This design was inspired by Isaiah 25:8 - "He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people's disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken." Sometimes it can be difficult to understand scripture, especially when we come to apocalyptic language such as in Isaiah or Revelation. With that in mind, I zeroed in on the phrase "[God] will swallow up death forever." Death is something that many of us fear. Indeed the many personifications of death, such as the Grim Reaper, can put a face to the dread that we experience when thinking of our own mortality. The text informs us, however, that God is more powerful than Death. For God to swallow up Death forever made me think of the phrase "I eat punks like [Death] for breakfast!" That's how I got to the idea of creating a cereal box logo. It is a cute and amusing way to communicate hope for a future without Death, tears or pain.
