What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I'm looking for an educational poster for an upcoming lecture series. I'll enlarge the design, most likely to 48x72 inches (122x183 cm). The exact dimensions aren't critical, as long as I can enlarge it to a good presentation size. The poster will illustrate and explain the following slogan: "Judaism is CORE" C = Civilization O = Of the Jewish People R = Religious E = Evolving The poster should include the full terms of the abbreviation. In other words, it should mention the term "Civilization" and not just C. The poster might also include the more full statement, "Judaism is the evolving religious civilization of the Jewish people." This statement is attributed to Mordecai M. Kaplan, the intellectual founder of the Reconstructionist movement of Judaism. I've attached a 2-page essay further explaining Reconstructionism in light of the four key terms of Kaplan's statement. In the lectures, I will refer to these four terms (civilization, etc) to explain key principles of the Reconstructionist approach to Jewish life. I will point to the four categories of the poster as needed during the lectures. I prefer a design that will look a bit more artistic, and less like a corporate infographic. The poster may use different colors and images to differentiate the four key terms, so that I can easily point to each of them at appropriate times. Helpful images might come from architecture, archaeology, religious symbolism (Tree of Life, Torah, menora, mezzuzah, shabbat candles, etc), Jewish scriptural stories, Hebrew language, etc. In terms of colors, I prefer earth tones and subtle blues, greens and purples, but I'm open to all possibilities. Ideally, we should be able to easily incorporate the Oseh Shalom synagogue logo, a Star of David with an olive branch woven through (see attached illustrator files). We can use the version with the logo in our synagogue, or remove the logo easily for use in other settings. I'm attaching approx. seven samples of posters/designs that I like that I think might offer some useful elements. Also please find attached the two-page essay about the CORE terms, and two versions of my synagogue logo (the Star of David & olive branch). Thanks in advance for your submissions!
