Baptist World Aid Australia is telling a new story about poverty: one with the same commitment, while reflecting a vision of a better world for all
The organisation’s new story is a fresh visual identity, launched today (15 March) across Baptist World Aid’s website, supporter material, church resources, signage and photography.
Melissa Lipsett, CEO of Baptist World Aid, said the new identity expresses ‘a world filled with flourishing creatures who live in safe and just communities, lovingly engaged with their Creator and one another.’
‘Knowing from Isaiah 43:18 that God is in the business of new, we decided to put a new self on our 60-plus year commitment to ending poverty,’ Melissa said. ‘This new self—this new visual identity—deeply reflects what we believe: that it’s God’s story of restoration, and he invites us all to be in it.’
Rebecca Oates, Director of Marketing and Communication at Baptist World Aid, said the new visual identity, which includes bright colours and flags, celebrates God’s kingdom to come.
‘The vision of flourishing communities described in scripture, the new heaven and new earth, require new flags. And what better way to celebrate the hope we have in Jesus, and the fullness of life he intends for us all, than with colour?’ Bec said.
‘We pray you will find hope and inspiration in this new design: that it will point you to Jesus and his generous invitation to join him in what he is doing around the world.’
