MusicNOW is a series of new music concerts curated by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Mead Composers-in-Residence Samuel Adams and Elizabeth Ogonek. Under direction by John Pobojewski, Thirst created unique illustrations for each concert along with a graphic system for flyers, digital advertisements and on-screen content within the venue. Posters were created to commemorate each performance, expertly crafted by Graphic Arts Studio and Artistry Engraving.
