Harold is M.I.A!

Funny e-mail that crossed my desk the other day…

To All Who Care About Puppets (and even those of you who don’t):

Harold is missing, last resting place unknown. He is an important member of the Dirty Jacket Gang and the Allaso Ranch Jr. cast.

If you have any knowledge of his whereabouts please call his gang at (#). Picture attached – The purple one in the middle is Harold.

Please, help restore this sweet but clumsy puppet to his gang… they miss him.

Has Harold been lost? Kidnapped? Or worse yet…been sold, recycled and made into a quilt? Can the Dirty Jacket Gang make it without him? Does this signal an outbreak of crime towards all things little?

All serious questions that must be asked when you work in Children’s Ministry!!

Elevate: Roanoke Jones Logo Development Process

I thought you might like to see how we create the logos you see for each Elevate series. This is the development process we went through to get the Roanoke Jones logo.

Step 1 – Different logo concepts were sketched out and we chose the one that fit best.

Step 2 – The sketch was recreated digitally.

Step 3 – More detail was added to the logo and different variations were created.

Step 4 – The best attributes of each variation were merged into the final design.

Step 5 – Texture and shading were added to the design to arrive at the final logo.

I hope you enjoyed this look at our development process. I am very excited about the Roanoke Jones Series and can’t wait for you to see the rest of it!

The fourth “peak” of Elevate has arrived… and Renee Huisinga was the closest to guessing all seven themes. So close, in fact, it was almost scary! Congratulations Renee!

The seven themes are as follows: 

Dojo: Practicing The Right Moves For A Successful Christian Life

The Great Race: Learning To Never Give Up

At The Big Top: The Three-ring Circus Life Of Some Of The Bible’s Most Interesting Characters

Roanoke Jones, Ace Detective: Using The Bible To Solve Life’s Mysteries

Power Up: Learning To Control Your Character

Allaso Ranch: Getting Away And Getting To Know God

Professor Playtime’s Christmas Shop of Wonders: Come Experience The Wonders Of Christmas

These subtitles apply to Elevate; Elevate Jr. will continue to use the same basic themes to teach lessons that are age appropriate for our preschoolers.
