To create the design elements
for an inaugural Valentine’s Day fundraising event supporting the Center’s mission and outreach services to children and families
in the Bridgeport area.
Transform a bank lobby into an festive
dining and dancing hall that supports
the event theme: “Bring Your Heart to Bridgeport.” Create
a bouquet of floating hearts to serve as the signature image for
the event. The heart graphic is translated into corporate letterhead, “save the date” cards, invitations and more.
As a result of its success, this
first-time event became an annual
fundraising event for the Center.
It won praises from company
leaders and prominent guests
for inspiring a giving spirit and
capturing the essence of the
center’s mission. The bank
continues to use this lobby space
for future events while the interior
walls now display over-sized murals
for advertising campaigns.
Heart strings...floating balloons...bouquet of hearts.
Prizes included a European trip to France and weekend getaway to Nantucket.
Created tarp using fabric, PVC piping for supports and elevation, string and metallic papers for decoration.
Created and directed the installation of a 30’ wall mural for the backdrop of the live band on stage.
Design was originaly projected onto the wall for scale. Various sized hearts were then traced and
cut out of a red vinyl fabric. Type was black adhesive vinyl and strings made of electrical tape.
Real Estate services utilized a cherry picker forklift to adhere the materials to the wall by hand.
Ensured table linens and interior signage were color coordinated with theme.
