Can you create one unique and timeless image to represent IPC's mission, its ministries and its members all while honoring its history and looking forward? That was the mission of a special communications task force over the last year. The team interviewed several local brand consulting companies and one from Georgia before hiring Modern Brand owned by IPC member Michael Bell.
The Birmingham-based company sought to "explore different marks across architecture, faith, and nature." The goal was to find one logo encompassing two of those areas. But after months of research, a church visit, review of the strategic plan, and sketches, a new logo was created incorporating all four areas. It was approved by the task force and presented to the Session. The new design will replace the one pictured. Look for it online and on IPC publications in the New Year.
Task force members: Barry DeLozier (chair), Gina Boyd, Margaret Brunstad, Cindy Cantley, Catherine Gregory, Jeanne Monk. Staff: Honora Gathings, David Seamon, Rev. Lucy Turner.
