The week before last was a whirlwind for us over here at id8. Our team was honored to be involved in the creative strategy for the Atlanta Jazz Festival 2010, and we attended the festival’s press-party on April 8th.
The event was held at the brand new Loews Hotel in Atlanta and featured such speakers as Mayor Kasim Reed as well as Department of Atlanta Cultural Affairs Director Camille Russell Love. The party highlighted the best talent Atlanta has to offer, including an incredible live jazz band as well as an array of appetizers from local restaurants like Rare and Sambuca. Many movers and shakers from Atlanta were also in attendance, including a group from this year’s premiere sponsor, American Family Insurance.
Our team was responsible for various posters, signage and marketing materials for the event; all of which were carefully crafted to reflect the essence and soul of jazz. Pauline Pellicer has been the lead designer for this project over the past 3 years and has worked hand in hand with Nnena Nchege from The City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs. Our designs for this year’s festival were based upon the influential artwork of Doug Odom and were prominently displayed throughout the evening.
I was honored to share the evening with so many talented people and am very proud of my team’s work.
