Russ posted this on his tumbler site. It was too good and hit too close to home for me not to share this with you guys…..and girls……and the other demographics.

Every once in a while I run into something that stops me in my tracks and makes me laugh. This was a good example. Unfortunately I didn’t see a link to download it but if anyone finds one let me know. Things like this makes me wish my creativity matched my ambition.

This was in the project brief I got this morning. This is for a consumer brochure for a line of our beans. artdirection.jpg

I make magic happen.

How I Do Work

One of the greatest things about my job other than the fact that I get to create all day, is I can listen to music. Not many people can say that about their job.

I come in, grab my coffee, put on the headphones and jam all day long. Of course there are a few drawbacks to wearing headphones , but believe me, the positives far out weigh the negatives. It’s safe to say that headphones have saved the lives of many of my co-workers more than once. It also has been a safe keeper to my sanity.

If I ever had to get another job, I think I would take a pay cut if it meant I could still wear headphones while I design.

Headphones saves lives!

Not Supposed to.

c28shirt.jpgIn the spirit of Russ‘ latest post and the post he linked to on Collide dealing with what Churches are supposed to do, comes Not Of This World. It highlight another thing that churches aren’t supposed to do. Churches aren’t suppose to create culturally relevant clothing for teenagers and college kids.

These are some of the best designed t-shirts etc. that I have seen in “secular” stores let alone a Christian clothing store. Didn’t anyone tell these guys that Christian shirts are supposed to ridiculously cheese and trite?

These guys have nailed what Joel and I had tried to get going with Sackcloth last year. Although, I will say they are a little on the expensive side but totally worth it.

Here is a little more about C28:

MISSION:

TO GLORIFY GOD BY SHARING THE LIFE CHANGING GOSPEL MESSAGE OF GRACE, TRUTH AND LOVE FOUND IN JESUS CHRIST.
“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark 16:15

VISION:

TO RUN A PROFITABLE & GROWING BUSINESS THAT PROVIDES
THE FINANCES REQUIRED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL!

“The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.” 1 Tim 5:17

MESSAGE:

“See to it that no-one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” Col 2:8

MESSAGE:

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act towards outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.” Colossians 4:2-5

VALUES:

Attitude

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” Col 3:23

Truth

“Simply let your `Yes’ be `Yes’, and your `No’, `No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” Matthew 5:37

Sense of Urgency

“Do you not say, “Four months more and then the harvest?” I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” John 4:35

United in Christ

“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12

Respect

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Eph 4:29

Effectiveness

“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” Proverbs 14:23

Responsibility

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” Luke 16:10

It’s cool to see things like this. I hope to get some wicked awesome stuff from them soon.

A friend of mine posted this. I’ve been wanting to post this forever but kept forgetting. Thanks for the reminder EM. For those of you who have never seen this before, it’s a clip from American Psycho. Notice Batman and the lead singer from 30 seconds to mars. No the cards are not all the same sir!
