Five Points Farms, located in a glorious red barn in Five Points, AL, is the home of an industrious company. I was very excited to be chosen to create a new logo that was clean, crisp and to the point and their packaging. As soon as the packaging is back from the printer and applied to the product, I’ll share photos.
Five Points Farms makes non-GMO grits, cornmeal, and a cornbread mix. Seasonally they produce old-fashioned sorghum syrup and muscadine juice with other products in the planning stages.
My name wasn’t in lights but it was exciting to see my illustration and design for the 2014 Hope Flies—Catch the Cure Fundraising Gala lighting up the Peachtree Road/Roswell Road split in Buckhead Atlanta.
This year we chose the good, old-fashioned Mason jar to create artwork for all the promotional materials.
I created this illustration with a combination of photography and technology. In addition to the invitation, I produced the save-the-date announcement, print and digital ads, the VIP invitation, signage, banners, tabletop presentations, cards representing the “voices” of those who are suffering with mitochondrial disease that were attached to candles used in the evening’s ceremony, and the most fun of all, the marquee of the Buckhead Theatre.
Hope Flies is the signature event of the Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine, an Atlanta, GA based non-profit that funds research into treatment and cure for mitochondrial disease.
In 2012 the Hope Flies Catch the Cure event found a new home at the Mason Murer art gallery. I adapted Matisse’s Fall of Icharus as the inspiration for the cover of the invitation, the ads, the announcements, posters and program. I also designed the event graphics, banners, signage and table tents, as well as consulting on event media.
Fireflies are used as both the FMM logo and in the Hope Flies event logos to represent the waxing and waning of energy as the cellular mitochondria disfunction.
