Eccles Theater’s Challenge

Salt Lake City lacked a major performing arts center capable of handling large touring theater productions. The city and county needed to build a theater and brand from the ground up that included public engagement to ensure what they built would stand the test of time for the community.

Our Solution

With a brand built around three extraordinary elements; extraordinary arts and entertainment, extraordinary community connections, and extraordinary architecture, we helped the various involved organizations engage the community and build a lasting brand for Salt Lake City’s home for the arts.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Our first step in the process was to work with partners to understand what could benefit the community most. We created interactive displays and on site signage as part of the community engagement that ultimately lead to direction for brand, naming, and architecture.
