January 2020


In 2020, church design “can, and should, be both beautiful and functional.”

The legendary art director and graphic artist, Paul Rand, was credited with saying that design is everything. The line above in quotation marks is also attributed to Rand, in talking about design in general. Even though Rand came to prominence in the decades following WWII, his beliefs still prove relevant, and they certainly ring true for church design. As you work to marry the two, beauty and functionality, in your church design projects in this new year, send us the best examples of your craft at the “Tell Us About Your Project” tab in the upper right corner here. And in the meantime, enjoy this edition of Cover Stories.
