National Academy Museum and School
Designing the invitation materials for the National Academy’s annual gala events and induction ceremonies
Designlounge worked with the National Academy Museum and School in New York City to create the branding and invitation materials for the institution’s 2016 and 2017 Gala and Auction, the museum’s annual fundraiser events.
Each year the Gala celebrates and honors selected artist and architects for their groundbreaking work with distinguished achievement awards. The funds raised benefit the Academy’s exhibitions, public programs, and upkeep of the extensive collection. For the 2017 Gala materials, we created a visually bold identity to mark a new direction the institution will embark on going forward. The materials included a 24-page program booklet, the invitation, and the reply card.

2016 Gala + Auction Invitation and Program
For the 2016 Gala identity, the word Gala was visually melting with the year 2016 which was a good symbol of unity for the National Academy Museum and School.
- The many Academicians that are part of the National Academy’s roster of influential artists and architects are indeed stars in their professions. Creative energy emits from their talents and expertise.
