On July 2nd 2015, we would like to invite you all to join Kingston Lafferty Design for a jazzy night of music, food and drinks in aid of Ataxia Ireland. From 7pm in the RDS Concert Hall there will be a food and drinks reception followed by a live concert by French jazz band Le Trio Gershwin, who will be flown in especially from Paris for the night.
The concert, which is be hosted by one of our client’s Ecocem, aims to raise funds for Ataxia Ireland’s 2015 Respite Week. This respite week is vital to both people living with Ataxia and their families, as it provides important emotional and physical support. Unfortunately due to recent cuts in the charity’s funding the respite week is at risk of not going ahead this year so fund raising events are more important than ever.
There are many different forms of Ataxia, one of which is Friedrich’s Ataxia. Friedrich’s Ataxia is an illness we are very familiar with, that has affected a good friend of ours. It is a very difficult degenerative condition that affects young teens and hugely impacts their quality of life, only getting worse over time. It is currently without a cure. Any money funded in order to help people suffering from this illness is hugely necessary and greatly appreciated.
When Ecocem asked us at Kingston Lafferty Design to get involved we were delighted to design the poster and invitations. Drawing on inspiration from Parisian design, vintage Jazz graphics and Art Deco fonts we got into graphic design mode to create a poster to help promote the event.
To capture the feel of the evening we wanted to go back to old Parisian style graphic design with a vintage, jazzy feel. The combination of colour, texture, fonts and silhouettes really encapsulates the atmosphere of an old Parisian Jazz Club.
Tickets for the event are €20.00 and are on sale at www.ataxia-concert.eventbrite.ie. Corporate packages for the night are also available, for more information contact [email protected] or call 01-6781830.
Looking forward o seeing you all there on the night!
