    Atlantic Theater Company was founded in 1985 by playwright David Mamet and actor William H. Macy and, since then, has established itself as an influential Off-Broadway theater group. It is also known for having a bold and original voice, producing groundbreaking new works by both emerging and established playwrights.

    This bold and original voice was central to the design of the theater’s visual identity back in 2015. The first iteration was a visually loud mix of Hoefler&Co’s Tungsten, red and blue ink, an iconic spotlight/megaphone-like A, a postmodern freedom from formal grids and the overprinting of type and shape. Designed by Pentagram partner Paula Scher, and reconfigured between seasons, this has been a striking and recognizable foundation of the theater’s communications. Having designed the campaign identities for 2017–18 and 2018–19 Paula Scher returns to design the campaign for the 2019–20 season, introducing photography for the first time and a new material component.

    On the website and posters, Tungsten is assisted by Fakt for smaller text.
