The Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is a global organization focusing on findingthe cure, prevention and treatment of type 1 diabetes. Every year, the JDRF Los Angeles Chapter hosts the Imagine Gala, an outstanding fundraising event which includes live entertainment, silent and live auctions, and their Fund A Cure program. It has easily become one of the largest Galas in Los Angeles, raising $1.11 million in 2017.
In 2018, the Los Angeles chapter contacted Experia Creative for the branding of their JDRF Imagine Gala. When creating an image for the event, it was important to reference the Gala’s venue, The Beverly Hilton. The hotel’s mid-century architecture and signage influenced the elements chosen for the initial invitation design, which was then expressed throughout the rest of the Gala’s marketing collateral. Save-the-dates, invitations, fundraising forms, letterheads, flyers, brochures and more were created to promote the night to hundreds of guests, donors, committee members and volunteers.

In 2019 their historic home, the Junípero Serra Museum, turned 90, at the same time the region commemorated the 250th anniversary of the founding of contemporary San Diego. The 2018 Holiday season, just before the new year, was an important time to celebrate the impacts of the San Diego region’s historic role as the birthplace of California.
The Annual Giving Campaign’s goal was to ensure the San Diego History Center’s progress to preserve the region’s history continues. The infographic piece visually represents the various parts of the History Center and the impact the organization has on the community.

Old Town Bakers is a new label launched by Flour Fusion Wholesale, Inc., a Lake Elsinore Bakery that was established in 2008. The new launch required a fresh visual identity that could set itself apart from other baked goods on the market while still representing local craft and care. To achieve something bold yet homemade, black labels were created with brightly-colored hand-lettering and illustrations. Old Town Bakers currently has 13 different products (6 muffins, 3 loaves, 4 cupcakes) baked with non-GMO, all-natural ingredients. Find their goodies at Costco and Baron's in Lake Elsinore, Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee and San Diego Locations.

The Ladies Pioneer Society was composed of educated women who arrived in San Diego in the late 1800s from diverse places around the country. This exhibition looks at 6 of these intrepid women pioneers and, through their own writings, examines their perspectives of their new home in San Diego during the early days of American settlement in the area.
They recorded the stories of their journeys to the West and the challenges they encountered while traveling and settling into a new cultural environment. The women often describe their shock at arriving in a city they viewed as dirty, uncultured, and rough — quite a change after living in the more established cities on the East Coast or San Francisco. However, over time, most were able to find beauty and to create a new life.
Their accounts include stories of life in Old Town; parties at Horton House; visiting La Jolla Cove, the Hotel Del Coronado, and the Sweetwater River; and the new cultures and wildlife they encountered. These early female pioneers provide a glimpse into the small, dusty town San Diego once was and invite you to imagine their reality.
