Heritage Ball literature, catalogue, and advertising

The Heritage Ball is a celebratory annual event established by the American Institute of Architects. 2013 marked the 10th anniversary of the Heritage Ball’s relationship with the Center for Architecture, so a suitably festive graphic language was appropriate. The event identity was conceived as a shimmering series of spherical forms, composed of small overlaid diamonds in black, white, and a metallic bronze. This rich patterning was treated differently on each piece, often utilizing overprinting and other specialized print techniques. The catalogue for the event also featured the work and contributions of the 2013 award recipients.
