Elbys 2017

Each year Richmond Magazine hosts the Elbys, an annual awards event that honors excellence in Richmond's dining scene. As a designer at the magazine I was asked to create the branding for 2017’s festivities. I had a lot of fun with the 1920's vaudeville theme as an avid fan of burlesque.
