SERMONS AND SERIES
When designing visuals for a service it’s always important that everything feels cohesive. That doesn’t just mean that the color matches, or that the sermon series overlay fits for your screens. It means that everything feels like it belongs. A great way to add that depth to your service is to choose backgrounds with the current sermon series or topic artwork in mind. I’ve been in a service where the theme was in black and white and that theme was carried throughout the church from the foyer to the screens. That depth, that cohesiveness, can really bring an extra layer of involvement and impact to a service. Things you can look at when trying to find that similar feel are color, pattern, shapes, and common elements.
Motion graphics can add depth, variety, and a visual landmark for people as they move through worship. They can add depth and a sense of awe to services. Choosing a great motion can change so much about your service that it makes sense to spend time carefully considering each element. I hope this has helped you identity a few things that you can focus on in your next worship service!
