826 Valencia Gala

826 Valencia is a wonderful children literacy and tutoring non-profit founded in San Francisco. They have expanded to cities around the country and help thousands of children a year to learn to write, communicate and find personal victories which help to propel them through finishing high school.

They thrown an annual gala event which secures much of their funding, and I was tasked with creating the invitation and graphic system for the event that communicated the lighthearted  nature of 826 Valencia. Turn of the century circus signage inspired the print and digital materials. It was paired with and drawn flourished and illustrations and a color pallet drawn from vintage posters.
