GCD: FORGE [Branding]

We have crazy friends who start entire ministry’s while they are still in college. Somewhere between the 2am-6am slot they must find time to invest in it because in between class, studying, eating, sleeping and having a life… I don’t know how they fit it all in? But, this is not your average “church”.

Welcome to the Forge Community.

Devoted to being The Church, the Forge is a training ground where faith is put into action on a daily basis. It’s vision is to equip Christian believers in a holistic lifestyle through discipleship and life-skill training. Creating a culture founded on a daily choice to live; school, work, finances, and relationships, through an intentional faith-walk; the Forge, is an organic community where what they “do” becomes an extension of who they are, and who they are is rooted in a daily relationship with God.

Logo Variations:

Using simple forms the mark is created from traditional tribal icons. The layers of lines represent structure and the idea of inward growth. The marks motion conveys a since of purpose and speaks to the transformational change of the whole person (mind, body, and spirit). The icon itself could be a steeple or a bird finding it’s wings; either way, it remains “spiritual” without using typical Christian iconography. Similar to an army badge there is a since of accomplishment in the strength and outline style of the mark. It is representative of a group of people coming together. Displaying the continual process of life and faith becoming one. Symbolic of a healthy, holistic individual.


Stationery & Leave Behind Card:


Often times clients cannot afford a custom website design. Instead, we work with them to find a web template that further establishes their brand as a more cost-effect solution. By starting with a preexisting template it allows us to cut programming and design time in half and provides a foundation on which to build a somewhat custom site. With a little bit of programming and client-guidance we we’re able to help them customize their site to meet their initial needs and develop a platform that they can continue to grow from.

Additional Collateral Materials:

We enjoyed getting to share our thoughts and ideas with this fun group of people. They really let us into their home and their life so that we could create a brand that reflected their true personality. We look forward to visiting sometime when it’s not just “business” and we can truly just hang out.
