Crossings Christian School was looking for a new spirit shirt design to show off the knight mascot and create some buzz and identity. One challenge was designing for a print on red and black shirts and utilizing the color of the shirt as one of the design colors without requiring separate screens. This was the result:
I do a lot of the design work for Crossings Christian School. Early in the process of establishing an identity we purposefully didn’t modify the crest or the knight image much. Now that the school is larger and better known and the brand is established we have been branching out a little and doing some cooler stuff.
This is a design for a men’s thermal t-shirt.
This is a design for a shirt for the moms in a the Crossings Christian School booster club to wear at games and spirit functions. They were looking for something with some femininity to it, but still a little funky. The school colors are red, black and white. They chose black shirts becasue they want to apply rhinestones to the design and they show up better on black.
My children attend Crossings Christian School (all 6 of them) and my oldest son was one of the first students in the first class. As the school grew and eventually moved to a larger location, I was approached to design a new logo for the school. There was already a cross element associated with the school, so keeping that, I began to gather elements that would represent the school’s values and heritage. I had in mind to create a simple, iconic logo that was a modernized version of a classical crest. Researching heraldry I decided on a red (Pantone 200), black and white color pallet: red for strength, black for constancy and white for sincerity and peace. The cross element is an adaptation of the passion cross, the historical symbol of Christianity. I chose a shield with a diagonal division called a ‘bend’ because it signifies defense or protection. I made the cross the only element on the shield to represent our belief that Christ is sufficient for all. The motto for the school had already been determined: “Servitudo Deo et Homini” which means “Service to God and man”
