A benefit was organized in support of Dan Grice, the Vancouver Quadra Green Party’s 2008 by-election candidate. The event was to include a silent auction, buffet, no host bar and cabaret show. Their team came to my studio in need of a series of deliverables to include a flyer, tickets, and a social media campaign design.
Vancouver Quadra is a federal electoral district in British Columbia that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1949. Within the boundaries of this riding are the University of British Columbia and the western portions of the affluent Vancouver Westside. At the time, Dan Grice was the Vancouver-Quadra candidate for the Green Party of Canada. A UBC graduate, he has played a leadership role in BC’s electoral reform movement.
I designed the flyer, tickets, and Facebook event page banner to reflect a classic speakeasy atmosphere, utilizing a sepia toned photograph of an old-fashioned microphone.
The Green Party logo contrasted nicely with the earthy sepia colour.
The event was a success and raised both funds and awareness for Dan Grice and the Green Party of Canada.
