Now in its 36th season, Philharmonia Northwest was established in 1976 by Frances Walton as the chamber symphony arm of the Thalia Symphony. The Orchestra is comprised of approximately 40 musicians from the Puget Sound area, who volunteer their talents and perform music ranging from the works of the Baroque era to world premieres. Before the beginning the 2011 - 2012 season Philharmonia Northwest hired a new music director Julia Tai. In order to promote this exciting change for the organization PNW hired Riverbed Design to design their promotions for the season. This campaign included posters, informational brochure, program cover and postcards.
