Branding, promotion and creative development for a traveling exhibition designed to celebrate Saint-Gobain’s 350th anniversary during its stop in Philadelphia, PA. Philadelphia — home of Saint-Gobain’s domestic headquarters — marked the pavilions’ only destination in North America. From May 30–June 6, the Future Sensations exhibit took over The Oval, a public park adjacent to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I worked closely with the North American Corporate Communications department and the multi-disciplinary core team we assembled to promote the event and ensure delivery of a consistent creative look and feel across all touch points and audiences for the main exhibition and ancillary events.
