Many people want to grow closer to God, but they don't know how or what to do next. They feel alone, adrift in a world that doesn't even talk about God, with no one to guide them. But God calls everyone into deep, intimate friendship with him. It is possible. Nextstep guides believers step-by-step into the profound, authentic relationship with God they are made for.
Nextstep is a tool, launched by The Evangelical Catholic in 2019, developed to help Catholics take a simple, practical, and adventurous next step in their faith.
After exploring Catholic resources to recommend to the ministries they were consulting across the country, The Evangelical Catholic saw a gap that needed to be filled ASAP. There wasn’t an engaging online resource that walked with Catholics sequentially to help them learn the mindset and habits of a Catholic disciple.
My task was to facilitate conversations with the team to nail down a “gut feeling” for Nextstep™ and design an identity that reflected the unique nature of the resource. When I started working on the project, Nextstep™ was just a vague idea and a name. I was tasked with bringing this resource to life.
We developed a guiding feeling of “human” and “adventure” to reflect the true nature of Catholic discipleship. This feeling influenced every asset of the actual resource from there.
