Bring Back The Dundee

In early 2016, Film Streams announced a major project to restore and reopen the historic Dundee Theater.

The incredible opportunity to reopen the Dundee in midtown Omaha was made possible by a visionary gift from The Sherwood Foundation, which purchased the 91-year-old theater with the intention of donating it to Film Streams. That gift paved the way for the organization to serve as the new stewards of an Omaha cultural landmark.

The work (soon to be shown here) is for the Dundee Theater Capital Campaign. It includes campaign branding, single-page website design and development, print collateral, and promotional materials for print and digital. The direction and content for the campaign was established by Film Streams.

We worked closely with Casey Logan to execute everything within the aesthetic sensibilities of the current Film Streams brand while creating a unique look for the campaign. It’s fairly obvious, but we were heavily inspired by the typography from old theater marquees, the imperfections inherent in the film process, and the gritty texture of the current condition of the theater itself.
