Reality will be our Theme for our student camp next summer. We are looking for a great logo/text treatment that will be used on print, web, video, and on shirts. We want the letters/shape/design of the word Reality to have personality of the definition of the word.
here is our breakdown of the theme to help you guys build a type treatment/logo that will represent it. Lets try to stay away from any hiking/beach/camping icons.
There is a popular Youtube video where a dad video-taped his son who evidently had been to the dentist and was still under the effects of the sedation he had gotten. The little boy was very funny as he asked the question “is this real?” Sometime we look around and wonder if what we see is real or it’s imagination or an illusion. We watch reality shows on television but the fact is that reality shows aren’t really real because when you look beyond the lens of the camera, there are camera crews and directors and countless other things going on that change the environment such that it’s no longer reality at all. It’s hard to tell a lot of times what is real and what isn’t. We use the word all the time.Really?Get Real. Are you for real?Reality TV.Virtual Reality.I didn’t real-ize. The list is endless. It REALLY is. The dictionary defines reality this way.The state of things as they are rather than as we wish them to be or as they might appear to be. So the question is how do we know what’s real and what isn’t, if indeed we can be so easily fooled. Another question is “if it’s real to someone, then is their perception reality?”When an adult looks back at his time and his thoughts during high school, he often will say that his perception of reality was not accurate at all. It appeared back then that life was all about how your peers saw you, and that life would be awful if you didn’t act a certain way or have a certain set of friends. A few years go by and nothing seems the same at all. You don’t even remember the names of people you were so concerned about. High School is over and Life has totally changed, and the truth about life is that you were deceived about what was really real or really important, and in those few years, reality seemed to change drastically. Our hope this year is that we can help students delve into the ideas of what is real and what isn’t. We believe that God is real and that his love for us is real and is the truth. There are a lot of things in this world that blind us from what is real. There are lies that we believe about life and relationships that make it incredibly difficult to experience the wonder and joy that God has for us. We believe you can know the truth and the truth will set you free. Believing the lies that our culture often throws in front of us can be like being in a prison. We hope that Bigstuf 2013 will help students see more clearly what is real and what isn’t, what is the truth and what is not… and in doing so , to experience the freedom that God wants us to have.
