Testimonial | Pastor Taylor Hodges

“Lauren was great. We needed a website quick! She went to work developing ideas and putting things together for our church fast. We started from scratch. Her ideas for logos were targeted to who we are as a church and to the image we want to project to our community. 

Working with Lauren was a joy. Her response time was really fast and she encouraged questions and provided options. All through the development process Lauren was there to guide us. 

Education is part of what Lauren does. She helped us understand not only what our options were but how it would work on the website and what it would look like to our viewers. She taught us about integration with social media and set all of that up for us as part of her work. 

I recommend Lauren to my friends who are looking to rebrand or begin a new website.”

Church Logo Design

Church Logo Design

The client wanted a clean contemporary design with a touch of traditional religious references. During our branding discussion, it was clear the logo needed to represent the church’s passions and beliefs. The logo also needed to have rich meaning and symbolism.

The Harvest Light Baptist Church logo depicts a cross within threshed wheat. It symbolizes that Jesus, the cross, is the center of the Harvest. From the center, He radiates the bounty that is offered to all. The red drop, pointing toward the heavens, at the top of the logo symbolizes the blood of Jesus. “...No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”Just as rain provides life, the blood of Jesus provides eternal life.
