Whether your nonprofit event is a small dinner or a large gala, it needs to inspire people to attend, sponsor or donate, so your organization can advance its mission. As the face of the event, the design is of utmost importance. To be effective, it needs to engage and connect with your audience. It needs to make them care about your cause and your work.
Why you should work with a professional print designer
If you already work with one, you may realize the value of a professional print designer. However, you may be underutilizing their expertise. When you work with a graphic designer for any project, you will get the best results when you include them from conception (or shortly thereafter) to delivery.
On May 4, I attended Jewish Council for the Aging’s annual fundraising event, the Sylvia Blajwas Productive Aging Award Dinner. They honored Sally Quinn with the Productive Aging Award and the Honorable Sidney Kramer with the Humanitarian Award. Ike Leggett, Connie Morella and many others were in attendance. Gratzer Graphics designed the invitation, programs and slides for the event. The tablecloths and orange pots with yellow flowers as centerpieces were chosen to match our design work.
Yesterday evening, I attended The Jewish Council for the Aging’s 20th Annual Productive Aging Award Dinner honoring Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer prize-winning biographer, historian, political commentator and author (well known for her book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, which was made into a movie); and her husband, Richard N. Goodwin, speechwriter to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.
