My 3rd overall, low budget church retreat booklet I've created. This one is for my current church after coming back to live in the Bay Area. Cover and posters were printed in color, insides of the booklet were photocopied b&w.
The booklet content came in slow and almost at the last moment so as I waited for that to come from other church members, I started on the poster and cover design you see here which happened to work perfectly for the content. The background design is comprised of multiple images of redwood forests overlaid on top of each other. Glowing "snow" effect gives a feel of the supernatural or spiritual. Wispy lines come directly from my CCA MFA thesis explorations and help direct the eye around the cover as well as frame the title.
