Project description

We need a background slide image to be used with an upcoming sermon series on the life of Jacob from the biblical passage Genesis 25–35. The series will be called “Jacob.”


Jacob was complicated. He has the reputation of a “deceiver” (the literal meaning of his name), having tricked his older brother Esau out of his birthright (Genesis 25:29–34) and blessing (Genesis 27), and his uncle Laban out of his fortune (Genesis 30:25–43). He was also a questionable father, showing favoritism to his son Joseph (Genesis 37:1–4) and then Benjamin (Genesis 42–43). However, Jacob also had great faith. He wrestled with God (Genesis 32:22–32) and tried to make amends to his brother in his old age (Genesis 33). God blessed him, renamed him Israel, and chose him to be the father of the Jewish nation (Genesis 35). He is a flawed hero of the Judeo-Christian tradition.   


The point of the series (and the message we want the design to communicate) is that Jacob was a flawed hero, and that God was faithful to him despite his flaws. The design does not necessarily have to use any imagery from Genesis, but it can. The design could allude to any of the stories in the Jacob narrative, or it could go in a completely different direction. It doesn’t have to be overtly religious (but it can be). Any design that communicates “flawed hero” or “faithfulness of God” could work. Please look at the examples of work we have used in the past.  


The image should have the title: "Jacob." 


We need three versions of the image: (1) 30 inches wide x 20 inches tall to be displayed from a computer projector onto a wall and then later printed on to wood and hung on a wall, (2) square to be used as album artwork for the podcast, and (3) 3.375 inches wide x 8 inches tall for use on the front of our printed bulletin.


I have attached some examples of work we have used in the past. Please let me know what questions you have!

  • @BelieversFellowship Hi CH Please check my newest entry. Original image and not too overused. Clean,Visible and meaningful. Hope this will give a chance. Thank you and God bless.

  • Thank you for all of your entries. My current favorite is #62. I love the imagery of Jacob wrestling with the angel, and this particular depiction of that scene is my favorite. The vibrant colors, simplicity, and clarity of the image just work really well. The font is also very good. My next two favorites are #85 and #53. #85 also uses the imagery of Jacob wrestling with the angel, and #53 looks a lot like the image we used in our previous Abraham series (see the examples I attached to the brief).

  • One of the most beautiful and important steps to where Jacob and Esau embrace. v. 4 Esau ran to meet him, embraced him, and fell on his neck, kissed him and wept.
    We marvel in front of this miraculous reconciliation expressed so emphatically. Even Luke in the parable of the merciful father uses many verbs (Lk. 15:20). Everything appears forgiven. Esau does not remember the theft of the birthright and his anger, he has become an affectionate brother. This makes us understand that the author of salvation history is a story of "wonders" unexpected, created by God through the availability of some "called", see the patriarchs, becoming instruments of blessing. #100
  • Hope you lie it..:) #81
  • I like this one because it continues the look we had from one of the previous studies on Abraham (see the attached examples). #53
    • About #53, @BelieversFellowship Thank you CH for the feedback. Please check my latest entries. Hope you like it. God bless..


  • About #72, @BelieversFellowship, Depiction of Jacob's ladder. The dark cloudy sky on one part yet almost a clear and less cloudy sky on the other side of the image represents the complicated state of his mind.
  • Hi, here's another version. Hope you like it. Thank you. #66
  • Hello, hope you like. Thank you. #65
  • Different design style on this one. #64
  • I like this one. Good colors and fonts. Integrates the story of Jacob wrestling with God. #62
    • About #62, @BelieversFellowship thank you for the feedback, will be creating some more later tonight.

  • I like the simplicity of this one. I also like the look on Jacob's face--it could be interpreted as focused or menacing. #42
    • @BelieversFellowship Very pleased to hear from you. Thank you sir, for your positive feedback. I'll submit some more designs shortly.

  • This is Admin Sharie, DID you read the brief for this contest? Why are you submitting some kind of joke or parody about this clients Faith? I strongly suggest you read the brief again to get a better understanding of the client is looking for. #1
    • @sharie But tell me one thing, what will be the text on the banner? Only Jacob?

    • @jaswantsinghnegi85 I am not the contestholder, you need to post question to the contesholder about this Thank you

    • @jaswantsinghnegi85 Yes, the only copy on the design should be "Jacob". Great question!

  • Also a neat depiction of Jacob's ladder. #50
