Jazz Arts Group

What is Jazz Arts Group?

The Jazz Arts Group of Columbus (JAG) is America’s premier not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to producing, performing and promoting jazz. JAG’s mission is to advance and celebrate the art of jazz through performance and education. The Jazz Arts Group divides its resources among two areas: performance and education.

Our collaberation.

JAG has several different performance series, including the Swingin’ With The CJO series at the Southern Theatre, JazZoo at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Jazz Arts Group Presents at the Lincoln Theatre, and the PBJ & Jazz family jazz series at the Lincoln Ballroom and Topiary Park. Social Firm’s collaboration with JAG came together as an effort to refresh the current JAG brand with better graphic imagery in concert with more concise messaging with the sole intent to expand JAG’s walk-in and subscription based audiences. In the end, to sell more tickets!

The solution… a fresh look.

Through close collaboration with JAG’s marketing director Terence, we were able to take new graphic assets, brighter colors and tighter messaging to the next level for JAG. We created a balanced look across all marketing mediums that JAG required for their show promotions. Social Firm designed playbills, digital advertising, print advertising in local newsprint and magazines, posters, post cards, direct mail and billboards.
