My services do not end at the design. I give other options to move your web site further like enrolling it with Google Analytics so that you'd have an idea how your web site is performing on the Internet. Teach you how to advertise or promote your site to increase its SEO (search engine optimization). Plus, if you want to increase your income, how to put ads on your site and join affiliate sites.
The year 2021 marks the Jubilee Year for Christians in the Philippines, to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the coming of Christianity to this humble land. This is 500 years of evangelising the Gospel. It involves nine years of propagation that began in 2013, with a different theme each year. The Church is called to be Saints Together, which means that everyone in the church -- the Pope, the clergy, the religious, down to the community -- together must work and evangelize the Gospel of Christ.
Every year, the Church targets specific sectors such as: Year of the Laity (2014) Year of the Poor (2015) Year of the Eucharist and the Family (2016) Year of the Parish as a Communion of Communities (2017) Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons (2018) Year of the Youth (2019) Year of Ecumenism and Inter-Religious Dialogue (2020)
In 2021, the theme is Missio ad Gentes, which means mission to the nations. This theme completes all the evangelical purposes of the previous years.

From a distance, you can clearly decipher what the design is all about because of the prominent title "Visita Iglesia."
For the background, I used a cropped map of Bulacan, showing only its southern part wherein the seven churches are located. To give emphasis to the names of the Churches, I lighten the colour of the map and all its other elements which are not significant to the purpose of the design. The map, together with the church icons and names, suggest a journey of the pilgrims.
For the reason that the upper portion of the map is irrelevant to the purpose of the design, I covered it with a prominent title. But the title was not enough to hide what isn't necessary. Furthermore, with the title and the map alone, the design looked flat and boring. So, I designed a logo for the a…
A friend has planned to put up an online shopping business. She asked me to design a logo for her. She likes butterfly; she likes red. The business is family's, so I could not make the logo very feminine (in contrast with the first one I did). The business is trading, therefore it involves exchange of goods and money. Thus, the logo has to be professional and reliable.
Above is the all-black version with a tag-line, as requested. The one that follows is the red and black version.
I hope I made all the essential elements present: The name which is the most important. It has to receive the focus for identification, memory retention and recall.The type of business. After some years, the business must have gained popularity and reputation. Thus, the word trading can optionally be removed.The tag line can be optional but it is used here to express a marketing message.The visual symbol, which is the pentagon shape.The butterfly is a personal expression of the owner.
