Open Arts & Music Festival


We partnered with Glendale Arts to rebrand the 3rd annual Open Arts & Music Festival, a free family-friendly event with live music, an arts market, a beer garden, temporary public art installations, and all-day activities for children.

Launched in 2016, and presented by Glendale Arts and the Downtown Glendale Association, the festival is a free all-ages event that connects members of the local community to the arts and one another.

Glendale Arts enlisted Kilter to develop an updated brand, website, and marketing campaign to help expand the reach of the event going into its third year.

We designed a dynamic look & feel that visually depicts the way OAM brings together artists and audiences and paired it with a headline that distills the appeal of the event to three simple beats — “Art, Music, You.” We applied the resulting identity to a variety of marketing touchpoints —from a website, to digital & outdoor advertising, and print collateral. The end result was an exciting message-driven campaign that helped to drive a 33% increase in attendance from the prior year.
