To further promote the GMA, I designed the icon and logotype for the Golden Mike Awards. 

The logos provide the invitation cards a much needed visually recognizable element. The consistent usage of the logos is present in material such as the invitation card, admission tickets, program books, and sometimes from overhead projectors onto walls.

– Create icon and logotype for GMA
– Design invitation cards
– Design admission ticket

Signage is used throughout the ceremony location. Not only are they necessary in helping attendees navigate and identify locations, they are great at strengthening brand recognition.

– Design retractable banners to be used on stage
– Design retractable banners to be placed near entrance to the ballroom
– Design various location signs

Step-and-repeat banners, for participants to take red-carpet photos, are a staple in promotion for the GMA event. The visuals are simple with only logos but I created these layouts with consideration, of the size of each banner and distance to where the guests will be standing in front of them, to maximize the legibility and visibility of the logos showing up on guest photos.
