Programmer by day, graphic designer by night

One of the cool things about being part of a small church is that you get to try your hand at a million different things.  Way back in 1991 (when I was 13), my grandfather and I spent many days together making commemorative newsletters for our church’s 100th Anniversary.  In that primitive era of desktop computing, cut and paste involved real rubber cement and a good pair of scissors, but it taught me a lot about layout and spacing and text.

Over the years, home-grown publishing has been a fun hobby of mine, and I’m often enlisted to do fliers and retreat brochures and other random stuff.  And while much of my work is on very short notice and doesn’t exhibit the qualities of “professional design,” I have enjoyed the ability to hone my skills as an amateur graphic designer.

My latest project is an pew envelope for visitors.  I wanted to use the elements of my design for Wyoming’s website header to have a consistent look, and you can see how it turned out.  Next up… business cards.  Comments welcome!
