Realm Church Logo Design and Re-Brand

Realm Church is a new church officially launching fall of 2019. On top of networking, community outreach, and adjusting to a new life in Oakland, CA they had no time to come up an identity or brand for their new church plant. I saw them struggle through a couple different logomark designs so I reached out to see how I could help.

Their message and vision for the church are to be a place where God can permeate all “realm’s” of life. They also talked about how they want to be seen as a loving and comforting church in the community. I knew that I wanted to start with a simple and abstract design that would reflect their mission in the Bay Area. This is where the circles in the mark come in. The representation of “realms” by circles was a natural one that I felt goes well with the overall aesthetic.

The mark is paired with their name in Futura to match the nature of the geometric mark. I started with just sketches of their name and played with how I could incorporate realms as spheres into the design.
