We are a kids church, we hold multiple church services for children's ranges of 3- 5 years old, 1st through 3rd grade, and 4th - 5th grade. Our numbers range over 500 kids every sunday with over 400 volunteers. Our services engage them on their level -- we have ditched the felt boards and duck-duck goose -- multimedia presentations, live music, high energy games and hands on learning environment is the norm, not necessarily what you would think of at your traditional church or sunday school class. We want our design to be as captivating as we are. The XD is for extreme disciples.
We host a wide variety of ages ranges when it comes what engages them on their level. From Barney and 3-2-1 Penguins to YuGiUh! and iCarly. Ages 3 to 12 is our typical demographic. However the design needs to be specifically targeted primarily for ages 9-11 then secondly for the parents (mid-30ish) of the children, that they themselves would find interest in what their kids are enjoying. Ideally we want the children to know that learning is fun, exciting, and relevant.
We are looking for a logo and typeface or logotype, something worth registering!
1. Needs to be bright, bold, and potentially colorful having the ability to stand out even if it has to be monochromatic or grayscale. (for promotional purposes: t-shirts, stickers/decals, etc.)
2. Low to zero serif
3. Don't think church!
Feel free to be creative as possible, if you have an idea that might be outside of the guidelines but is totally stellar, go for it.
3. extreme disciples does not need to be in it
