Raw Assets

The creative platform is an expressive translation of our foundational messages, condensing all of its important points into a phrase with personality. This is not a tagline or headline, but a starting point to inspire the look, feel, and tone of communications.


Usage: Use this logo as a footer in ads and programs, and as a supporting element in other communications. We don’t expect this logo to take a prominent role in existing organization or artist communications.

Color Palette

Our vibrant and bold palette works well on dark and light backgrounds. This set of colors offers options that can respond to the photographic elements in the layout.

Usage: Consider using this palette to tie in to the campaign’s overarching platform. We don’t expect this to interfere with the existing brands of organizations and artists, but it’s a resource for creating new materials to align with the platform.
