This is a K-12 school and we need a design for this year's big fundraising event
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a decorative design element that will go on all marketing materials for a fundraiser called Celebrate Spring 2019. It is a fundraiser for a K-12 school. For example, it will go on the cover of a printed program for the auction, it will be used as the graphic on our invitations to be sent by email and/or post, it might be used on letterhead or wine labels.
This year's event theme is "European Holiday", an old fashioned trip to Europe with two stops: one in Windsor for High Tea (this will be our luncheon event), and one in Venice for a Masquerade Ball (this will be our evening event with dinner and an auction).
I would like to have one design that embodies the theme and, ideally, shows the two "destinations" Windsor and Venice.
So, my idea is the design should be of an old style suitcase bearing travel stickers. Two of the stickers should show clearly: Venice/Italy and Windsor/England. I already have a sketch and some ideas around color - see attachments. I could imagine the design would EITHER be a drawing with black lines on white background and just the two stickers in color, OR the whole suitcase could be in color.
If someone has a completely different idea, for example an old style steam ship with flags of those two countries, or something else I haven't thought of, I would totally consider something different as well.
