The French American Cultural Society was formed in 1999. Its mission is to offer more opportunities for the residents of the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sacramento region of Northern California, to experience the richness and diversity of French culture.

The FACS organizes a yearly gala, "Paris est une fête". This year's event is the result of the collaboration with the Alliance Française. Both non-profit organizations share a common objective to bridge French and American Cultures.

This is the third time that Design on Moss is selected to create the visuals for this anticipated event.

walking for peace

Spring 2013

In response to the growing divide between the Middle East and the rest of the world, a circle of local and global leaders formed the Abraham Path Initiative in 2007. Since the initial founding, the initiative has worked with host communities, local partner organizations, and a widening circle of global supporters to uncover the path across the region.The Abraham Path is a long-distance walking trail across the Middle East. The path retraces the cultural memory of the journey of Abraham and his family and celebrates its story of hospitality and kindness to strangers.

DoM has designed a variety of print elements for the Abraham Path including a general brochure, a photo book, and the 2012 annual report shown here.
