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!
