Project Details

What We Need
  • A high-resolution digital version of an illustration that can be used across multiple channels (web, print, and/or merchandising)
Additional Details

We are celebrating Storefront for Community Design's 10th anniversary and will be throwing an anniversary party in May. We will be kicking off the marketing of the event in mid-February and planning to include an illustration to use on the save the date, sponsorship opportunities, webpage, and marketing materials. We are planning a small block party along the sidewalks outside of our office in downtown and we would like to replicate this through an illustration / elevation of our block.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a fun idea and photos of what we would like to illustrate, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have our style guide, information on our anniversary,, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to focus on the logistics of the event without spending brain energy and funding on an engaging graphic. It will also be good to engage an outside designer to help build the illustration for the event.

This project is important because we are celebrating 10 years of bringing design resources to Richmond communities and we need an engaging and fun illustration to get our community members and funders excited about participating and attending. This is a great opportunity to use this event as a fundraiser and sponsorship opportunity, but also provide a venue for community members to learn about our programming and impact.
