The Place for Pittsburgh's Creatives to Drink

Leaving a footprint in IDL's stomping grounds

Look no further for creative visionaries in the City of Bridges

IDL and Creatives Drink, Pittsburgh’s largest artistic community gathering, are a natural fit. Though Creatives Drink began as a small and casual networking event, it has quickly grown to become a ritual among the most entrepreneurial up-and-comers of the city’s creative class. IDL signed on to create the visual experience for the eighth edition of the event, curating five captivating moments to engage attendees and leave an impact on IDL’s hometown arts scene. 

The Hometown Hustle

Working on a compressed budget and timeframe, IDL designed, engineered, and produced enriching touch points throughout the event and coordinated with vendors to bring the full execution to life. In one popular focal point, Mylar and halved 3-dimensional letters played off a mirrored backdrop, bringing the “Creatives” entrance experience to a whole new level. 

A premium photo booth that created shareable GIFs as well as the integration of cutting edge interactive technology elevated the participation so that attendees were encouraged to become contributors to the creation of a unique social experience. A record-setting 1,100 people enjoyed an evening of networking, dancing, visual stimulation, and of course, drinks, setting the bar high for the ninth edition of Pittsburgh's most popular creative occasion.
