Oscar Party 2019
Client: Academy Of Friends
For the 2019 version of their largest fundraiser of the year, the Academy Awards Night Charity Gala, the non-profit organization Academy of Friends selected “Neptune’s Fantasy” as the event theme. I was asked to design the poster for the extensive, high-budget advertising campaign promoting this one-night event.
I was the lead designer, and supervised a design team to translate the underwater Neptune concept into a poster that appeared on billboards, posters, and kiosks all around San Francisco, as well as featuring as the center of the social media campaign. My design emphasized diversity and inclusion, with a sexy, confident feeling from the models. I led the designers on my team to create an undersea feeling using multiple layers of gradients, effects, patterns and colors. It was a delight and a true honor to see this poster play such a significant role in promoting this influential fundraiser.
