During one of my days at the Visual Communications office I ended up stepping away from my main project and worked on a print design for the 2015 Best of New York Awards Dinner. I was given the logo and text for the page with instructions to make it fit on a 5×7 cardstock paper.
After measuring the margins on the actual paper and setting up my illustrator file I began working on the design. After a few revisions, and a bit of copy-editing, I ended with a simple, yet formal design.
One of my biggest challenges was finding appropriate fonts for the job that make to look and feel of the event. I was able to solve this by keeping my audience in mind and matching a relevant font family. From there I was able to narrow it down to work with the page.
