Featured project: conference branding & collateral

Filed under: Featured Design Project — Tags: , , , , — lidia @ 6:13 pm

For the second year, we worked with BAI to create branding and collateral for their conference, BAI Payments Connect.

The challenge was not only to convey a complicated concept, but to clearly market three distinct conference tracks—all while standing out from other banking events. It also had to be flexible enough to be adapted to multiple print and online uses.

Our design utilized a simple graphic accented with three distinct colors—one for each track. The colors, as well as track icons, were used throughout the conference materials and onsite signage to assist conference attendees in finding their desired sessions.

We worked with our longtime client BAI to create a graphic identity and printed collateral for their newly-updated conference, BAI Payments Connect.

The challenge was not only to convey a complicated concept (the evolution and transformation of the payments industry), but also to create a functional design that allowed them to clearly market three different events. We created a bold, high-tech design that was versatile enough to be adapted to different types of printed pieces, including the Brochure and Postcard shown at left.

The client was clearly happy with the result, commenting, “You always make the marketing team look good!” And that’s music to a designer’s ear.
