Expository Sermon Series Graphics

Kent Shaffer —  August 13, 2010

Sometimes designing sermon series graphics can be tough. It’s a design niche riddled with puns, goofiness, and bad art, which is problematic for artists on the hunt for design inspiration.

What you create is a direct result of your inputs.

This is true of everything in life. If you want to be a better designer, surround yourself with the best quality you can find. If you want to worsen or stagnate your skills, surround yourself with subpar work.

Designer Jim LePage is creating some inspiring illustrations for each book of the Bible. His sermon series art is complete up through Hosea. More design candy to come. I find his style and interpretation to be some fresh inspiration for designers creating expository sermon series graphics.

Here are my favorites:

EXODUS

Sermon Series Exodus

NUMBERS

Sermon Series Numbers

JUDGES

Sermon Series Judges

1 SAMUEL

Sermon Series 1 Samuel

NEHEMIAH

Sermon Series Nehemiah

JOB

Sermon Series Job

  5. The photos are very creative and interesting. I like the photos of the Judges (which reflect Samson’s great physical body) and David and Goliath (because it showed that David truly believe in the Lord.

  6. I love this artwork – it’s engaging, well produced and draws out the key themes from the books. Are other churches allowed to use this artwork?

    I recently wrote a related post – ‘14 sites for inspiring sermon series artwork‘.

  7. So I jumped the gun on releasing prints, but Exodus, 1 Samuel, Esther, Job and Daniel ARE available now:
