I’ve been out of the game for a while, but I recently was asked to start running ProPresenter again for my church. Part of what they’re looking for is unique slide designs. So I figured I’d share some of the projects I’m working with for my church with the CSDI community. Here are some slide designs for upcoming songs we’re doing.
I’ve included PSD downloads so you can check out the text formatting and design elements I’ve used. I’ve also included the font name I’m using for each design.
We use Visual Media Church almost exclusively at my church, so you if you want to grab these backgrounds, I highly recommend a premium subscription ($25/month). That gives you access to their full library. You can also buy them a la carte…I’ll link to each individual product page.
Make a square with complimentary colors for your background. Use white letters within so they are visually dominant.
For this particular song, I actually reversed the play of a long-play inkdrop video. That way it feels like the ink is getting sucked upward. The Northwell font wouldn’t work well for all songs…but since the flow of the song is slow, I like it for Behold.
I create two simple black boxes and align them with the text layer manually. You can do this in Photoshop or just in ProPresenter. Then you can duplicate the slide each time you add a new slide… It preserves the boxes and their location.
I’m a fan of adding a touch of complimentary color to your text layer. That’s what this small box to the right of the lyrics provides. Ties it all together while still keeping a high contrast between the background and the lyrics.
If you guys like these, I’ll keep posting these posts every couple of weeks. Let me know in a comment below if you’d love me to keep them going.
