CULTURAL DIGEST

A digest size annual publication for the Royal Norwegian Embassy. Beautiful scenic seasonal wrap-around covers were created to give the magazine year-round relevance. The overall approach to the design, photography and illustration was to represent Norway in the most engaging and spectacular way possible. Reaching Norwegians in the US and abroad, and to teach non-Norwegians about the country's vibrant culture and history. Also in order to appropriately reflect Norway's efforts towards environmental sustainability we decided to print the publication on all recycled paper.
