Identity and Logo Design
Identity and Logo Design
Designed by diocesan webmaster Cary Molyneux, the logo features three trees, with the trunk of the central figure reaching down, signifying deep roots in Christ. At the same time, the trees are reaching out with dynamic, flame-like branches, signifying our Christian call to reach out to the whole world.
Symbols of strength and life, the trees are coloured green, a colour related to the province of Saskatchewan and illustrating growth, life, springtime and renewal. The three trees, each with three larger central branches, are reminiscent of the Trinity in which each Christian is baptized - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The triad also represents three levels of our faith connection - the universal Catholic Church, the diocese of Saskatoon and the local parish. The group of trees signifies our collective strength as Christian people and parishioners of this diocese, recalling the importance of community, and of working together towards a common vision, rooted in Christ and united in our faith.
Developing and Launching Saint of the Day for Kids App for iOS
This past Friday, myself and three others, launched a new app into the world of iOS. Sandra Molyneux, Erin Lockert, and Sharon Leyne, and I have been working on this app for about a year. This app crosses over into my personal life, as well as business.
Two years ago, my wife and I were trying to teach our kids a little more about the rich history the church has with Saints. Some of the more famous ones come to mind: St. Mary, St. Joseph, St. Christopher, things from my childhood, typical Catholic Saints. Together we couldn't remember much. Since both of us are practicing Catholics, we wanted to share this with our kids. The trouble was, there just wasn't much out there that we found useful for our 3-7 year olds, that wasn't too graphic, too long, or very 'modern'. It was also spread out all over the place, and wasn't easy to keep coming back to. We wanted something handy, something that our kids could play with.
BPW Saskatoon approached me a number of months back with a need for a revamp of their advertising material, specifically their sponsorship package. It wasn't that their material was terribly out of date, it was the just needed a refresh, and it needed to be done quickly. I had a open project slot and so I took it on, in exchange for some advertising time, as well as tickets to their main fundraising banquet. The main international Women's Day dinner is what really impressed me. It was a full house at TCU (a local venue, that seated over 500). Their guest speaker was Mellissa Fung. She spoke about her experience overseas, and how she is not advocating for the women (specifically in Afganistan) to have their rights, their voices heard.
