Each year the Young Leadership Council of New Orleans honors twenty-five New Orleanians for making a difference in the community.

The theme this year was “Our Time to Shine” which is where I pulled the inspiration for my design. I was inspired by a photograph of light spots. I wanted the invitation to be bright, simple and fun so that people would really be excited about attending the event. I also created a save the date card, program book and signage for the event.

The only production wish I had to go without was to use a PMS gray, but our budget was limited.

Judging by the photos (I have not seen the actual piece) using CMYK for the gray was a good option, it almost looks silvery due to the lighter dots.
