A few weeks ago, Adam Walker Cleaveland, Minister for Youth & Young Adults at Asbury United Methodist Church in Livermore, CA, was sitting down to put the monthly newsletter together. He was feeling a little bored with the current layout so he posted something on Twitter asking for ideas. A few of his youth caught wind of that, and one sophomore girl said she’d work on it when she got home, and the result is today’s Freebie Friday: a Twitter-Themed Newsletter.
In the download, you’ll get the newsletter in a variety of editable formats:
- iWork’s Pages
- Microsoft Office
- A postcard version in Microsoft Publisher format
- The necessary font files and Photoshop file are also included
This is such a great idea – primarily because it was created by youth. The designer said she was so stoked that people around the US were using her design for their youth groups – she’s pretty excited to be able to let everyone use this for free! It’s also a great way to keep your newsletters brief, to the point, and concise with a layout that’s been proven to communicate successfully.
