Songs of Fellowship

Many years ago we had the privilege of working on some cover design refreshes for a series called Songs of Fellowship. Book three featured the new design first, and books two and one followed on when they were reprinted.

Shown below are the three final designs for Songs of Fellowship volumes 1, 2 and 3 that we worked on. It’s great to have been all-be-it a small part of this resource which grew from humble beginnings – read the story here.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT ARCHIVE

Background

The history of the Songs of Fellowship series can be read on the website. The timeline begins with Songs of Fellowship in 1979, when the first Songs of Fellowship book containing 53 songs was released. Creative Bytes worked on the Songs of Fellowship cover designs from around 1998 to 2003, on volume 1, 2 and 3. We stopped working on the series after Volume 3, though the designs continued up to volume 5.

Successful series

I’m excited and pleased to see that the series is still going strong with the release of Songs of Fellowship volume 6. This release brought a much needed update of the logo and the cover design moving it on from Creative Bytes original, while maintaining the essence of the feel of the whole series. It is great to see how things develop since we were involved. The series has been a huge success over decades, and credit is due to Kingsway, and later, David C Cook, for creation and maintenance of the whole project. We were priviledged to be a small part of the project timeline.

Latest update (2021)

Although we stress that we were not involved in the concept and production of the marketing campaign for the new Songs of Fellowship Volume 6, we like it. The campaign which accompanies the face-lifted songbook – takes the concept of a faithful ‘friend’ that has been around for a long time – which is exactly, in our opinion, what the brand of Songs of Fellowship has now become. Many churches and organisations will have old editions and volumes they’ve used over the years and are still using today. Integrity Music, who now produce Songs of Fellowship, have also produced a nice quirky video – scroll down to watch it. Oh, and at the time of writing this post in 2021, some of the old covers we created still feature on the video and website!

*We stress again that we were not involved in the concept and production of the marketing campaign for the new Songs of Fellowship Volume 6, but we like it, and so we thought we’d share it with you anyway. The producers of the video did a great job!
