about

Iglesia Cristiana, Oasis de Esperanza (Oasis of Hope, Christian Church) is a recently formed church for the Latin community in Brampton, Ontario. It's not very common that I get a request to create a logo for a church. Working with a small budget, I decided to take on this unusual request.

With the only creative limitation that it look Christian, I approached it from a very pragmatic and sensical view. I wanted to avoid clichéd symbols such as the bible, or even an oasis in the desert. In the Christian belief, the healing with hands is a very important aspect of its teaching. And so with that, I designed a logo with hands cupped together holding water, as if drinking from a well or oasis.
