Around 6 weeks back, I got the big task to create participant giveaways for Women @ Intel Network (WIN) annual conference.The theme for the conference being 'Collaboration and Winning Together', the idea was to collaborate with Intel artists and create different from regular giveaways.
The challenge was the budget per participant was very minimal and there were few hundred pieces to make. Me along with two other Intel artists took the challenge and put our creative heads together to come up with three giveaways and when I presented the samples to the planning committee everybody simply loved it :)
I decided to make cute little bookmark with beads in Intel blue and white colors, Jennifer Grimes made soapmallows - handmade soap in mashmallow shape too hard to resist eating them :) and Frank Krause made greeting cards with his original photographs.
Making few hundred pieces was not easy but I am blessed to have very supportive family and friends who helped me at each step...from shopping for beads and packing supplies, getting the bead danglers ready, designing the new logo to capturing each stage in pictures. Here are some of them for you to see how the bookmarks came up.
Today was the conference and the participants just loved the giveaways. We ran out of them very fast and people who came later were disappointed to miss them. We had a very successful conference overall and I am already looking forward to the event next year.
