Jesus Manager

Photographic and typographic signs of the times

In his unmistakably poetic way, Prelate Helmuth Schuler has inspired countless churchgoers. With the same unique attitude, the “Jesus Manager” traces the stages of his life and his experience with the Church.

The design concept for this biography focuses on Helmuth Schuler’s exciting life story, deliberately keeping the design simple and setting highlights that relate to the content: The choice of colour corresponds to the prelate’s gown and cingulum, the pink book edge symbolizes the sash of the liturgical vestment. The texts are written in the font “Haarlemmer”, which was used for a new edition of the Bible in Schuler’s year of birth. The book is illustrated by original photographs that are shown chronologically and unedited. Ranging from black and white to the typical chromaticity of various decades, the images create an authentic visual impression of Helmuth Schuler’s life.
