"Every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time"

It's a rightly assumed notion that students are disorganised. We turn up to places late, leave important items in unimportant places, and forget most plans we make (plans that don't involve food, nights out, and lie-ins of course). It's also an assumed notion that Christians can be pretty disorganised (head in the clouds maybe?), so a combination of the two could be seen by many to be foolish and potentially dangerous.

That's exactly what a University Christian Union is! A group of disorganised students spreading the message of God's love - through planning events, studies, missions and the like. A great thing, a vital thing. But we're students - surely we can't be relied upon to know where we need to be when....?

Think again!

Behold the term-card (front and back) which will inform our Christian Union members of what's happening week-by-week (until they lose it of course).

Joking aside, we felt it would be a good thing to do - what we're about is important stuff, and so us being organised will help us to do our important stuff, Proverbs 16:9 willing of course... I show it to you good people not so you know what's going on exactly (although feel free to pray for us), but because it's kind of design-y.

I was influenced by the idea of negative space in order to make the leaves appear as though they've dropped through the central channel. I also wanted to create a timetable which was clear and accessible, but not dry and boring. I achieved the first via this channel, and the second via the lop-sided nature of the arrows.

Signing off now, I've got to go and... Wait, what was I going to do?
