CASEThe Academy of Music, established in 1854, has long been Philadelphia's premier venue for classical and popular music, theater, and dance. In 2017, the Academy celebrated its 160th anniversary with a concert and ball featuring celebrity entertainers, fine dining, and dancing. A key design objective was to promote the event and rally support for the Academy, as ticket sales would fund the renovation of this historic landmark.

RESULTIn support of the Academy of Music's fundraising endeavors, I undertook the design of both the invite and program book for the Academy Concert and Ball. Emphasizing the venue's historic grandeur, the theme centered around showcasing its golden features, including the iconic chandelier.

Completed at AAJdesign in 2017.
