Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

Word as Image

I’ve really been enjoying Word as Image by Ji Lee, where he demonstrates the possibilities of how letters can convey meaning in creative ways.  Here is how he illustrates Voyeur.

And I love how he illustrates Diet.

Check out this video where you illustrates many other words through creatively working with the letters.

I’ve been thinking about how I might illustrate the title of my upcoming book in a creative way.  Let me know if you come up with something.  The title of my upcoming book is Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World with InterVarsity Press.  It is due out the Summer of 2012 or early Fall of 2012.

    That is punny that there video…good idea…it would be easier to brain storm for me if I had a one sentence summery of your book…or I guess just using the words of the title…hum

    Using word of title…”Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World ”
    Creating could be the word “creating” shaped like a paint brush OR be like it was a garden blooming and each letter a different plant ex being g would be a vine….equipping could be each letter being a different common tool(hand tools).because tool are what we use to equip..this is fun!!..I’ll play with this 🙂

    More Ideas 🙂
    If the ideas in your book are cutting edge or out of the box of what we tend to think you could have on your cover a visual/illistration of a box and your words would be out of the pictured box….or on the cutting edge with an edge illustrated

    If the ideas are to help us be more focused on the things we all ready know then why not have the title like when you go to the eye dr….duplicate the title and eventually bring it into focus the words…good thing today is a play day for me
