Closed on Sundays
On this episode of The Yellowbox Podcast Kevin, MJ, and Ale get together to discuss the affects of COVID-19 in the world and in the Body of Christ. Right now we’re all busy exploring what it means to function as the church online and in-person to our neighbors in this time of national crisis. At Yellowbox, we’re keenly aware of the struggles churches are facing as they are forced to adapt quickly. Our team has all been personally involved in assisting our own local churches with updates and projects aimed at moving church forward as options have become limited for meeting in public spaces over the past few days. With this in mind, we have been head down formulating how we can best assist the local church on a larger scale. Check out this episode to hear about the resources we've come out with that we think can help!

It's Not Okay to Steal From Other Churches
On this episode of the podcast Kevin and Tres are double dipping into a topic that we've talked about before and even posed the question, "Is it okay to steal from other churches?" Using inspiration from other churches is normal, but we think it's important to know the "why" behind your own inspired execution of someone else's work. Are you in a busy season and reaching for something to plug the holes in a sinking ship? Or, are you broadening your perspective and looking to challenge yourself creatively, building off an idea that you liked? Stealing creative might not be bad, but stealing and not knowing how to use it is criminal. How can you be respectful of work that has been made that is particularly for an audience, a culture, and tone? And how can you see the influence that a church is making and dissect it to be able to make it personal for your own church culture and community? Listen in for some practical next steps and how-to's for creatives to remix work that's been done while still honoring the intention and heart behind the original creation. Check it out!

Your Logo Isn't Bad, But Maybe It Is.
In our experience, the reality that a logo alone doesn’t make a brand is not a universally understood truth. The language around this topic is seemingly vague in the church world. We’ve seen countless organizations fail to adopt a full brand identity because of budgetary reasons or lack of knowledge on the subject, only to spend more after the fact to get things back on track. In this episode, we discuss the difference between a logo alone and a full brand identity.
