In 2019, my studio Types & Symbols Kickstarted and published a redesigned and lightly revised version of The Conflict of the Ages, a set of 5 books originally published between 1890 and 1917. Written by Ellen G. White, one of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church who claimed to have received visions from God, the books, and their legacy, can use a little bit of context to fully appreciate.
To this end, we produced a very niche, semi-narrative, explanatory podcast. We reached out to Adventist historians, leaders, and members, conducted pre-interviews, scheduled, interviewed, wrote scripts, edited, sound designed, created custom scores, and published eleven full episodes.
Some of the topics we explored included a controversy in the 70s and 80s around accusations of plagiarism, Ellen White’s views on race, and the specific ways that she and her team put together The Conflict of the Ages series.
