Seattle Art Museum: Elle Pompidou
In a city like Seattle good food reigns supreme. With so much out there to choose from it takes a certain something special to stand out. Our challenge was to elevate the Seattle Art Museum's TASTE Restaurant to culinary stardom without losing sight of their passion for creating a quality plate cultivated from local farmers.
By combining the appeal of fiberoptic cars exploding overhead with a menu perfected by TASTE Restaurant’s Executive Chef Craig Hetherington and TASTE Event’s Chef de Cusine Josie Urbick, TASTE saw an uptick in catering orders and patronage during the 2012 holiday season.

Seattle Art Museum: European Masters
After the thought-provoking and avant-garde exhibit Elle: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou, Seattle Art Museum curators compiled a wealth of classical portraiture to give the community something more traditional to feast their eyes on.
The resulting exhibit was European Masters. Defined by dutch masters like Rembrant, Van Dyke, and Gainsborough, we knew this exhibit would be peak the interest of committed museum members in the 40 and up demographic.
The challenge became to craft a campaign that respected the classical nature of European Masters while sparking the interest of museum patrons 18 to 35 years old.
The result was a campaign the drew inspiration from the Kenwood House collection's salacious history. From courtesans who kicked the bucket from a make-up overdose to a man who would help shape trade between east and west, we played up the people behind the paintings and the lives that would make them infamous.
