SHARING OUR PASSION
Twice a year, Ignite Phoenix educates and exhilarates the Phoenix community. As the creative partner for 13 installments, we've had the privilege to design creative programs and event collateral that span a spectacular range of concepts. Each piece fits together to build excitement for the event while engaging the audience in the warmth of the idea-sharing environment.
Read more Ignite is an information exchange – fostering and inspiring Phoenix and global communities to share, experience, and enjoy different topics. From the creative and subjective, to cerebral, inspirational, technical, and philosophical. The work breathes life into an already energetic event showcasing the passions that spark interests in the Phoenix community.
Our friends at Ignite challenge us each time to develop a program that may initially be a simple idea, but undoubtedly grows into something larger. So when it’s time to brand these unique events, the resulting materials are an experience. From signage to apparel, even music packaging – bringing together different materials alongside different ideas is the goal so the entire evening speaks to those willing to be engaged.
Each installment has a different theme and is anchored by the design concept. The event materials must set the stage with intelligent design work that tickles the brain.

Sweetly falling just a few days before Valentine's day, this one-night-only affair led to a charming collection of passions shared under one roof, making everyone's heart skip a beat.
The evening's program was gifted like a grade school-inspired, flirty love note sealed with a heart. Everyone in attendance also received the always coveted mix tape (or CD, as per technology) which housed a collection of feel-good jams curated from local artists.
Cuatro de Mayo
We couldn't resist the call to honor our fellow Phoenician Igniters in the most festive way possible when Ignite Phoenix 12 fell on cuatro de Mayo. An opportunity to flex some illustration skills combining fun with paper became a showpiece of decoration and celebration of culture.
The jubilation of color and playful illustrations showcasing the Phoenix, Arizona skyline adorned the program. This creative program was produced as its own papel picado so attendees could take pleasure in flipping them over and stringing them up to keep the festivities going the following day for Cinco.
Ignite Phoenix 13 was themed on the oddities, fear, and folklore surrounding the number 13. Unlucky? Friday the 13th? Buildings lacking a 13th floor? This phenomena is noted in various cultures around the world bringing to life many bizarre superstitions. Making it the obvious design concept to explore, naturally.
We designed a newspaper publication that looked completely legitimate but filled it with suspicious and bizarre falsities that got people chatting. A perfect collaboration between the Ignite and Splinter teams, we reveled in conjuring up the weirdest and wildest ideas, resulting in a creative program that was impossible to ignore.
Horoscopes were created. A freak crossword puzzle was developed. We even spotted the Phoenician version of a Yetti, called the Sweati. True story. Filled with urban legends and clever infographics our efforts made this read hard not to believe.
