9:00am CST

Theatre Branding in the Digital Age

Are you attracting the right audience for your production? What is your theatre’s graphic identity communicating to your prospective audience? Examine what works, what doesn’t and how to make your brand look as good as your productions.

 
Hey everyone! I am looking forward to the workshop on Thursday morning. The content will last about 1 hour, so there will be time for questions at the end.

A digital version of the presentation will be available for attendants after the event. (That way, you can focus less on taking notes.)

If you want a copy, please send me your email address.

Send to jimg@dramaqueengraphics.com or go to dramaqueengraphics.com and send us a message via the Contact page. Just fill in "SETC Theater Branding Video" in the message field.

 

Thanks all!  Jim Gallagher
