The biggest costume party of the year was back and in full swing at The Kerry Hotel earlier this month - The Great Australian Ball. Organised by the Australian Chamber of Commerce, this annual event is definitely not one to be missed. 'Epic' was the theme for this year and epic it was, with an attendance of 450 guests including Captain America, Borat, Cleopatra, the Statue of Liberty, NASA, Swan Lake ballerinas and Madonna…even Jesus made an appearance.
Over the past few months, Paper Stone Scissors has been working together with AustCham to release a whole suite of communications material for the Great Australian Ball - from the visual identity to the eDMs, web banners, posters, tickets, signage, menus, program, and the list goes on. We mingled typography with a sprinkling of famous 'epic' quotes in order to communicate their message effectively whilst injecting some fun and playfulness to suit the overall atmosphere of this year's ball.
In addition to this, we designed our own giveaways to distribute to all attendees at the ball. Our Epic Party First Aid Kits were used as centerpieces on the tables and included mints, matches, pencil & paper, band-aids and a do-not-disturb sign…just in case.
Overall, a great success and a truly EPIC effort from all those involved.
We look forward to seeing what happens next year.
Till then, Hasta la vista baby.
