LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Stratton Mountain School is a private snow sports academy in Stratton, Vermont. Our Web site is www.gosms.org, which tells a lot about us. On the site, there are several pictures of the school. The Winter Ball is a fundraiser that raises money for the Stratton Mountain School Scholarship Fund. It is held on campus in the athletic building. At SMS, we have three snow sport disciplines: Nordic skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need an illustration to go on the front of a Winter Ball invitation. We want the illustration to be a square. We are hoping to reuse the design on several pieces for the marketing of the event (i.e. a poster, a table tent, and a postcard).
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Our target audience is trustees, parents and friends of the SMS community.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
We use a CMYK navy color build of C=30 M=100 Y=100 K=0 and the red color is C=100 M=68 Y=0 Black=54. The red and navy are our school colors.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
Our theme is "Moonlight in Vermont," and we are a ski academy. Both elements tied together somehow would be nice. It is important to note that if we have one of the disciplines (i.e. Nordic, alpine or snowboarding), then we would like to have each of them represented in the illustration. It is a black tie event; we are asking these people to donate money to our scholarship fund, so we want a "classy" image.
An idea we came up with: the Stratton ski area as an illustration on the background, alpine trees in the foreground, and Nordic track marks (with poles) leading off into the forest of the alpine trees. We would want ski tracks and/or a half pipe on the ski area. It all would be at night with the moon lighting up the ski area.
Another idea might be the "Fieldhouse" photo as an illustration with each of the disciplines tied in.
We were inspired by the attachment below, which is labeled US Ski Ball. The dynamic of that event is similar to ours, and we are looking for a similar illustration. The picture, titled "Fieldhouse" is our athletic building in which the event is held.
Lastly, the photo titled "campus from above" is an aerial view of our campus. The ares in the background in Bromley Mountain, but it could "appear" as Stratton.
Feel free to use either of the pictures as illustrations and/or check out our Web site for more information.
