Ministers of Reconciliation
Daniel Darling (editor)
For this book on reconciliation, I was hoping to find a concept that would help show the diverse church interacting and recombining into something beautiful—without losing their uniqueness. I cut a single piece of paper into a cross, then sliced it into many shapes and rearranged them into a collage. The fully recomposed cross is featured on the back cover and in the animated cover.
This design struck a chord unanimously with the judges. We wondered “why?” Sometimes it’s just the fundamentals: well executed color, shape, texture that resonate best. Upon a deeper investigation, the collage approach was an appropriate and inventive solution to representing race.
