Please join us in officially welcoming Grace Carr to the GLBAL media team! Grace is a talented photographer who is passionate about social justice, working with nonprofits and telling the stories of the voiceless. A Carroll County native, she graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography and Imaging Arts. Grace will be a huge addition to our creative team and can be found in the studio, out on assignments, traveling on tours and at live streaming events.
After traveling to Guatemala in June with Lauren Daigle and ChildFund, we were tasked with designing custom booths for the arena concourses, merch for the tour reps and the primary video for the ChildFund presentation. ChildFund had been challenged by the tour to create visuals that were fully integrated with the overall feel and experience of the rest of the tour. After reviewing footage and having an initial planning meeting in Nashville with the team, we quickly got to work on concepts that blended ChildFund’s message of child sponsorship with the bright colors from Lauren Daigle’s new self-titled album. We centered the message under a phrase Lauren said to her sponsored child “You are more than your story and what’s happened to you.” This message helped create a theme that can now be seen across all elements of the night.
Tour Rep Merchandise
The tour staff were presented with cobranded shirts, hats and hoodies to wear at all of the events. We reached out to our friends at Six Stitch to handle the printing and they turned out amazing! The large overprint t-shirts are some of our favorite designs ever.
Event Booth Design
One of the unique challenges of designing booths for a tour is that everything needs to be portable and durable to withstand 6+ months of travel. We designed a 3 banner display with a custom TV road case so the width of the booth could vary depending on how much space was available on the concourse. We also created a video loop with footage from Guatemala to be displayed at each location.
Each night Jeremy shares from stage about ChildFund and his trip to Guatemala with Lauren. We edited a 10 minute video that fills a floor to ceiling screen behind the stage. The content is revealed through paint brush strokes and water color droplets. The final video includes content spanning 4 countries and 16 years of footage.
We hope you can come see all of this in person. Tour dates are available at www.laurendaigle.com
Church Website Design
Renew Movement is a new community based church planting organization that made its debut at Exponential’s Orlando Conference in 2023.

2022 graphic design trends will be marked by bold colors, fonts, and designs that appeal to younger consumers. Keep these new trends in mind and determine how they may fit within your nonprofit’s or company’s designs.
Bright Color Gradients.
Bright color gradients will be used in modern designs to attract younger audiences and are typically associated with tech products. Be on the lookout for the unique ways bold color gradients will make their way into marketing materials and social media in 2022.
The use of multi-color or tie-dye backgrounds has returned for a fun younger feel to designs. 2022 graphic design is all about color and lots of it.
Bold Wavy Fonts.
Closely related to the vintage feel of tie-dye, bold wavy fonts are increasing in popularity replacing the once-standard sans-serif fonts like Helvetica and Gotham. These bold and wavy fonts are eye-catching and have an organic and fun feel.
Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year Very Peri.
The 2022 Pantone Color of the Year is Very Peri. A look at Pantone’s 2022 colors of the year includes the use of muted purples, orange and blue. You can check out Pantone’s fashion color trend report for more. In the blue family, with violet-red undertones, Very Peri will emerge as a color trend in the graphic design space in 2022.

We were happy to work on another project with JFJ and Sons. We have worked with the Felkners for over 5 years. Originally developing the JFJ and Sons website & now this new logo design and brand within their company. This time we created a new brand that is a subdivision within the JFJ and Sons company: Affordable Basement Solutions by JFJ and Sons. Since at times it will operate as a standalone brand it needed its own logo and branding.
We designed the branding, logo design, photography, and video for this new company.
For every branding client we create an accompanying brand guide. A brand guide is a helpful tool for individuals or whole teams to maintain a consistent brand presence. It visually showcases how to use your logos and what your brand fonts and colors are. For larger projects or campaigns we include key directions in wording and copy to use on the website, social media, and when talking about the campaign.
We photographed a recent basement renovation so that they would have photo content for this new brand that they can utilize on their website, social media, and on printed materials.
Check out the video that we filmed and produced in Maryland for Affordable Basement Solutions by JfJ and Sons.
As a part of this larger project, we also designed this custom proposal folder for JFJ and Sons.
The inside pages feature a letter from the owner, high-quality printed images of their work, testimonials from happy customers, and a list of the services that they provide. The folder pockets allow for them to insert custom proposals and information for their customers.

Artists and Attractions hired us for a large graphic design project ranging from a vehicle wrap, to stage mockups, to posters and brochures for a variety of shows that they manage. Artists and Attractions is the representative for several shows within the fair and events industry. We created the following designs for upcoming trade shows and acts that they represent.
We designed a vehicle wrap for the semitrailer for Otter Adventure, which is an interactive water show with otters. We also designed the 3d model layout for the stage that will be created for the show.
Dangerous feats of comedy is a show that features extreme stunts and tricks combined with family-friendly comedy. We designed a brochure to highlight some of their most loved acts and communicate the experience of this particular show.
We created two different size designs for Pompeyo’s Dog Show. A 33×81 retractable banner and an 8×10 pop-up banner. We also created a stage mockup for the Space Adventure show.
We provide a variety of graphic design services for nonprofits, churches, and the entertainment industry.

Today GLBAL media is excited to announce the launch of THIS GIRL, a nonprofit campaign for WorldServe International.
From the beginning, WorldServe International and GLBAL media set out to create a brand that would allow everyone to participate in helping girls thrive.
WorldServe has long recognized that women and girls are disproportionately affected by water scarcity.
If this story resonates with you and you would like to join THIS GIRL, here’s how you can get involved:
Text the words “this girl” to 844-928-4123 to join for $12/month
$12 a month provides a girl with dignity, health, and education. WorldServe International distributes 100% compostable sanitary pads (made locally by women employed at a fair wage!), along with a comprehensive menstrual health curriculum, and undergarments. Without this basic dignity, a girl can miss up to 4 days of school each month!
Our role in the THIS GIRL brand, campaign, and website.
Learn more about our story-first approach to brand identity, graphic design, and campaign development services for nonprofits.
A large portion of the work GLBAL media does is for those in the entertainment and music industry. We have a variety of designs and videos that we have done for upcoming tours starting soon in the fall of 2021. If you’re headed to a show on any of these tours keep an eye out for some of our work: Lauren Daigle, MercyMe, Newsboys, Crowder, I Am They, Danny Gokey and Tauren Wells.
I AM THEY
We created banner designs and a booth display for ChildFund and I AM THEY. Their tour began on September 17th.
The Lauren Daigle and ChildFund tour begins on September 24th. We created a video for the Lauren Daigle tour, on-screen content, a booth display, and the water bottle and letter writing kits for ChildFund’s child sponsorship program. Two of the GLBAL media team members will also be on week one of the Lauren Daigle tour on behalf of ChildFund.
Today we are excited to reveal the new brand and website for Third Culture Thriving!
The Founder, Karli VonHerbulis, is located in Kigali, Rwanda. Karli & Justin Willet have worked together on different creative projects dating back to as early as 2011. Working together on her vision for the brand identity and website for Third Culture Thriving was extra special because of the long history of friendship and collaborative creative efforts.
This project was also very unique since she is located on the other side of the world in a completely opposite time zone. Many times Justin would send off content to be reviewed at the end of his workday and return the following day to Karli’s response because their days and nights are opposite. It added a unique working element since GLBAL media typically works with brands within the continental US.
Third Culture Thriving Story
We loved working to create the brand and website for Third Culture Thriving because of the purpose behind it. Third Culture Thriving is a place to find the resources and encouragement needed to cultivate home in the spaces between nations. Karli took her experiences, both good and hard, as a woman, wife, and mother moving overseas for mission work and turned them into solutions for other families on similar journies.
She shares the story of her experience of the inculturation process, trauma, and self-doubt, which motivated the creation of the resources and community that Third Culture Thriving offers to other missionary individuals and families. Karli says,
“I wanted to create a space where women wouldn’t feel alone, or like everything was out of their control. Where they could come for encouragement and camaraderie, and for practice resources to help them as they journey to create a home in a new place. Where struggling women could be seen, nourished, equipped, and supported in their journeys to thriving, whatever that means in their context. Where they could find hope.”
Through Third Culture Thriving, Karli truly has created a place to find the resources and community you need to thrive right where Christ has called you.
The first step in the process was to create the Third Culture Thriving brand identity. Karli created a mood board on Pinterest where we pulled inspiration for colors and designs.
We then moved into the logo design phase. Karli wanted to incorporate some floral elements, maps, and script fonts. We ended up not only designing the primary logo but additional brand assets as well that were implemented throughout the website.
With the brand identity, logos, and design elements ready then it came time to begin working on the website. Karli had previously built her own website using Squarespace and was looking for a more professional design that could incorporate her branding across all elements.
We incorporated some of her custom design elements as buttons on her site to direct visitors to her pages with various resources.
Watch this video for a quick overview of the Third Culture Thriving website.
The e-commerce aspect needed to include both free and premium downloads that she could control the number of download attempts and length until the link expired.
Another important aspect of the web design process is mobile design. We always design websites so that the mobile experience is cohesive with the desktop experience and optimized for the mobile user experience.

We also had the honor of designing the logo and custom photo frame for Hey, Westminster!

2021 DESIGN TRENDS
Apple’s proposed policy changes announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will impact your personalized ads on Facebook. Facebook Business responded saying, “The changes plan to limit your ability to effectively reach, understand and engage people on mobile devices and across the web. They will impact your ability to understand performance, control who sees your ads and make informed decisions about your advertising budgets. As these changes take effect, over time you may see an overall decrease in ad performance and personalization and an increase in cost per action.”
