Presentation is key when it comes to creating a strong impression and with the huge amount of resources available there's no excuse to not have a great presentation for your work.
Gustavo Estevão shared a quite interesting branding project on Behance. In the 13 years of Abduzeedo I believe this is the first visual identity project with strong religious influence. “Avemaria!” is a women's fashion and gift shop with strong Catholic and Christian influences. The brand with the expression "Holy Mary!" announces a customer surprise, which is amazed at the amount and quantity of products offered by the store.
Symbolism was one of the most important parts of the development process, as Catholicism is rich in stories from the bible. Finally, the ultimate goal was to create a brand that was religious, conservative, and young, but not alienating non-religious people.
