Designed while at Thirst

Inspired by Studio Gang Architects' bold yet elegant interpretation of the modern theatre, John Pobojewski led the design for this comprehensive signage package that is tightly integrated with the architecture.

Many unique applications create a sense of place, including an indoor season marquee, unique donor woven wood wall, and an innovative digital signage package.
