The Reason for the Season

I just finished a project for Pomona First Baptist Church in Pomona, CA. They are doing a series for Christmas called “The Reason”. It’s about prophecies concerning the coming Messiah, all based in Isaiah 9.

I tried to play with the traditional Christmas present theme while hinting at something a little more epic. I will try to post some more about the process, but here is the graphic.

I’ve been sketching these negative space typography pieces lately, and I wanted to try a few of them as designed pieces.

Since the negative space is part of the design, i can’t really go big on background. I might try adding something later, but for now, I really like the result.

What do you think?
