Emily and Jolynn have been working on some graphic design projects here in our office. The current project is updating the small Bright Lights binder.

Emily has come up with about 50 different versions πŸ™‚ but we now have it narrowed down to two!

We need to order them really soon, but if you would leave a comment and tell us which one you like better, we would really appreciate the help. For reference, here is a picture of the old binder:

And here are the two new versions:

Cover A

Cover B

Which one do you like better between cover A and B?
(Also, if you have any additional suggestions or thoughts, feel free to share them.) Thanks!


  1. They both look really nice! Emily and Jolynn have done a great job with them. I’ll give my vote to Cover B. Two of my younger sisters also like Cover B better. One of them like Cover A.

  2. The both are very well done. I like A better. With the muted colors on the flowers and the border around the title, my eyes are drawn more to the words on the cover than the design. But, again, both are well done.

  3. I am actually going to vote for the old design! πŸ™‚ I like how, in the old design, the words “Being Radiant in Godliness, Holiness, & Testimony” are centered. It just seems to proclaim the purpose of Bright Lights better than if the words were on the bottom left side.

  4. Hmmmmmm, I think……maybe………I really like conver B! πŸ™‚ Both of them look really great! I can’t wait till we need to order more four our BL group! πŸ™‚

  5. Hey, They both are really good designs!! Good job Emily! I would have to say A is my personal favorite, but they both are really cool:)

  6. Wow! That’s a hard decision! But, I think I am going to have to vote for cover B! πŸ™‚

  7. We both like Cover B because of the brighter, bolder colors! Thanks for your ministry!

  8. I vote for Cover B! I think the striping in the background adds some texture to it, and the flowers are brighter. Love them both though!

    Blessings, prayers and a hug,

  9. Definitely B! Its Great! πŸ™‚ Could you put the acronym in a bolder pink so it would stand out more??

  10. That is a very difficult decision. =) I love both. Maybe A? Because it’s softer and more feminine? But I really love choice B as well. The new designs are beautiful! Great work!


  11. I can’t wait until I turn 8! I like the second one better.
    See you then!
    (age 5-she is anxiously awaiting her 8th birthday when she can start attending Bright Lights!!)

  12. I prefer the first one, but they could make the
    flowers clearer like in the second one. I really like the way there is a
    “box” around the bright lights. But I like them both actually. :-} The second one does not look as faded, which I also like. ~KK~

  13. I really love the old ones… but of the new, cover B is prettier in my opinion. πŸ™‚ Both are very pretty, though! πŸ™‚

  14. Hello! Just to cast another vote, cover B does catch the eye a bit better and it’s quite pretty! So I guess I do vote cover B πŸ˜‰

  15. I love cover B- it stands out more than A, and grabs your attention more that way. They’re both beautiful though- great designing, girls!

  16. I like both, but Cover B is brighter (perfect for “Bright” Lights! πŸ™‚ ) and I think that the background makes it stand out better. So I vote for B!

  17. I would have to say…. Cover B! πŸ™‚ It seems as though it flows better through out the whole page!
    P.S. I LOVE bright lights…. it’s such a encouragment!

  18. Weelll, I think both are nice, but I personally prefer cover A because the top flower is different from the old binder πŸ™‚

  19. Beautiful covers!!! My overall favorite choice is B… but I really like the softer colored flowers in A, and that the flowers are “cut off.”

    Good job Emily and Jolynn! God Bless!

  20. Hello again!

    I just thought I’d add that I really liked the bright colors on the old binders. Just curious, what made you decide to change them?

  21. I like cover A best! Christa thinks the same thing. She changed her mind again! :O)


  22. I like Cover B! The white border makes it different and pretty πŸ™‚ I still read this blog now and then, and it’s fun seeing Jolynn in pictures! I miss all of you a lot and you have no idea how often you guys come to mind. God bless! ♥

  23. I have to say, I miss the days of calligraphy! These are very pretty, though.

    I prefer B, mainly because the acronym is inside the border. In A the border draws the eye to “Bright Lights” so much that it’s easy not to notice the acronym, which I think is much more important than that design suggests. I also like the style of the border in B better (depth, and white more than gray).

  24. Definitely B. To me it looks more polished, and I like that the flowers are brighter and not as big. I’m very excited about a new design!

  25. Hee hee, just cause you need another opinion – I vote for binder B because it is brighter and seems to match our BL brochures better. πŸ™‚

    Have fun choosing! I am laughing knowing what the office sounds like as you decide.

    Love you all! Mary

  26. I would have to agree with Natalie, who said:

    “I am actually going to vote for the old design! I like how, in the old design, the words β€œBeing Radiant in Godliness, Holiness, & Testimony” are centered. It just seems to proclaim the purpose of Bright Lights better than if the words were on the bottom left side.”

    But I guess of the two given, I like Cover A better, because it brings into focus the BRIGHT Lights title.

  27. I prefer cover B also LOVE IT! I like the acronym in the center and then the acrostic spelled out on the side. I agree with one post regarding a bold bright type on the corner, but it looks GREAT!

  28. I have to say I like B the best, but they both look great! I’m excited about the update πŸ™‚ Great job!

  29. I like the striped background on cover B, it adds more texture. I do like them both they are very beautiful!

  30. They are both so beautiful! I am gonna go with…hmm..cover B!

    I had the chance to be at the Radiant Purity conference in Rockwall, TX in June 2011. I was so convicted by it. You have an amazing ministry, Grace and Sarah.

    BTW: I LOVE Sarah’s new book “Before You Meet Prince Charming”. I can’t wait until yours (Grace) comes out πŸ™‚

  31. LOL–because it seems the popular thing to do, I’ll comment on this blog post too. I can’t recall the last time I saw so many commments on one post!
    Hi to the fellow Karissa! πŸ™‚
    Oh, and I’ll cast my vote for the unpopular Cover A. I don’t like stripes.

  32. I love cover B. Brighter colors, more pink so seems more vivid. Love the darker pinstripes in the background. New font looks nice. Cannot go wrong with either one.

  33. My thoughts are that cover A is much cleaner without the extra border around the outside which directs my eyes to the words and sparks my curiosity as to what they stand for, which directs my attention to the corner where they’re spelt out. (So just fyi to who I am, Laura Weieneth was my roommate last year and I just graduated from the College of Design at Iowa State.)
