ArtPrize Nine is about celebrating the individual creative act, and the courage it takes to make a mark—to move from thought to expression. The identity is comprised of a series of colorful paint swashes, geometric patterns, and small illustrative glyphs. Each individual element speaks to a piece of the event—artists, venues, jurors, volunteers, crowds, voting, artwork, weather—and when these elements are layered together you see the beautiful chaos of the event.
