Describe your creative piece – what is it and what has it been used for, and why is it innovative?
The slide show presentation was developed to present the many facets of the Deepwood Foundation. The foundation provides service and support to individuals with developmental disabilities. Through the use of graphics, photos and layering we were able to create a slide show that captures both abilities and achievements of those with challenges such as autism, cerebral palsy, downs syndrome and other life challenging syndromes. The slide show was developed by an extraordinary volunteer and will be used in an overall marketing campaign created to increase awareness of the needs and abilities of those with disabilities. The format is versatile and will be used to upgrade the web page, Face Book page and will be shown at events.
What issue or problem were you working to address with this piece?
Community awareness is essential to the success of the Deepwood Foundations efforts. Sharp crisp marketing will catch the public eye and help us share the message and the mission of the agency. Fund raising is an essential component of the Foundations ability to help others; through the use of this presentation we anticipate a positive donor interest.
How has your submission successfully impacted your organization’s ability to solve this issue/problem?
While created for this submission, the slide show has already drawn attention and has received very encouraging reviews. It has been posted on Face Book and will be shown at an event this weekend. Not only is the presentation inspiring it is flexible, and can be adapted to meet the needs of a variety of audiences and demographic groups.
