Opera Philadelphia

Opera hero

Riding the momentum of a transformation plan, Opera Philadelphia reflects its growing artistic and creative stature throughout all brand communications.

Opera enthralls us because its musical stories are part of the common language that's so much a part of life: love, anguish, joy, tragedy. From the ridiculous to the sublime, opera's bold voice reveals and celebrates the human spirit.

Every production is its own work of art.
Philadelphia's opera company needed a language for communications that lives at the nexus of intimacy and scale, one that reflects the city that lives in us and makes vivid its curatorial ethos. From identity to narrative voice, and from ticket sales to fundraising, Karma gave the opera a new song.

Embracing a lush and varied illustration style, every season is a renewal and every opera gets a unique visual narrative.
