Headlands Center for the Arts

Imagery generated from a database of artists involved with Headlands Center for the Arts anchors a flexible identity for their annual auction.

The graphic identity plays out across a range of materials and media, with the forms behaving differently in varied contexts: dramatically scaled in a printed invitation, interacting with dense content in an information-heavy program, and in motion on a website.

See The Superstructure for additional information.
