Surprise! Those of us running Box 7 are artists, too. We're picky about the kind of photography and design that we put out there to represent the brand.
As we've been working on the re-launch the ministry, here is our new mission statement:
The inside of Box 7 is being completely designed to empower leaders, who think like missionaries, to accomplish that Gospel mission.
So the main purpose of Box 7 media is to impress on the minds and hearts that the Good News of Jesus is connected to their every day DCI experience and all of life. We want the our website and social media to connect their everyday experience in DCI to the mission of Jesus. (I.E. - we are not just trying to have pretty website that promotes DCI or action shots that will be obsolete with the next uniform change).
We will build out better media for the inside of the ministry first (websites targeted toward leaders, corps staff members, and supporters) and later on build a new public website.
You all probably know what it's like to have an idea for a creative project, but you don't have the anchor piece of art to realize the the project. That's what I (Evan) feel like every time I want to work on Box 7 communications. I'd love your help to solve this problem, and get some of your content broadcasted occasionally to Box 7 audiences at the same time.
