Concord Means Harmony
Concord means “harmony” and “good proportion.” We strive to bring good harmony to all the work we do. In the words of the Renaissance designer Leon Battista Alberti (1406–1472), “I define beauty to be a harmony of all the parts . . . fitted together with such proportion and connection that nothing could be added, diminished, or altered, but for the worse.”
The logo on this Web site is adapted from Champ Fleury, a treatise on the harmonious proportions of letters by Geofroy Tory (14801533), a master printer, type designer, and publisher of the Renaissance.
