Steppenwolf Theatre 2012-2013

Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago commissions a set of posters each year promoting the up and coming plays, supported pro bono since 1998 by Ogilvy Chicago. The 2012-2013 campaign features Amy Herzog’s play Belleville, The Mother F**ker with the Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis, Head of Passes by Tarell Alvin McCraney, Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party, and Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire. Ogilvy Chicago’s work on the first two won Gold and Bronze for Collateral Design at the One Show last week.
