California Freemason 300 Years of Freemasonry hero illustration

With a mission to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others, the Masons of California practice principles and traditions of a deep-rooted fraternity: brotherly love, relief, and truth. To honor the 300th Anniversary of Freemasonry, CDA was commissioned to create a limited edition presentation box housing a series of commemorative magazines and coin. CDA created these three cover illustrations, viewed in tandem above, to represent the organization’s evolution from its past, visually transforming into its future.
