Men of God
The "Men of God" design series was partly inspired by my interest in religious history, in particular the Abrahamic faiths, and an interview where brand specialist Professor Sasha Strauss mentioned that the best book on advertising and branding was the Bible. There is more to it than what I have just mentioned, but it was enough to get me exploring iconic events that transpire in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Quran.
My aim was to take just one image, or one moment, capture it by itself and hope to have secured the story in its fullness. It was tempting to take the easiest route and present moments that are regarded as “too obvious”, I must admit that probably did happen, but I tried my best at all times to steer just slightly to the left of what was to be expected.
I have intentionally left the images nameless, see how many of you know your biblical history. You don’t have to be religious to know them, or appreciate them, at some point or another we have all heard these stories. They have come to us in some shape and form. In whatever language you may speak. They have enthralled us, challenged us, and finally, inspired us.
I hope you al enjoy this first part in my design study in the “Men of God” series.
