LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Stratton Mountain School is a private snow sports academy located at Stratton Mountain, Vermont. Our school's mission is to provide each student with an opportunity to pursue excellence in competitive winter sports and college preparatory academics while developing strong personal values.

Specifically, the illustration we are requesting is for our annual Winter Ball. The Winter Ball is a fundraiser that raises money for the Stratton Mountain School Scholarship Fund. Last year, more than 40 percent of students were awarded more than $650,000 in scholarship money, so this event is an essential part of making dreams happen at SMS. In 2009, the Winter Ball raised more than $80,000 toward scholarships at SMS.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need an illustration for the 2010 Winter Ball. Our theme this year is Rings of Glory and the illustration should somehow tie into this theme. Last year we used this illustration on the invitation, the "save the date" postcard, the event poster, and on several other Winter Ball marketing pieces. We hope to do the same this year, so the illustration should be versatile.
We have had more than 30 Olympians attend our school. During this Olympic year, we are honoring our former Olympians at this year's Winter Ball and we would like our illustration to do the same. We would like the Rings of Glory illustration to reflect Olympic traditions.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
It is a benefit, so potential donors are our main target. Trustees, parents and friends of the SMS community also make up the target audience. The event is typically a black tie affair.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
This will link you to the illustration and promotion pieces we used last year. We were very happy with our illustration last year.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
We are aware the Olympic rings are heavily copyright, but we'd like the illustration to have an implication of the Olympic rings somewhere in the illustration. We also like the idea of including the Olympic torch, and with it, a warm color scheme. We MUST have snow and mountains on the illustration, since we are a snow sports academy.
