Today, I’ve got an award-winning fundraising package to share with you, and I think you’ll find their approach really inspiring. 

Here’s what’s great about this week’s big idea:

  • An earthy, tactile feel with kraft paper, original woodcut illustrations from a local artist, and a limited color palette really communicates the concept and connects with the audience.

  • The simple addition of a pocket on this classic Closed Gate Fold format turns it into a highly functional fundraising package, and a format that could be used for loyalty packages, direct mail, higher-ed, financial, and real estate verticals.

This piece made such an impression, it received a Best in Show and a Gold Award from the Ad Club of Western Massachusetts. Watch the episode, and you won't wonder why. 

On a personal note, I was humbled by all of the thoughtful emails I received last week after announcing that I needed a week off from the show. Thanks so much for understanding :)
