Take Captive Every Thought

#PCMChallenge | Week of December 13, 2021 | By @jakehoukdesigns

 

What is the #PCMChallenge?

  The #PCMChallenge is a weekly creative exercise designed to challenge the Pro Church Media Community to stay creative. We believe that what makes a great designer is practice, practice, PRACTICE! By joining the #PCMChallenge, you are joining dozens of other creatives who are committed to honing their craft in a safe space where there are no deadlines, decision makers or critiques. You can get as creative with the challenge as you want! We want to encourage you, our community, to try new styles, test new programs or apps (you don’t have to use Photoshop!) and stretch your creative muscles ???– so do something new!

How to participate:

Create ANY design based on the theme and submit it to Pro Church Media either in our Facebook Group and/or on social media. Don’t know where to start? Download the FREE mood board created by our design team that will give you a suggested color palette, font style and design assets in an editable PSD.

Hi my name is Jake Houk, I am 12 years old and live in Ohio. I started graphic designing about a year ago on my Dad’s iPad and then a few months later, I taught myself Photoshop. I wanted to get better so I took some classes on Pro Church Media University and they helped me a lot. I’m not sure if I want to be a graphic designer in the future, but I do know God has given me a gift and He wants me to use it. I also like reading, writing, building things, playing outside, drawing, and all things basketball—Go Warriors!

#PCMChallenge FAQ

What is a mood board? A mood board is what designers use to give them inspiration and guidance before getting started on their actual design. It can include suggested colors, fonts, photos and design elements that pair well together. We include a mood board in every challenge to give a helpful starting point or extra challenge to our community.
Do you have to use this week’s mood board or color palette? Nope! You DO NOT have to use the mood board or the color palette in your own design. All you need to use is the theme in your design in some way. Get creative as you want!
How do I get featured? Be sure to use the hashtag #PCMChallenge when you post your design. We check that daily to find posts to feature on Pro Church Media!
