Culture Coast Network
The south side of Chicago is home to many museums, music and theater ensembles, performance venues, cultural non-profit organizations, and arts education groups. Thirst, together with a coalition of organizations, is working to define this collection of artistically vibrant neighborhoods as the city's Culture Coast.
To create both a voice and visual identity, we developed a series of icons by taking the sound of residents saying "Culture Coast" and turning that data into visual three-dimensional forms. When all are seen together, they express the diversity of those living on the Culture Coast.
