CLASSIC WINES AUCTION
Classic Wines Auction is one of the most recognized charity wine auctions in the country. Through Artslandia Publishing, I had the opportunity and honor to design the auction catalog for the 34th event that took place March 2018. The event this year had 850 guests and raised a total of $3 million for five local nonprofits: Metropolitan Family Service, New Avenues for Youth, Friends of the Children, YWCA Clark County, and the Unity Center for Behavioral Health.
The catalog is comprised of 250 pages, featuring this year's program, nonprofits, wine and community ambassadors, and 500 auction lots divided into four categories. I came up with the art direction and executed the design from start to finish within one month and a half. The new catalog marks the departure from the previous book designs and better reflects the philanthropic nature of the organization, and the sophistication of the event. I thank Misty Tompoles—founder and publisher of Artslandia—for giving me the creative freedom on this project, and the wonderful ladies of Classic Wines Auction for being on top of everything, which made my job 200% easier.
