UCH: Uniting Church and Home

PRINT: Branding, logo 

WEB: E-commerce website


The UCH Institute seeks to unite the church and the home as a community of Gospel transformation. Their vision is to see the church and the home unite as a community of Gospel transformation by assisting church, home, and denominational leaders in restoring God’s ministry blueprint by helping them plan, communicate, and use this blueprint in their churches and homes. 

The client had an existing site that no longer met the needs of their expanding ministry. They were also lacking a logo that expressed their brand effectively. We worked with them to create a look, and functionality, that met their needs now and because it is fully editable and scalable, will continue to help grow their ministry into the future.

The U Rock Box

PRINT:  Branding, series of postcards, packaging, banners, car decal

WEB: E-commerce website, mobile app (in development) 


A client we have worked with for several years had a daughter heading off to college and out of a desire to send amazing care packages with an inspirational twist, an unfilled niche was discovered and a dream was born:

The U Rock Box is a faith based business, that all began when my daughter went off to college.  I wanted to send her a monthly themed care package that she would be stoked to get.  I wanted her to "feel the love" ....all the way from home.   After searching and searching online....they all seemed the same and none had that "U ROCK" wow factor that I was looking for.  In that moment of frustration, The U Rock Box was dreamed up and so we decided to take it a step further.  We've put a cool spin on the "typical" care packages by including a funky designed postcard with a powerful and encouraging message and a relevant scripture.”  Pam Brown, owner: The U Rock Box

The first round of designs was met with some enthusiasm: “RACHEL....wish you could see me JUMPING for JOY at this moment...I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it just as it is!”

I would like to say this is always the response my initial design comps illicit…

All the postcard variations on the original theme have been fun, and came very easily, as well. I credit a confident client with a clear vision for her product -- and the good working relationship we have developed that helps me catch that vision quickly. 

The next phase was taking the designs live on the web in a responsive design, e-commerce solution.

The last step will be the development of a mobile app.

Stay tuned.
