Here's a sample from the latest in the mailroom:

Youth pastor Greg Willis wants to know figure out how to make the swirl patterns that a lot of "hip" designs employ. Greg, the best option is to do it by hand in Illustrator. But you might also check out Deviant Art for some pre-made swirly stuff. Watch out: there's some really secular stuff on there, but it's a very helpful website for design inspiration, and pre-made elements.
