Designing to Support Women
Washington is a town that thrives at the intersection of social issues and socializing. That’s why when Vanguard partnered with the National Network to End Domestic Violence on a fundraiser, we brought our friends at the Women Chefs and Restaurateurs — as well as our design expertise — to raise its profile. We designed a suite of materials that set the mood for an evening of fun centered around a serious mission: getting women out of dangerous situations. From invitations to signage and the program to auction bid cards, our materials combined elements of glamour and grace to reinforce the beauty of women working to protect other women. WCR member chefs from the D.C. area offered up their time and talent to support the event, creating their signature dishes for guests to enjoy, being on hand to “dish” with the attendees, as well as donating auction items.
