The show must go on — on any size screen. FigDesign designed and implemented a responsive web site for Lyric Stage, the nationally acclaimed producer of American musicals. Video and audio clips, reviews, archived show programs and photos are all available as well as ticketing and sponsorship information.
The client is able to make routine additions and changes to the site, resulting in considerable savings for the nonprofit.
FigDesign has provided art direction, marketing collateral, identity design and online promotion to the Irving-based Lyric Stage since 2007.

A shamrock is certainly an over-used image for anything related to St Patrick, but combining it with a cross ‘redeems’ it somewhat.
This trademarked symbol is officially called the “St Patrick Cross and Clover” and it helps unify all parish entities including the school, the church and various related clubs and organizations.

The 2011–2012 Season from Lyric Stage included Gypsy, Rags, Kismet in Concert and Oklahoma!
Individual logotypes capture the character of each musical in color and typography. These marks were used in all promotions including print ads, postcards, posters and online advertising.
For Gypsy, a silhouette of the star, Sue Mathys, serves as the character Y in the logotype.
For Rags, a moving show about Jewish immigrants, a strong block type contains an image of the Statue of Liberty.
For Kismet, custom-drawn single stroke lettering borrows the curves and twists of Arabic decorative forms.
For Oklahoma!, custom letterforms jump up and down in line, following an archetypical windmill O.

Dedicated to the development and preservation of the American musical, Lyric Stage is Dallas County’s only locally produced, professional musical theater company.
Under the leadership of Founding Producer Steven Jones, it has become North Texas’ most honored theater, winning 35 Dallas Theatre League Leon Rabin Awards and a special citation from the Dallas Theater Critics Forum for excellence and innovation. Lyric Stage has produced 17 world premiere musicals and two Off-Broadway productions.
FigDesign has worked with Lyric Stage to promote the musicals since 2006. The oval logo allows dynamic uses like photos, gradients, and other treatments within the shape — a formula that will present new and interesting variations over subsequent seasons.
A variation of the logo was developed to celebrate the 20th Anniversary Season and used on several promotional items.
