Some time ago, Dr. Comfort approached me about working on republishing several books for him. The first one came in this afternoon and it looks great!
I took the Word files that he provided and reworked them in Adobe InDesign for the final layout, researched ISBN and UPC codes, and worked with the printer to make sure that I matched their specifications.
I’m very pleased with how it turned out, and am looking forward to working on the next one.
Pastor Charles Surrett has written a book on the Greek text behind the KJV version of the Bible, and wanted to d to produce a short pamphlet written for the layman on the same subject. He had a tri-fold brochure that he had created in Word, and wanted some suggestions and improvements to make it more appealing.
I ended up completely redesigning the entire brochure, and he was extremely happy with the result. In fact, he ordered nearly three times as many as he had originally planned, and is distributing them to various churches.
Kevin Gilbert wanted to produce a CD, so asked me to handle the entire process. We did the recordings with Ambassador Baptist College’s equipment; after doing the post-production work on the audio, I designed the CD case to make it look as good as he sounds.
As part of my job as Media Services Coordinator at Ambassador Baptist College, I was in charge of the program for Commencement Exercises. Prior to this year, they had been a simple sheet of parchment paper, run on our copier, and folded in half. President Alton Beal wanted something more modern and stylish to better honor the graduates and commemorate this special occasion in their lives. This booklet gives room for a bit more information about graduation and the various awards that are given each year. You see the entire booklet here.
Ben Linville asked me to put together a postcard flyer and several outdoor posters for a children’s rally their church is holding. They had a theme already picked out, and needed something that would appeal to kids and parents alike.
Dan Tarr asked me if I could help him out—he and some friends were holding a week of meetings in downtown Charlotte and needed posters for advertising. He already had a sketched idea of what he wanted, but needed it cleaned up a bit for printing. I was able to help him out, and he was very pleased with the end result.
Faith Baptist Church contacted me about redesigning their website. They wanted something simple that they could maintain without technical coding knowledge.
I was able to develop a new site for them, based on a custom PHP framework and MySQL database, as well as the PageLime CMS, so church staff could easily maintain the site. It also uses Google Calendar for easy updating, as well as my sermon plugin, which pulls all the relevant information from the filename of an MP3 file, allowing the soundboard crew to upload the file and be done with it.
I also integrated their missionaries database with Google Maps, allowing visitors to see where missionaries serve.
Scott had me do the artwork for his self-published CD, as well as the recording and mastering.
It was recorded on the sound system at Ambassador Baptist College, but I was able give it a faux stereo effect for more depth. Listen to a sample below to see what I mean:
The Risinger family wanted custom graduation invitations so they could send nearly a hundred at much lower prices than the official invitations, so they wondered if I could help them out. This was the end result.
This originally was a cassette-tape album, but Pastor Frank Camp asked me to convert it to a CD, clean up the hiss, and design a CD so it could be republished. I figured that since it was a remastered old album, a sepia-tone design would be fitting.
