So you've got some questions.
What does "design" have to do with church?
Everything in our lives is designed: our phones, our cars, our toothbrushes, everything! Good design goes unnoticed because it works for us, but when things are poorly designed, they are frustrating and irrelevant. Design teaches us to be more intentionally about how we create experiences for people, crafting solutions for real problems that fit into people's lives seamlessly.
When applied to church and faith, design can create experiences and connections that foster meaning and belonging in our communities, meeting real, everyday needs with intuitive solutions. Design can help us dream past outdated models of church to serve our communities better.
Why did you name your company In the Water Designs?
Water has always been an important part of our Christian story, but what happens when it feels like we're drowning? When the waters are rising and we can't see land?
This company was founded on the idea that the future of the church is in the water, that God is calling us to ask new questions and reimagine what our faith might look like on new horizon.
We use a methodology called Human-Centered Design. This is an interdisciplinary methodology used to solve problems that resist traditional solutions. We focus on solving problems through empathy, creativity, and iteration and pull from all kinds disciplines.
Innovation has become a buzzword that sometimes feels very empty. But, at In the Water Designs, we believe that innovation is about bringing new life to something that's old and struggling. Innovation doesn't mean adding technology to your church; it means creating something that connects to your community in a meaningful and new way!
This sounds expensive. Can I afford you?
Yes! We offer tailored services for each of our clients based on project size and budget size. No two projects are the same, and we think that works best for our clients!
We believe these tools should be accessible to all churches. (Not just ones with big budgets!) So we try to make our prices reasonable for every budget size. Reach out to get a custom quote!
