Lunar New Year Festival 2019-20 Season


05.2019 – 02.2020
BRAND IDENTITY
physical deliverables, digital media, merchandise, apparel
A year-long branding campaign for Lunar New Year Festival (LNYF), an annual cultural show held in the Edison Theatre to celebrate the 2020 Lunar New Year. Profits of each season go toward a philanthropy; this season, our partner philanthropy was Variety. The annual theme for LNYF 2020 was “Emerge,” encouraging participants to emerge stronger from 2019’s trials and challenges into 2020.

With over 300 performers and 1,500 audience members, LNYF 2020 The Year of the Rat: Emerge was a success, selling out all tickets over the course of three shows and raising over $9,000 for donation to Variety.
