Pilchuck Glass School, founded by artist Dale Chihuly 40 years ago, has grown into one of the most prestigious glass schools in the world. Every summer, glass instructors and artists from around the globe come for education and inspiration at Pilchuck’s campus north of Seattle. We were pleased to be asked to expand their typical poster promotion into full-color catalogs originally promoting the 2013 Summer session. Gratifyingly, applications increased substantially, and compliments are rolling in for the latest catalog. We have also been pleased to design the printed matter for Pilchuck’s Annual Auction – the largest auction of its kind in the world. With over 350 works of art from noted and emerging artists, our reworking of the 160-page catalog has garnered rave reviews for both its elegant appearance and its improved functionality.
