“One of the world’s top baroque orchestras.”

Gramophone

“The best period-performance choir anywhere in the world…”

The Globe and Mail

Acme was commissioned to design the creative campaign for Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra’s 40th Anniversary 2018/19 season—including a graphic identity for the season and creative imagery for 11 concerts. The photo-based design includes a “40th” hero image featuring a baroque sunburst based on historical designs and hand-built by Acme with chisels, rasps, and rifflers. In addition, Acme handled all art direction and photography for the concert images in-house and designed brochures for the season, postcards, posters, print ads, and signage.
