An article for beginners on the importance of visual image.

The importance of visual design
Its value in a church context and idea of overall impression created by publications, signs, website, etc.

The use of logo's
Non-essential but can be valuable – principles for choice – an exercise.

Consistent design features
The profile created through consistency in the use of print fonts, in colours and in other features, with exercises.

Going to a designer
How to find one, and the principle of telling a designer what you want the design to ‘say’ and ‘do’ for you.

Plus a final warning: is the image you are now creating a true one for your church? You may have consistent features but do you have consistent people?
