LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Wheat Street Baptist Church is a historical (140 years old) House of God located in the heart of the Sweet Auburn - Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic Site and Preservation District of Atlanta, GA. It is one of the nation's oldest African American Churches with our own member created Federal Credit Union. Wheat Street Baptist Church pioneered socio-economic development in the Atlanta's inner-city community by the development of commercial and residential real estate such as; Wheat Street Gardens Apartments, Wheat Street Towers for seniors, and Wheat Street Village. The church also played a majjor role in the civil rights fight, the creation of some of Atlanta's first buusinesses and institutions as well as local politics.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
The church needs a logo that can be easily identified and associated with the church ans it's history. It will be used on stationery, websites, signs, flyers etc.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
The audience is members, visitors, those seeking salvation and those in need of comfort. We want them to think about worship, bible study, biblical teachings as well as the rich history of African-Americans and the progress that we have made due to our faith and traditions.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
The colors that we use are cremson and cream and would like to stay close to those ideas. Currently, we use the Old English font on letterhead and programs.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
There are a few design elements that we would like incorporated into the final logo. They all have signifcance to the church, it's history and it's mission. Those elements include representation of a "brush arbor" (see attached sketch) which is a temporary structure made of small tree limbs and branches to provide shelter for outdoor church services. We also must have the crucifix, the letters WSBC and some representation of wheat. We are open to a crest type logo, but would like to see other concepts as well.
