Augsburg Fortress Lutheran Hymnal

< Back to work

We were honored to be selected as the principal design consultant for a new hymnal used worldwide by Lutherans, a resource that's redesigned only once every few decades. We teamed up with Nicholas Markell of Markell Studios, who provided the iconic images used throughout. Working with Nick, we were able to craft a design solution that more intimately married image with text, beauty with meaning.

The information architecture utilizes a typeface family that was originally designed for wayfinding in the subway systems of Prague. How appropriate for a book that guides worshippers through such varied and rich content.

The end result was met with rave reviews worldwide.
