At the 2016 National Gathering, Jess Fisher led a workshop called “The Medium Is the Message: Good Design for the Church.” Below, you will find the description of her workshop and a PDF of the presentation she used.
Do your ministry’s communication materials match your message? As one theorist said, “the medium is the message.” This is no less true for the church: from the incarnation to the weekly bulletin. We work to bring a clear and accessible message of good news, however, the visual design of our bulletins, screens, and web sites often aren’t effective or even legible. Come explore design theory and get tips and tricks to implement in your setting.
