Flint Hill School Gala

Flint hill school gala invitation

The Flint Hill School needed to improve attendance at their annual fundraising scholarship gala. 
The invitation package was built around the concept of the classic children's book, The Wizard of Oz,
to highlight the school's values of respect, responsibility, honesty and compassion.


Illustrator Xanthe Bouma brought a fresh approach to the beloved characters by reinterpreting them in her whimsical style. The interior of the invitation features a full-color map, a nod to the contrast between grayscale Kansas and colorful Oz in the 1939 film. The invitation won a Gold 2016 DC ADDY Award.


The concept and illustrations from the invitation were applied across a variety
of channels, including a digital save-the-date that was shared via email.
