I had the idea to design stickers based off the songs by Sleeping at Last, written about each of the 9 Enneagram types! You can find his songs and podcasts here:

Each of Sleeping At Last’s songs are written intentionally, with details hidden beneath each lyric and meaning behind the musicality.  I wanted to create my stickers with the same intentionality and care towards each design choice.   

Here’s my Enneagram type 4 sticker and the reasons behind it:

  • the image gives a sense of looking down at a pile of children’s building blocks, pointing to the song which talks about different creating materials and blocks specially but also reminds me how God looks down at our creations from his point of view and sees what we create as beautiful because we our pouring ourselves out

  • the red colors in the design point to blood color because it symbolizes how the fours are empathetic and care and feel deeply 

  • the natural green color because fours are original and act upon a natural process and green is the color known to represent nature 

  • pink because it makes me think of innocence and how fours are nostalgic and love living in memories 

  • blue because of the sky to nod to how when fours feel lost in their emotions they need to look up and see the hope within despair 

  • neutral tan skin type of color because they need to be grounded in trusting that who they are is beautiful and unique in being their raw self 

  • cursive because they make beautiful things and the cursive is in each design- (as the piano is in each song, to tie them altogether in the way that we are all human’s with motivations and how we have many characteristics of each type) 

  • yellow in the Bible represents fire, which then is used to talk about the purification process and that makes me think about how fours want to be true to themselves and the purest form of who they are, unapologetically 

  • dark pure black shadow behind the letters because fours can struggle with really low points of depression and feeling emotions and a struggle to connect with themselves

  • but overall they need to be reminded that when they are their complete selves they are purely beautiful and a reflection of Christ represented through white. they’re made new in Him. They are His creation! 

  • when creating this design i truly didn’t think, i just drew what i felt and this is what came out. i’m learning as part four on the enneagram that that is the best and most freeing way to create artwork. 

  • the song talks about paint, which this reminds me of a paint palette representing how God gives us many outlets and gifts to be used for Him, and fours tend to be really talented, yet sometimes secretly, and they need to remember that that is incredible and they should be super proud of their gifts!
