You’re a Graphic Designer with a great company.
You’re a Christian as well.
A project comes in that asks you to design something you really feel disagrees with your faith.
What do you do?
I am very interested in this topis as I have been challenged recently by a Christian friend about some of my live performance projects.
I paly a 20s – 40s swing hipster that is accompanied by 5 -6 “Swing Kittens”. They are women who sing, dance, eat fire, sideshow stunts and do aerials. We try to re-create an aesthetic of the floor shows of the swing era with a contmeporary twist. Think “Boardwalk Empire” meets “Chicago” with a dash of “Dick Tracy.” My vision is to create something commerical, that is fun but flirty within the aesthetics of the era I love. My friend thinks it is too risque. I’d love to hear more thoughts on this subject because it is one that touches a lot of areas…
This would make a great post. Great topic for discussion.
Can this topic be expanded into an article? I’m curious to hear/read what others, and you Tony, think. I have a friend who wants to pursue a field where there are a lot of questionable topics explored and art that isn’t very God glorifying. I keep asking “What will you do if an assignment requires certain things…” and I don’t know how this person will shift out of doing certain assignments if the company asks for it. Does one just do the work or does one look at the bigger picture on how it affects the culture and if and when the work is , yes, conflicting with faith?
