Postcard for Charlie’s Fundraiser

November 7, 2008

Last month Charlie Schoenherr, Mr. Midwest Leather 08, hosted a fundraiser at Van Goghz Martini Bar to raise money for the American Diabetes Association and PAWS, Pets Are Wonderful Support. Charlie asked me to create a postcard invite and gave me a lengthy list of elements, photos and text to include. I completely ignored his direction and came up with the postcard above. The backside listed all the necessary information (unfortunately with a screwup on the date). Charlie loved the postcard design and ended up giving them out to just about everyone he met. The event was a success, raisingĀ  a couple of thousand dollars for the two causes.

Several business owners donated gift cards and merchandise to raffle off. The infamous Eva Destruction made an appearance in a towering beehive hairdo with twinkle lights and a fabu gown to sell the raffle tickets. The owners and bartenders at Van Goghz worked hard to keep everyone happy and it was a great evening for everyone.

At the same time I was working on a few projects for a company in Boca Raton (Florida) and sent the owner of the business some paperwork. I included this postcard as well as the promo card I did for myself. He loved the look of this piece and asked me to create something for his upcoming wedding over Halloween weekend in Key West. You never know where a design will lead you.
