|Concept #1: Design by Linh Trieu/Fresh Fish Creative|
Believe it or not, I'm chairing ANOTHER fundraiser next year, one of two I will be coordinating. I must be a glutton for punishment to plan two events so close to each other. A couple of months apart is pretty close in my book. Since I will basically be managing two committees, I've reached out to more people to help out instead of trying to handle it all on my own. Especially the design aspect. To get the ball rolling on one of the events, I knocked out a concept to present to the Advisory Committee. I kept the beer and taco imagery, but simplified them into more streamlined icons that are repeated. The palette is yellow, orange and green. (Ignore the date and times, I just plugged in approximate details).
This event has an existing logo, but with the gradients, clip art and questionable font choices, I thought a redesign was in order. I've been told that the advisory committee loves and wants to keep the old logo. However, I think you can't possibly know what you want unless you have more options. Fingers crossed that we get approval to update the event logo. I'll share the other two concepts next week. They'll be designed by my friend and former co-worker Chris Magee-Jenks, who I hoodwinked into chairing the design committee for this event. Once we nail down a concept, I'll share more details about the event and organization. If you're looking to get involved in fundraising, we would love the help. Email me about volunteer opportunities!
