HCM 40th Anniversary
Hord Coplan Macht 40th Anniversary
Hord Coplan Macht — an integrated architecture firm, headquartered in Baltimore, with multiple offices over the country — sought a 40th-anniversary logo and commemorative piece to help mark this major milestone. To capitalize on the enormity of their large body of work over the years, we created this 300-page, limited edition book, featuring their backstory, a timeline of notable achievements, and an enormous portfolio of work all cataloged under the theme of Creating Place: Design, People, Studio, and Care & Delight.
Thanks to its innate architectural details, the geometric “40” numerals play with abstraction without sacrificing any legibility.
Incorporating the brilliant red and strong letters from their original logo ensure the anniversary logo’s connection to the parent brand remains intact.
For the commemorative book, every detail was a carefully-crafted decision — from the embossed cover for texture, to the page-turning animation of the logo in the end sheets, to the striking color of the foil stamp.
More than just eye candy for the coffee-table, this 300-page, limited-edition tome immerses readers into the history, notable events, and special projects of HCM — a true keepsake.
