In the Summer of 2015, the charity GIFT ran a fundraising campaign called the GIFT Summertime Grill, where participants held barbecues across the country to raise money for those in need throughout the community. Participants received goody bags containing promotional aprons, matches, cocktail recipe cards and bottled drinks, all bearing the GIFT Summertime Grill branding. Dan was responsible for creating the logo and all promotional materials surrounding the 2015 GIFT Summertime Grill campaign.
GIFT is a Jewish charity whose mission is to create a world of giving and kindness (Chesed), and who are best known for their educational programme and their Kosher food bank, although their remit is far greater than that alone. Dan has been designing for GIFT since 2014, and this is a small selection of the work he has produced for the charity in that time, which includes all materials produced for their 2014 Gala Dinner.
Roll-fold pamphlets are one of the best ways to fit a lot of information into a very small space. Here are a collection of bespoke pamphlets for a range of promotional and educational trips, events, occasions and organisations.
This collection represents a small selection of the design work produced for the Forum for Jewish Leadership since 2014, including pamphlets, brochures, flyers, letterheads and newsletters for their many professional and educational programmes.
Jewish charity Chazon began weekly educational coffee mornings with two prominent Rabbis in the community in 2015. For this series of classes, Dan was asked to produce business cards promoting the events, and to procure matching promotional pens to fit the charity's brand, for which Dan is the curator.
Two of the busiest educational and social event calendars in the Anglo-Jewish Community belong to the charities Chazak and Aish UK, who run programmes in schools, universities and the wider community on a daily basis. With so much going on every day in London and around the UK, plus regular trips and events both at home and abroad, these charities required very elaborate schedule and calendar designs.
An essential for any business venture, and handy pocket-size promotion for trips and events, business cards are a staple part of Dan's design portfolio. Here are a selection of Dan's business card designs for charitable organisations, businesses, events and trips.
Amongst the most complicated work of any designer's remit is the production of unique brochure layouts, whether for magazines, educational series or major fundraising events such as Gala Dinners. In the case of some of these books and brochures, virtually every page of editorial content has been designed differently from the next, a labour of Dan's love and dedication to producing work of the highest standard.
Aish UK is one of the largest Jewish charities in the country, with educational and social programmes for schools, university students and young professionals across the country. Dan was responsible for producing a bespoke brand, souvenir brochure and all the additional publicity and decorative materials for the Aish UK Gala Dinner in 2016.
