South Pacific Division communication director James Standish represented the South Pacific Division at a recent discussion on Adventist branding at the World Communications Advisory in Maryland, United States.
It was a pleasure to present on behalf of the South Pacific to Adventist communications directors from around the world. The response to the exhaustive work the SPD has undertaken was very encouraging.
The discussion took place at the request of General Conference (GC) president Ted Wilson in response to the new SPD church signs that are designed to be visible, legible and consistent.
“I want to congratulate the SPD for their work on the Adventist brand,” said Brian Gray, the designer of the Adventist logo, at the beginning of his presentation.
“It was a pleasure to present on behalf of the South Pacific to Adventist communications directors from around the world,” Mr Standish said. “The response to the exhaustive work the SPD has undertaken was very encouraging.”
CLEAR SIGNS: Spot the difference.
“You had overwhelming support from Division communication directors,” wrote Dan Weber, communications director of the North American Division, summarising the discussion that followed the SPD presentation. Julio Munoz, his associate, concurred: “I’m just so impressed with what [the SPD has] developed . . . This is much needed and long overdue.”
“We have let the GC and other divisions know we are pleased to assist in any way we can to raise the profile of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the message we’re entrusted to share,” Mr Standish said. “This is one tool in that direction.”
