Help my Bad Graphic Design Skills


I’m trying to put together a graphic for an upcoming sermon series, but I have zero skills or training in graphic design.  Here is what I put together so far using GIMP.  Other than the stupidly obvious, like buying the iStockphoto images, do you have any design tips or specific instructions?  Be nice. πŸ™‚



This was my final design.  Everyone pretty much agreed that the first draft was too busy and confusing.  The final design doesn’t “pop” and isn’t really fancy, but it’s better than the first one, right? πŸ™‚

  1. Hey Shawn.I would put the baptism pic top center, the family pic top right, the kids holding the cross pic middle right, find a pic of two young people and put it middle left, the pic of the single girl bottom left, and one of the empty pew pics bottom middle. Then the pictures fit the text a little better, imho.
