When Pantego Christian Academy approached us about beginning a new annual gala for supporters of their school, we jumped at the opportunity to fully brand the event all the way down to its name. After a meeting to discuss the gala's intent, purpose, and a little creative brainstorming, we came up with a list of associated words and together we kept coming back to EXALT. The client knew from inception that the inaugural event would have a "Gatsby" theme, so to this name "A Great Gatsby Affair" was added.

We began choosing typefaces for the branding, then created a logo design and social media save-the-date graphics soon after. Throughout the event-planning process we created a printed save-the-date, postcard flyers, large promotional signage, printed invitations, VIP invitations, variable-numbered bid paddles, table tents, table numbers, easel signage (and additional large event signage), and a large program booklet including sponsor advertisements and live auction package details for bidder reference.

The EXALT Gala was a huge success in this, its first year – so much so that plans for next year are already well underway (stay tuned for new theme and branding details)! In the meantime, enjoy this handful of photos from EXALT 2017: A Great Gatsby Affair...
