Project Details

Client: John Michael Kohler Arts Center

Categories: Event Creative

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center is a 100,000 square foot art museum named after the prestigious Kohler family. Each year the Arts Center hosts an invite-only fundraiser that is a favorite among their charitable events. The events have been attended for decades with donations going towards bringing new exhibits to the museum. The JMKAC engaged Sun Graphics Media to pitch a unique, one-of-a-kind party theme that would help them break fundraising records and bring back some of their most generous donors. We went to work and pitched two concepts to create an exhilarating event. This is the actual pitch video for one of our concepts.

Event Save The Date

We knew we had to develop an elegant theme. Donors who are giving thousands of dollars to fundraising deserve to be treated like celebrities, and that's what we delivered. The event would be a party in the style of Studio 54. The venue would be called Studio 608 (the street number of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center). We created a unique "save the date", consisting of a napkin with a phone number and a lipstick smear that read: "Call me." We knew this would attract the attention of both husbands and wives.

Event Creative Journal Invitation for the John Michael Kohler Arts Center

Journal Invitation & Success

The actual invitation was a journal from the 1970's explaining the elegance of studio 608 and highlighting significant events from the era. It was a period of freedom of expression in an evolving country. We wanted the participants to understand the importance of this time and dress in attire that reflected the sophistication and elitism of Studio 54. The fundraiser was a massive success and set a fundraising record for the event.

“Sun Graphics Media has a phenomenally talented creative team. They are determined, flexible and results-driven. Working with them is a marvelous experience.”
