Keep it simple. Clarity in communication involves simplicity. This kind of divine simplicity is difficult to accomplish.
The human mind is wired to respond to visual clues and information. Think body language, pie charts, photos on the cover of Time magazine. And the best responses come from clean, intuitive designs. We pretty much do it all.
Film: interviews, promos, aerial work.
Motion Graphics: Branded graphics, motion design, and typographic pieces.
Design: pretty much anything.
Film, Motion Graphics, and Design: a powerhouse when used together. Take advantage of one or all three. Motion, film, and design that makes you think—without you knowing it. Subtlety at its finest.
Keep it simple. Write and design for quick comprehension.

Fasting as a Family by Melissa Naasko: is it a book or a cookbook? Yes and no. Yes. I do not know. The first 80 pages or so are divided into six chapters and read like a book.

A key aspect of how Eastern Orthodox Christians celebrate any liturgical feast is in our preparation for the feast. The liturgical cycle is such that it helps us live our Christian lives by constant remembrance (anamnesis) of events—and preparation for events—in the life of the Church. In the Orthodox Church, the Liturgical New Year is celebrated on[…]
