Adrienne Wong’s designs are part of the two most successful Opening Night Gala events in client’s history

On Saturday 17, 2016, one of my design clients, the Houston Symphony held its major annual event, the Opening Night Gala and was the second most successful ONG event in its history! I worked on the event materials including the Logo, Invitations, Program, and stationery. This year ConocoPhillips was honored for their support of the symphony for 30 years, so the design had a black color palette with matte and shiny surfaces to allude to the oil theme with accents of red referencing the ConocoPhillips logo, and I also used metallic silver to highlight the importance of the sophisticated event.

As for the MOST successful Houston Symphony Opening Night Gala, that was in 2014, for Andres Orozco-Estrada’s Inaugural Performance. I designed the logo of the golden bird leading the flock, with a bright purple and blue color palette to reflect the vibrancy of their new musical director.

Both of my designs have a contemporary yet sophisticated feel to them, so I’m glad that it reflects the modern perspective of my client and their Chairs. Congratulations to the Houston Symphony!
