I created this invitation set for the 'Around the World with Susan G. Komen' event for Susan G. Komen of NW Ohio. This is a special event for the community to come together and fight against breast cancer in Northwest Ohio, while hearing from a special speaker Polly Letofsky, the first American woman to walk around the world. She traveled 4 continents and through 22 countries in her campaign to increase breast cancer awareness around the world and raise funds to support those affected by breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen of Northwest Ohio funds their 'Power of the Promise' event each year; this year's event was cause for celebration. Not only did they want a fun and engaging invitation to entice supporters of all backgrounds to come out but also they wanted a playful design to emulate how spirited event is to follow.
One of my favorite ways to tell a story is through graphic illustrations. Whether I create it through traditional means or by digitally drawing on a computer, I find the use of illustrations powerful, because it allows me to convey a particular effect with a mix of colors, graphics and drawings.
