Write Around Portland
Write Around Portland is a local non-profit that strives to build community through writing. They hold free writing workshops for adults and young people at homeless youth shelters, senior centers, schools, hospitals, prisons and treatment facilities.
Every year they put on a fundraiser called Raise Your Pen, and I designed their invitation under the art direction of Precious Bugarin during my internship with her.
Over 800 invitations were printed and the event reached their goal of raising $75,000.
We were given the theme of “light” for this year’s event. The goal was not only to create a striking invitation to attract people to the fundraiser, but also one that would fit within the personality of the brand. We achieved this by using bright yellow paper and graphic type to convey the theme and positivity of the event.
