Last Week Wednesday night, Pepsi and Billboard hosted the third installment of the Summer Beats concert series at New York’s Gotham Hall, where a wall at the entrances allowed guests to contribute their own messages, drawings, and signatures. Graffiti-style designs by Artkek Creative surrounding the series’ logo served as the eye-catching starting point, which attendees added to throughout the event.
