Project Overview

Since 2011, we have had the honor of collaborating with premiere planner Rafanelli Events to conceptualize and convey the visual identity of Camp Harbor View’s Annual Beach Ball gala. Every year we deliver a unique, unforgettable design, all while keeping CHV’s mission and core values at the forefront.

Ideas Take Shape

A new year brings the opportunity to reinvent the paper design for CHV’s Beach Ball. Every year, we innovate and bring new ideas to the table by presenting sketches of multiple design and printing format options.

Bringing the Theme to Life

Often, the invitation is used as decor inspiration for the main event. With our event partners we produce signage, invitations, table decor, and more!

Thinking Outside the Rectangle

Whether concentrated on unique shapes, bold colors, tucked in a custom laser-cut pocket or stamped with holographic foil, each invitation epitomizes imagination and whimsy themes amplified by active typography and clever copywriting.

Beach Ball Curveball

We had already designed the 2020 Beach Ball save the dates, invitation and website assets when the COVID-19 crisis hit, but we pivoted with CHV in order to continue connecting with supporters and providing for campers and their families. During those uncertain times, the website quickly and conveniently communicated the most up-to-date event information. Once CHV officially postponed the gala, we adapted the original event branding and helped them refocus on the future. Donors received a mailer that expressed gratitude for their continued efforts and highlighted how their generosity made a difference 365 days of the year. Later, we crafted print and digital invites for an online event and curated custom care packages stocked with quarantine essentials, including personalized notecards, playing cards and a custom mask.
