For this year’s FBTeen Crusade, the youth pastor wanted to play off the upcoming Marvel movie, Civil War as the theme for the crusades. It was a perfect idea, since the Teen Crusades are a glorified Vacation Bible School for teens with tons of competitions, teams, and games. The youth pastor was hoping that I could come up with a logo, a task I readily accepted.
My biggest regret was not screen capturing the process for this logo and poster, since I started completely from scratch. There was no single tutorial for me to follow this year, unlike the Panama missions trip logo, so I had to rely on what I’ve learned from experience and random YouTube videos. The other challenge was my Photoshop is woefully out of date (CS3) and I didn’t have access to the 3D modeling newer software updates give users, so the “Civil War” words had to be faked into looking like a 3D image.
The poster itself ended up being thirty-seven Photoshop layers and probably one of the biggest design projects to date.
