Client Spotlight: Oakwood Country Club

In January 2011, we were excited to bring on another client, Oakwood Country Club (Kansas City, Missouri). Chris Bancroft, General Manager at Oakwood Country Club, has worked with us previously during his stay at Ironwood Golf Club & Banquet Facility (Omaha, Nebraska). During his time at Ironwood, our work with the Chris included designing a direct mail campaigns targeting executives and families, publishing the club’s monthly newsletter and assisting the club with additional branding & collateral.

Our first project with Oakwood consisted of designing the artwork for two banners the club intends to use at The Perfect Wedding Guide’s Spring Bridal Show February 13, 2011. The purpose of these two banners is to communicate two messages to trade show attendees: (i) Oakwood is a historic wedding venue (they have hosted weddings since 1912) and (ii) with a uniqueness all its own, Oakwood is Kansas City’s premiere wedding venue.

We worked closely with Chris to correctly and creatively communicate Oakwood’s message through both text and imagery. This included coordinating with VanDeusen Photography (Kansas City, Missouri), who graciously provided some beautiful photos from a previous wedding at the venue, and overseeing printing/production with trade show display specialist, Hamilton Color Lab (Omaha, Nebraska). The banners are approximately seven feet tall and utilize an affordable, retractable system that allows each banner to be set up and transported with ease.
