Event Branding: Harvest Center "Love Thy Neighbor"

On October 24, 2013, The Harvest Center will host its biggest-ever, annual "Love Thy Neighbor" fundraiser. Artist and philanthropist Anne Neilson is co-chairing the elegant dinner event which will feature keynote speaker Kathie Lee Gifford and will include 900 guests.

Stir Studios is proud to serve as sponsor and steering committee member for the important fundraiser, which will serve Charlotte's homeless community through transformative work of the The Harvest Center.  Today, volunteers assembled our programs, which were printed beautifully (and generously!) by United Printing.

Hats off to Anne and co-chair Cindy Grantham for their extraordinary vision and organization. They've already raised over $100,000 in sponsorships!  Can't wait to celebrate this wonderful evening next week! 


Plaza Presby Fundraiser Invite

I designed this invitation (and logo) several years ago for a fundraising party hosted by Plaza Presbyterian Weekday School.  It's a great party and a fantastic money-maker for the school.  We opted to use the same design again this year.

For The Love Of Plaza: Partying for the Preschool

Plaza Presbyterian Weekday School, in Charlotte's historic Plaza-Midwood neighborhood, is a gem of a preschool and a wonderful community of some of the city's most creative characters.  Every two years, the school has hosted a silent auction fundraiser with all of the trappings of a good time: superb live music from local artists, great food and drink, and the opportunity to win art, services and gift certificates donated by Plaza families and neighborhood merchants.

Having a few marketeers on the playground meant we needed some quality branding for the biennial event.  Colleen Taylor and I, with the help of other Plaza talent, created a logo, invitation, signage, website, merchandise and even a rubber stamp to create custom thank you notes.
