BEST OF COLUMBIA PARTY
Event design for Best of Columbia 2013
My first major event while working for the magazine was the annual Best of Columbia party. The publishers hadn’t held the party last year, and wanted a fresh new look for its return. Once the initial tone and color palette were set, it was just a matter of producing all the collateral to match (and brainstorming ideas for the event itself, of course). This is just a small sample, but over the course of two months I produced over a hundred collateral items for the party, as well as five videos (one for each day of Winners’ Week—think Publisher’s Clearinghouse, big van, giant signs, balloons, etc.). The finished event was a roaring success.
