KCC collaborates with many community organizations, both non-profit and private business, to create artwork that will brand their special event. The intent is to develop a unique look and feel according to event themes, in an attempt to mold an event’s personality and ultimately generate community excitement and meet fundraising objectives. The brand is then applied cohesively across all platforms including poster art, signage, digital and print invitations, social media marketing, on site branding and decor, and all fundraising initiatives.
