Opening Night!


Ohhh, Rick, and that Show Boat type… thrilling! 

1000 greetings,
Sagmeister Inc.

Americana nostalgia made modern!
October 1 is the night to get Show Boat, the commemorative poster for the 2011/2012 Lyric Opera season designed by Rick Valicenti/3st.

Classic Color’s 8-color printing plus a spot gloss UV coating brings that extra sparkle to the already flamboyant digital extrusion, wrapped in Rick’s pixelated bunting.

Rick’s layout to Susan Mathieson-Mayer, Lyric Opera’s director of communications, and to Chicago typographer, Jackson Cavanaugh, served as a conceptual layout and a flash card for design direction.

The contributing sponsors of Lyric’s annual poster: Rick/3st and Classic Color president, Ray Bell

Rick extends a special thank you to Classic Color’s Rogelio Guzman and Bill Cornman for their digital rendering wizardry
