Higherglypics – merging business and public art in Erie, PA

Founded by artist and designer Todd Scalise, Higherglyphics forges partnerships with cultural institutions, business, and nonprofits that further brand awareness and patron interaction through public art projects.

Established as a for-profit Visual Public Relations firm, Higherglyphics works with clients to craft custom public art campaigns around high profile events, brands, and product launches. These projects have included large scale interior and exterior murals for Erie Skate Park, the Erie Philharmonic, and the Erie Art Museum as well as logo designs installed in public sites around the city.

Higherglyphics furthers public awareness by using the public as walking art billboards, creating artfully designed shirts, tote bags, mugs, cozies, and flasks to advertise commissioned campaigns.


Higherglyphics was recently featured by Fractured Atlas as one of their 2014 Arts Entrepreneurship Award recipients. You can read more about the award and their work here.
