The International Awards Ceremony is the Council’s biggest event of the year and 2018 had a record attendance. We updated the look of the event envelope, one-pagers, membership envelope, mission card, sponsor poster and presentation slides and reformatted the program to make 2018 stand out from previous years. The rejuvenated design features gradations and graphic line elements from the Global Fluency Institute website and 2018-2019 The Global Report – both of which were announced at the event. We refreshed the design in 2019 and added a table card for attendees to get involved.

In 2018, the National Association of State and Local Equity Funds hosted its annual conference in Boston. Inspired by the liveliness of the city, our design features custom typography that portrays movement through the dynamic cityscape. The color palette used in the program and digital registration brochure reflects the nautical character of Boston’s oceanfront. We also created a Save the Date email, web assets and signage used at the event.

2018 marked the second year for the Columbus Black International Film Festival. We were proud to design the program for this event that the festival director calls “film activism.” The printed piece is designed at an easy-to-carry size that folds out to reveal the full schedule. White text on a black background references the credits of a movie and a hand-drawn texture expresses the authenticity of these original films.

The theme for the 2018 Dine. Drink. Dress. event at the Franklin Park Conservatory was Party + Empower. We paired strong, bold typography with a warm, “bubbly” background image that evokes the spirit of this annual summer event. This look was applied to multiple print and digital promotions for the event, which raises money to support Dress for Success’ mission to help women achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools. Throughout these materials, personal quotes from Dress for Success clients help to provide a personal connection to the cause.

In 2018, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium hosted a surprise party to celebrate Jack and Suzi Hanna’s 40 years with the Zoo. As the Zoo’s director, Jack Hanna helped make the Zoo what it is today, including its many educational programs and strong conservation efforts. In the design of these pieces, we pair Jack Hanna’s signature safari look with the sophistication of a high-end event. Die-cut leaves and a textured printing technique make this invitation package truly memorable. Ticket proceeds from this event launched the Jack and Suzi Hanna Fund for Wildlife Conservation, Transformative Education and Innovative Habitats.

Each year, NAAHL hosts a Policy & Practice Conference to discuss affordable housing, focus on innovation strategies and share best practices from keynote speakers and panelists.

Since 2009, Ibel Agency has worked with Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing each year to develop a new theme for the organization’s annual partnership luncheon. With the title of “This is home,” the 2018 theme aims to leave attendees with an understanding of the meaningful work that OCCH does in collaboration with its partners. The logo for this theme is carried through all elements created for the event, including digital invitations, an event program, a presentation template, nametags and a video that was featured at the luncheon. We worked with the team at Loose Films to interview residents and OCCH partners for this video. The final piece tells the story of how the work OCCH does gives people a place that truly feels like home.

Ibel Agency has worked with NAAHL each year since 2015 on the organization’s annual Policy & Practice Conference. The 2017 event featured best practices and a keynote speaker in conjunction with the Center for Community Lending.

We implement The New Albany Classic’s theme into the design of the event program, donor book, postcards, e-blasts, invitations, banners, social media assets, forms, event collateral, multiple ads and more.
