Maybe I’ve just not looked hard enough but I’ve yet to come across a social media channel for a local church, or even it’s national parent organisation, that has a decent grasp of social media. And certainly not any grasp of the power of graphic design.
The above example is a quote I like from Proverbs. I used a funky, youthful font in a summery yellow, against a pic of friends. I let the text fill the image to really stand out too. I tried a few variations in colour tone, mainly in blues and greens but settled on the warmer tone here.
I’m not particularly religious but the last time I went along to a service at the local Church of Scotland, the congregation was definitely more of the silver surfer variety. Membership of the church is falling and the UK as a whole is a secular country.
Anyway…I’m sure a wee graphic knocked out on Canva isn’t going to change the picture but I can guarantee it’d be a positive starting point.
