The annual Cape Cod Classic is one of two flagship events for the NGPA, the world's largest LGBTQ aviation community. Having been cancelled in September 2020, the group wanted to come back strong with new branding to excite and entice members to gather again in Provincetown, MA (the site where the group originated 31 years ago). The logo combines aviation and the seaside location in a fun way that helped the organization achieve record attendance, and included many international attendees.
After a rough 2020/21 that saw design work for large events (which make up about 50% of my client work) vanish, I was able to focus more attention (and design skill) to personal projects and publications over the last 20 months. This project was the first, large client event to return since the pandemic began and became a big success for the organization. IG: @thombarbour
