Celebrating a 125th anniversary

Founded in 1893, the 2018-2019 school year marked Walnut Hill’s 125th anniversary. To celebrate the past 125 extraordinary years, the school hosted a variety of birthday events throughout the year. Having worked with Walnut Hill on numerous projects over the past 3 years, we were very excited to have the opportunity to help them prepare for this huge milestone, which started with designing a logo they could use across all anniversary materials.

A celebration of dance

As part of Walnut Hill’s 125th Anniversary, they held a celebration of dance at The Joyce Theater in New York City, showcasing both current students and notable alumni in the field, all of whom were nurtured in the incredible and collaborative Walnut Hill dance program.

Architectural inspiration

Inspired by the beautiful art deco signage on the front of the venue, we leveraged this style throughout the invitation in the typography and in the design elements we created.

Adding some shine

It’s not every day that you turn 125 years old, so we wanted to make sure this invitation felt really special! We chose a pearlescent paper to print both the invitation and the reply card on. The paper added just the right amount of glitz to the design, sparkling when light is reflected off of it.
