We’ve have been pleased and honored to work with the Des Moines Art Center on the promotional materials for their sixth Des Moines Art Center Big Hair Ball. Employing an interesting new method in coming up with the designs for the promotional material, we started off as a collective, with all of our designers coming up with potential designs for the main poster. We then met with the Big Hair Ball committee and sat down for a group critique. After the first meeting we had a couple of visual concepts to continue working on. The final poster ended up being a hybridized version of three of our designer’s concepts. One of our most important goals as a company is to continue to pursue design projects like this that allow for crossover and collaboration.
The Big Hair Ball takes place on June 1st and promises an evening of fantastic hair art, a runway show and performances by DJ John Solarz, the Belin Quartet, The Garden, and Ballet Des Moines. The theme of this year’s ball is “Masquerade: A Forbidden Fairy Tale.” It will be a party you definitely won’t want to miss. Advance tickets are on sale here.
