KC Symphony Firebird Ball

How did we create eye-catching work worthy of an ear-catching symphony?

Once upon a time…Stravinsky’s The Firebird was selected by the Symphony League of Kansas City for their 2019 Symphony Ball. Although we offered to perform the music, they insisted we stick to what we do best: designing the benefactor letters, invitations, programs and other materials. We chose a dreamlike look and feel for our design and copy in a nod to the Russian fairy tale on which the ballet is based. The work was recognized in the 2020 AAA Awards and helped the Kansas City Symphony surpass their fundraising goals by 20%…and everyone lived happily ever after.
