Thirst is a communication design practice based in Chicago. Founded in 1988, the practice has evolved to the current design nucleus which shares 17 years of collective group experience between founder Rick Valicenti, and principals John Pobojewski and Bud Rodecker. Thirst collaborates with high-level clients in the design, cultural, and education communities. As designers, we cultivate conversations. We engage in a process of discovery and experimentation, focusing on concept, craft, and artful investigation. Our work lives at the threshold between art and science resulting in intelligent branding, keepsake artifacts, and unique experiences. Thirst believes design is integral to the human condition. It is ubiquitous, nourishing, and transformative.
