Forgotten Voices International (FVI) // Comm Coordinator
Soiree At the oaks cloister
Come & See 2019
I am the Communications Coordinator at Forgotten Voices International currently, and over my time here I have completed multiple design projects. Please find their descriptions below per project.
Soiree At the Oaks Cloister
This event was one that I planned as a fundraiser in Philly in April 2019. I designed the invitations, RSVP cards, along with a few other small materials, but you will find that they match the theme. Although I am not fond of a black background with light text on any publication, it is what our Board of Directors requested. The graphic on the left side of the invite was custom made to fit the “Great Gatsby” feel that they were looking for.
Come & See 2019
Come & See is an annual event that Forgotten Voices puts on every year as a fundraiser and awareness campaign in their honor. This is the third Come & See I have been part of, but this year was the first time I was the sole graphic designer. The theme of this event is “Continuing the Journey,” which is a play on the fact that we work in three countries in Africa: Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi. We went through many drafts of the invitation designed as a passport, but eventually changed that concept because it didn’t correctly portray the mission and vision of our organization. Below you will find the Invite, RSVP card, social media announcement, place card, and design standards document.

As the Communications Coordinator at FVI, I am able to provide my graphic design skills to any publication or collateral that they would like to create. You will find our 2018 Impact Report first, in which we provide statistics and summaries of our work over the 2018 fiscal year. This publication was important because we changed the organizations color scheme permanently to remove any dark brown, and allow for more white space - for a cleaner look and feel.
The business card design was fairly straight forward, and it also was meant to reflect the new color scheme.
Below is an example of the beneficiary cards we print as collateral.
Lastly, we take great pride in our mission and vision, so you will find them on almost all of our collateral, including the Call to Action Card (left) and Our Model Tabletop Sign (right).
