Acacia 2009 Retreat Booklet
Davis Chinese Christian Church
With experience in creating the 1st Acacia Retreat Booklet in 2008, in 2009 I decided to learn some new ways of drawing different elements within Illustrator. I was always intrigued with the glow effect and this was a good opportunity to learn how to do it. The subject of this retreat was "Cultivate Your Faith" and had within it an aura of life and with life, energy. I staged a photo of my friend's hand with a flashlight in the dark and incorporated it into the cover design.

Dividing pages had a flowering artwork and or a color page with the steadily growing plant image as the booklet progressed. Page layout was also minimalistic like the 2008 book to provide space for contemplation and notes.
