Project description

We need a background slide image to be used with an upcoming sermon series on the life of Joseph from the biblical passage Genesis 37–50 (the guy with the coat of many colors; not the earthly father of Jesus). The series will be called “Joseph.”


Joseph had a difficult life. Time and again he did the right thing and time and again he suffered. From being sold into slavery by his own brothers to being thrown in prison by refusing the advances of Potiphar’s wife, life consistently dealt Joseph a bad hand. And yet, by the end of the story Joseph is second-in-command over all of Egypt and he saves his family from a famine. After reconciling with his brothers, Joseph famously tells them regarding their selling him into slavery, “You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good.” (Genesis 50:20)  


The point of the series (and the message we want the design to communicate) is that God can use hardship to form us and can work it for good. We don’t always see the plan in our suffering, but not all suffering is tragic.


The design does not necessarily have to use imagery from the Bible, but it can. The design could allude to the Joseph narrative, or it could go in a completely different direction. (I have included previous contest winners for series we did on “Abraham” and “Jacob.”) If you choose to feature a scene from the life of Joseph, we would prefer to use an image from later in Joseph’s life, such as when he pardons his brothers. Again, this is not a requirement. The design does not have to be overtly religious (but it can be). Any design that communicates “God has a plan in suffering” or “suffering can have a purpose” could work. Please look at the examples of work we have used in the past.  


One specific idea that might be neat (but you do not have to use this) is the image of a chain. The “chain” of events in Joseph’s life put him in position to save his family. But that chain of events involved him wearing literal chains as a prisoner. If you can work a chain into the design (perhaps as a logo with the title font), that would be a plus.


The image should have the title: "Joseph." 


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!

  • Hi, good day.. I am very sorry about my previous design, It was being remove because it was invalid for some reason but still I made another revision which is a unique revision and has explanation. Could you see entry #218. Its about slavery, the "Chain", days of starvation, the "Dry Land" and a God's plan for him through vision of his dream to become the right hand of the king, the "Wheat". This things will lead also to his brothers to see them again. I hope you like this. God bless to you and thank you so much for having me as one of your choice :)

    • @TP_Rentillo Hello! I saw your revisions briefly, but I don't see them posted any more. Did you take them down? Also, my biggest question about your design is what it would look like in the other two dimensions (specifically 3.375 inches x 8 inches). I really like your work, but I would need to see the 3.375 x 8 to make a decision. Thanks again for your work and your submissions!
