This visual and performing arts center presents 200+ events per year. With a heavy calendar of programming, they wondered how to market to a wide variety of audiences, while reducing costs, like that of their print calendar. They also wished to increase institutional awareness. Finally, the center is housed inside a historic movie theater known as The Patterson. As such, they sought direction on clarifying their brand name as tied to, but distinct from, The Patterson.
