Some client engagements take us back to our college days. Others put us at the 50 yard line, in the middle of all the action. This one brought us closer to the Big Guy.
Fuller Theological Seminary is one of the world’s most influential evangelical institutions. It’s also the largest multidenominational seminary out there, drawing 4,052 students from 83 countries and 111 denominations.
A leading voice for faith in the global church and wider culture, Fuller wanted a tangible way to aggregate its community stories and theological reflections, and enrolled 160over90 to design the new Fuller Magazine.
The challenge? Develop an institution-wide magazine, relevant to a plethora of audiences, consistent enough to feel like Fuller but flexible enough for varying types and lengths of content, and make it scalable for issues to come. Challenge accepted.
Articulated in three sections – Story, Theology, and Voice – the magazine features emotional storytelling, scholarly articles, and a collection of community opinions focused around a central theme, in order to tell the full Fuller story. The design complements the diversity of content with a mix of typefaces, text column sizes and structures, and photographs and hand-drawn illustrations.
We also wanted readers to engage further. So we developed a digital experience enabling readers to explore deeper and find information beyond what could be housed in the hard copy magazine itself. The website serves as a live, curated library of theological perspective. A true reflection of Fuller at its core.
