project summary

As designers, we are constantly doing our "homework". We often take on projects that require us to learn about a certain industry, culture, or in the case of this project, an artistic movement. Other than the requisite chapter in Art History 101, I'd had little exposure to the Art Deco period before I began work on the collateral for this fundraiser. The pieces here use a mixture of period lettering, dramatic colors, and bold, linear illustration to achieve the look and feel of a glamorous, '20s-era party.
