Franciscan Media—formerly known as St. Anthony Messenger Press, and for more than 118 years a presence in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine—has rebranded and changed its name to better reflect the roots of its mission and its drive to meet the changing needs of the Catholic faith community.
The nonprofit publisher is the largest English-language Franciscan communications company in the world. It operates a national magazine, two book imprints, one of the Internet’s top Catholic websites, a syndicated radio program, a parish-resources division and an e-card business. It also produces audiobooks, videos, apps and other digital resources.
The company’s changes include a renewed corporate identity for Franciscan Media, with a fresh logo and the Franciscan-influenced tagline, “Live in love, Grow in faith.” The logo features a circular symbol reminiscent of an “F,” as well as of a dove, a cross or a crossroads.
“The image is intended to mean all of those things, depending on the viewer’s mindset,” explains Barbara K. Baker, Director of Marketing, Sales and Internet.
