Here We Grow:
The Campaign to Revitalize Balboa Park’s Botanical Building & Gardens
Phase 01 Goal:
Attracting the private donors prior to the public-facing campaign
When asked to create the donor campaign branding for the restoration of the iconic botanical building and gardens in Balboa Park, IOH™ answered the call with a campaign identity system based on the marriage of legacy and future.
Utilizing unique photo treatments for historic images in combination with fresh, organic shapes, textures, colors and patterns, IOH™ created the following core campaign deliverables:
– Campaign identity
– Image treatments (a watercolor vibe, visually supporting a previously commissioned Botanical Building Illustration by Al Forester)
– Photo direction
– Full marketing package (notecards, folder, business cards, digital letterhead, construction signage)
– Donor template (customizable for more targeted demographics)
– PowerPoint presentation
– Brochure (the big showpiece of Phase 01)
Rounding out the core deliverables, the star of the show was the leave-behind brochure targeted towards high-value, private donors. We pulled out all the stops with specialized print techniques like a gorgeous blind emboss on the front cover and some choice PMS colors for that next-level pop. With an uncoated, thicker stock, the resulting piece was a leave-behind that potential donors wouldn’t soon forget, a fitting tribute to a beloved building and legacy.
