Shelter Covenant Church needed a logo to use for any public facing documents, collateral & website. They needed to communicate their three main values: Up, In, & Out.


We really wanted to capture the human feel as following Jesus is all about relationship, messiness & life. We used the paintbrush swirls to communicate a human texture. We used a vibrant color palette to promote life.


A full system from logo to a website was developed. They have been using this logo for the past 7 years, and it is still standing strong.

Up, In, & Out

Shelter Covenant Church is based in Concord, California, in the middle of Todos Santos Park. We were asked to help them with an identity, collateral, and a website to help educate and inform about Shelter’s core values. The website would be used as a super cool tool to show upcoming events, and listen to sermons posted online.

Shelter’s core values revolve around UP with God, IN with the church community, and OUT with the world. It is based off a triangles never ending motion, showing that you are always striving to go from corner to corner.

We wanted to give them a minimal but human identity. We also added some real vibrance and life with the colors we chose. We wanted to hint at the triangle with the shape of the mark, and then just human it up with paint strokes. Rolling out this identity into collateral was super fun, working with colors and textures, it was easy to keep the voice consistent.

The website is a very old website but was utilized heavily by the public to listen to sermons and find events. Even today, the website still holds up, at least on desktop.
