Arts House

For Season Two, 2013 at Arts House we illustrated the cover with a venn diagram we drew to communicate the role Arts House has in facilitating a relationship between its audience and the artists it programs. We continued the hand drawn approach established on the cover throughout the season by handwriting all headlines and quotes. We then promoted the season with posters, press ads and online banner ads, all of which followed the identity established in this program guide.
