Formation Building Campaign Identity for St. Margaret's Church of Annapolis, MD

St. Margaret's Church of Annapolis, Maryland asked JEB Design, Inc. to help develop their Formation Building Campaign identity. The Church needed to raise $3 million dollars in pledges to start the process of building a new building on their grounds. The structure will house their Day School along with many other community outreach programs.

JEB Design has worked closely with St. Margaret's Church in the past developing New Rector Search Profiles and, in 2006, creating the church's new identity. This was a great honor for us since St. Margaret's Church is an important, historic treasure of Annapolis that dates back to 1692.

Below we showcase the design goal for the Formation Building Campaign's identity. JEB Design needed to visually link the St. Margaret's logo with the previous Day School logo. The Formation committee's goal is that after the fund raising campaign was completed the school would have a solid identity to build upon.

 

We are thrilled to report that, as of today, St. Margaret's has raised $2.75 million and is closing in on the goal of $3 million. The project director, Anne Sessions, says the following:

It's amazing to get this accomplished in 8 weeks!

Maid Marian and Robin Hood go 80's punk! New illustration for Childplay Theatre

Maid Marian and Robin Hood going Punk!

Maid Marion - square compositionBefore there was Katniss of The Hungar Games, there was Maid Marian! This modern 80's punk take on the classic tale of Robin Hood will be performed this Fall at Childsplay of Tempe, AZ. 

After the Play's creative director reviewed Joe Barsin's original illustration of the classic medieval portrayal of Robin Hood (see blog post), he asked for Maid Marian to be illustrated and included. Also, the creative concept of portraying this classic story within a modern 80's theme was requested. 

I love these challenges and taking the illustration to this new direction was great fun. The concept to portray Robin Hood and Maid Marian as 80's punks makes sense when you think that the classic tale was of rebellion in the UK. Robin Hood's inner Billy Idol comes out to play! That being said, this is a play for children so the illustration needed to be age appropriate. I hope you enjoy the work.

Bullseye! "Robin Hood" illustration hits the mark for Children's Theatre

Joe Barsin receives a glowing review for his latest illustration. Childsplay Theatre for Everyone, located in Tempe, Arizona contacted Joe with the need for art to brand their upcoming production of "Robin Hood." The illustration had to be created quickly and within budget. Joe first went to work sketching his concept on paper. After receiving feedback and approval, he completed the final art using Adobe Illustrator. It was a fun and successful process for all involved. Read review below...

Sketch presented to ChildsPlay for approval."I was working on a very tight deadline for my theatre company's season brochure and was in need of an illustrator that could understand my needs quickly and efficiently. I was very lucky to have found Joe through Thumbtack! I put out the request/proposal and received a response in less than 24 hours. I gave Joe a brief synopsis of what I was looking for (one of which was an illustration that could portray ACTION!) and was happy to get a sketch very quickly from Joe. He was incredibly descriptive in telling me about how he imagined the final piece so I could have a full understanding while looking at the sketch. I was lucky that Joe was right-on on his first try and I made no changes to his sketch.

The illustration turned out absolutely beautiful and promotes the play as exciting, inviting and fun! AND Joe was 1 week ahead of his deadline!!.. making my job even easier. I would recommend Joe to anybody or any company looking for an efficient, professional and incredibly talented illustrator. Plus, he was a pleasure to work with!"
