My first impression was “TOTALLY CREEPY”. But you know what?
1. This is God’s Word.
It’s a Bible verse, so I don’t want to make fun of someone’s efforts.
2. I like seeing them do unusual styles.
One of YouVersion’s strengths with this Daily Verse renderings is the range of styles. To achieve a true range, you push the edges farther. This design pushes the edge. Satin/glossy hand-lettering. Dead-pan stare of a manikin. Stark white palette.
3. Interpretation and meaning
With unusual designs, it can inspire you to try to come up with interpretations for the style. In this case, I don’t know quite how to interpret the manikin—proudness makes us less human?
Kudos to YouVersion for putting out a design that is this unique. Hopefully it inspires some thought from the viewers.
