PROJECT | a 13 month liturgical day planner, the brand it belongs to, and all the extras
Sacred Ordinary Days was started by Jenn Giles Kemper, a spiritual director and business coach located in Waco, Texas. When Jenn first asked me to help her out with "a few graphic design things for her business," I don't think either of us knew what we were getting ourselves into. Since then this project has evolved into a very full-time job. Working with Jenn is super dreamy-- that girl knows how to get things done, effectively but with loads of grace.
So what is it? The main piece of this puzzle is the 13-month, 542 page, liturgical day planner. This product is something that Jenn has been dreaming of using for the past ten years- at its core, it is a tool to help integrate one's spiritual life with one's work (or school) life. The dream is beautiful- to help others do work that they were uniquely created to do and to do it with purpose (effectively, joyfully, and sustainably.)
Inside there are are resources for spiritual formation including:
As well as resources and layouts designed for productivity and focus:
We launched our first planner on Kickstarter in the Fall of 2015 and were blown away by the wild success. We now have two main launches per year (November for the Liturgical Year Edition and June for the Academic Year Edition).
Working with Jenn has allowed me to wear a lot of hats. Design and creative decision making are definitely at the top of the list, but also I've also had the chance to brush up on (or learn) a few other skills: copy writing, editing, social media marketing, mail chimp, mail merger, wordpress, research, etc.
