Branding the State of Creativity Forum

Once a year over a thousand innovators, entrepreneurs, educators and students, policy makers, technology experts and trailblazers gather in the great state of Oklahoma for the State of Creativity Forum hosted by Creative Oklahoma. On November 19 the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City was filled to the brim with those dedicated to promoting and influencing innovation in Oklahoma and around the world. Participants and speakers gathered from across the globe to take part in the event. Keynote speakers included Brad Moore, CEO of Hallmark Hall of Fame Productions, Nancy Kanter, Senior VP of Disney Junior Worldwide, and Peter Sims, co-founder of FuseCorps and author of “Little Bets: How Breakthrough Ideas Emerge from Small Discoveries.”

We were thrilled to be a part of such an influential opportunity for creative minds to network and communicate with each other about the growing global, creative economy. S Design was behind the branding of The State of Creativity Forum which included designing the posters, banners, gala invites, name tags, the conference program, postcard mailers, sandwich boards and more. The theme of the forum was Building Bridges and was inspired by the recent construction of the Oklahoma City’s landmark bridge, SkyDance, a sightly and soaring architecture that represents Oklahoma’s state bird.

When selecting a design direction for the event, we chose to illustrate the bridge in a printmaker style to introduce the concept of the active creative process. The design conveys both creativity and structure. These themes were prevalent in the Forum presentations and seamlessly integrated into the event and stage design by our friends at PDC Productions. The typography for the design was inspired by Bauhaus and reinforced the idea of the convergence of creativity through design, architecture, commerce and education. It was a pleasure working alongside the talented team at Creative Oklahoma and being a part of such a benchmark event for our city.
