Speaking of Bold Declaratives: Allan Peters’ Blog

Believe: Babies! Bikes!

IMG_4863.JPG-1-04052013A few days back I wrote about the transformative power of saying what we believe (versus saying only what we are against). For some time I’ve been following Allan Peters Blog because it is a smart look into the design world and also sheds light on design in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. I look forward to seeing his work at ArtCrank Saturday.

And there is something else about Mr. Peter’s blog that pulls me in.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Jesus the Christ and I like hearing people chat about their relationship with this One. So speaking of declarations, check out Mr. Peter’s barking bold birth announcement (which won a Silver at the 2012 Adfed “The Show”). Even if religion gives you the willies (it has the same effect on me), check out the artfulness of this announcement: letterpressed into some ritzy paper: click here and scroll down to get a sense of his process.

As an asker/seeker/knocker, I am constantly sorting through out how faith fits with the desire to do good work, even persuasive work in a multi-cultural, multi-voiced world. Part of the answer surely has to be finding artful ways to demonstrate (and say) what we believe. Mr. Peters has accomplished this.
