21! I'm a student finishing up my last year in school! I have four jobs! I work as a graphic designer and photographer for two marketing departments on campus! I also design for the library on campus! On top of all that, I freelance on the side! When I have spare time I enjoy having deep talks with my friends!



2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).
I did Isaiah 41:10! This verse is like a blanket of comfort in a stormy season! I would love to design 2 Corinthians 12:9! It's a bit long but it's got some good stuff to stay!

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses. Also can share some draft photos or some sketches to illustrate the process if you have any.
My process is pretty simple. I sketch something up (usually in a couple takes), hobo scan it (take a picture with my phone), and overlay over a photo a lot of times! Here's a link to my sketch process video: https://vimeo.com/101259976

4. What inspires your design?
My main goal when I design is to honor God in what I'm sharing. For some reason that's been tricky for some Christians in the past. There's a lot of cheesy christian art out there, and I love to break the mold!

100 Verses One Heart - 3/100 Designers



1. Introduce yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?

Hello! I'm Andrew Hochradel. I'm a 25 year old designer working in Southern California. I am the Lead Designer at Sandals Church, Professor of Design history at California Baptist University, and part time freelancer. I am an avid poster collector and have a special place in my heart for Industrial Revolution Era design.

2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).

I chose Lamentations 3:30. "The Worst is Never The Worst". It's from The Message and to me, it's the most simple, to the point, and reassuring passage in the Bible. It's a stark and bold reminder that regardless of what's happening, the worst is never the worst. Simple and Succinct. There are no caveats, no exceptions. It is truth with no refuting. If there was a second round, I would need to take some more time to consider, but I would love to do something from Genesis speaking about creation.

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.
While creating this piece, I knew that I wanted it to be stark and bold. I was intentional about texture to make sure that it looked like it was coming from a broken place and that there was a person behind it. Almost as if someone had printed it on a wall in a cry for reassurance. I wanted it to be a bold reminder that the worst is never the worst and designed it to pay homage to propaganda posters. In my mind, as I was designing, I saw it wheat pasted side by side on a back ally somewhere on a rainy night. I started by creating the type that I was going to use from scratch. I developed a typeface that was just the right amount of wrong. I wanted it to look like some characters didn't quite fit and the spacing and letter sizing was a bit off while maintaining an overall visual balance. After the type was completed, it was texture texture texture. I usually try to avoid color and use different texture densities and values to convey shadows or importance. It was the main goal to be clear and almost a bold punch in the face when seeing the card.


4. What inspires your design?
I'm incredibly inspired by Industrial Revolution Era design. There is something about the raw grittiness of it that speaks to a special broken piece of me. When I design, I really am trying to create a piece in a world that I would love to escape to. I am inspired by short phrases that have a strong and poignant message. The tonal contrast and bold values of working in black and white help to convey a sense of urgency. Some modern day designers that I'm inspired by are Dan Cassaro, James White, and Jon Contino.

5. Where can we find you?

100 Verses One Heart - 2/100 Designers



1. Introduce yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?
My name is Giovanni Marsela, age 20, a designer from Indonesia now pursuing bachelor degree in Professional Design.

At my free time I usually do doodles and lettering.



2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).
The verse that I did was 'Praise the Lord O my soul! do not forget all His kind deeds' - Psalms 103:2.

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.
The process of making this verse was brainstorming the idea of locating the lettering then choosing colors. I chose green cause it brings positiveness and suitable for the verse.

4. What inspires your design?
My inspiration is combining the touch of pastel color in modern design.

5. Where can we find you?

100 Verses One Heart - 1/100 Designers



1. Introduce yourself, name, age, what do work as, what do you like to do during your free time?


My name is Joseph Rey Velasquez from Manila, Philippines. I'm a 25 year-old designer, illustrator, and art director currently juggling two jobs, one at a creative studio and the other as an in-house graphic designer in my local Church.

Aside from designing, I enjoy reading novels, comic books, staying at coffee shops, and meaningful conversations with my small circle of friends. :)

2. Which verse you did? And why? If you could choose to design another verse what would it be (maybe for the 2nd edition for 100verses).

I designed the Psalm 23:1 card ("The Lord is my Shepherd, I have all that I need."). That verse is especially meaningful since Psalm 23 is the very first Bible passage I ever memorized as a kid.

If I could design another verse, it'd either be Philippians 4:13 or my life verse, which is James 2:17. :)

3. Tell us the process of doing the artwork for 100verses.
I've actually been making typographic Bible verses prior to the 100 Verses project, so the design I submitted was based on a previous design I made. I tweaked it a bit then that's what went to the final collection.

4. What inspires your design?

Movement, plus the challenge of putting emphasis on certain words that would be easily remembered by people.

I also love typography and working with a limited color palette; I usually design t-shirts so I try to limit colors to make it easier for the shirt printer to reproduce my designs.

6. Other comments or message you would like to share to everyone?

It's an honor knowing I'm part of a global community of artists willing to use their talents to glorify God. Hopefully more could join, then let's collaborate on other projects! :)

[New Project] Stories For Life



Hello Friends from across the world,

We learnt from our friend – who is working as a human geologist with an indigenous population in Northern Thailand that a flash flood struck the Ban Mai Nai Soi refugee camp (which had an estimated refugee population of 19,512 in 2008) and homes, NGO and CBO buildings, schools, TBC warehouses, roads and bridges were all affected by the flash flood.

News: http://reliefweb.int/report/thailand/flash-flood-ban-mai-nai-soi-camp

25 houses affecting 99 persons were completely destroyed and will need to be rebuilt. Landslides have also created unstable conditions for other houses within the camp which affects a further 44 people. Inhabitants of these unstable dwellings, as well as the aforementioned 25 families, are now staying with friends and relatives.

Amongst them are 118 children who have lost their school. To help them go back to school, we’ve started a new project to raise funds by designing and writing a book.

What’s the project? 
An English storybook for children, with 25 local stories from 25 different countries. Each story will be accompanied with illustrations, in partnership with our designer friends. The book will then go on sale, and funds will be used to procure and deliver 118 “School Starter Packs” to Ban Mai Nai Soi. Additional funds that we receive will be used to support the rebuilding of the school.

What do I need from you? 
A folklore from your country that teaches a positive moral value from these 9 themes: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control). They should be retold in your own words, and not exceed 300 words. New ones are also welcome if the story is compelling. Here’s an example from Paulo Coelho.

What if I can’t write?
You need not be a writer to have a story. I can collaborate with you to produce the story.

What do I get out of this? 
Two free copies of the book delivered to your doorstep, your story, name and country immortalised in print, and lots of thanks from the entire team and the villagers in Ban Mai Nai Soi!

I’m keen. How do I contact you to find out more? 
Email us at hello@actseed.co, and will furnish you with more information, details on how to proceed, and get this started! :D

What if I don’t have a story, but want to support this project? 
You can (1) be a Contributor by donating $10 – and have your name and country imprinted on our page of Special Mentions (link here) (2) share this with your friends – who knows, they might have a story! (3) buy our book, when it’s out!


We’ll be posting updates on Facebook, so follow Actseed.co on Facebook, for the latest updates. :)

 

Thank You!

Dawn
