The Pulitzer Foundation

Design for Fine Arts

The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts is a landmark in the St. Louis fine art community. The Foundation engaged Michael Thede Design to craft a Foundation Mission Brochure to raise awareness of the Foundation’s guiding Mission, capabilities, and world-class facilities. The design draws its inspiration from the ribbons of concrete which form the Foundation’s beautiful gallery spaces. Typographic restraint keeps the focus on the striking art and Mission message. Follow-up Exhibition Catalogs continue the themes of simplicity and beautiful paper stocks.

“We appreciated that Michael Thede not only helped translate ideas into a publication but also that he took the lead at crucial moments. Another of his strengths is the technical expertise and time he dedicates to the oversight of the printing process.”
