Premiering a Premiere Event

The President's Gala is unlike any black tie fundraiser the university has ever undertaken. From its conception, it was to be a unique celebration of the institution and a must-attend event for supporters both current and potential. It needed intrigue and nuanced tone, and, it needed to sell it out, which, it did.

Swing Thought:

Midnight in the Garden & Gun of Good & Evil

“The experience that we had in partnering with Wier / Stewart to brand our first annual President’s Gala was second to none. Our guests raved about our print materials and the save the date was a big hit. Our event sold out 4 weeks ahead of time and we have no doubt that our communications materials played a big part in making that happen. The talented Wier / Stewart team was a true pleasure to work with.”

“Since this was the first ever President’s Gala for the University, the save the date feels slightly mysterious, with a unique die cut and fold that opens to a 360-degree view of the undisclosed location. We wanted to engage each guest the moment they opened their invitation. The metallic accents transform it into a high-end, classy piece.”
