Design Systems: Problem Statement and Brand Names:
For this center for the performing arts, the intent of the visual identity is to communicate a sense of genuine and authentic live performance with a bold, elegant, spirited essence. We are reaching our guests of academics, art enthusiasts, and connoiseurs of all ages and areas through our tone of voice. The identity will be presented in a tone of sophistication, warmth, inviting, and authoritative, but not condescending. We are selling an artistic experience, so enrichment should be a key visual element throughout the visual system. Our identity should encompass and address the needs of the three main areas of music, dance, and theater, but a festive or a shared harmonious spirit should be the prominent component.
