The Apollo Theater is rich with history. Designed by the notable architect George Keister, it has showcased many artists including Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Buddy Holly, and now….CONAN! In order to properly introduce Conan to this famed venue, we used the Apollo Theater's jazz age signage as our design inspiration for the 3 pieces we created for the event.
With minimal art direction and some free rein, we took in and were greatly inspired by the legendary Apollo Theater. We created tessellating patterns and overlaid those tiles with dynamic, color-treated images that harken back to Apollo’s brilliant essence.
