Mary Elizabeth Creative was contracted to define the brand voice and look, conduct a full social media audit and create a social media guide, which the founder could then implement to increase social media traffic, growth and traction with their current audience. In addition to the guide, MEC also created a product photography styling guide and sourced props and necessary items so that the TCB founder could create high quality social media imagery on their own.
Mary was contracted by Miriam's Kitchen to help organize logistics for the organization's annual fundraising gala. Mary was tasked with creating a process for and managing the guest list, comprised of high-powered executives from many major coporations throughout the DMV area, as well as liaising with high level corporate sponsors and ensuring the best guest experience for each attendee. Additionally, Mary designed the evening's program and ensured proper ads and logos were included for all sponsors. Lastly, Mary assisted the Director of Coporate Sponsorships with overall event logisitcs including (but not limited to) catering tastings, technical organization, graphic design, seating charts and evening-of organization and run of show. The goal for the gala, which was to raise $400,000 to support Miriam's Kitchen's fight to end chronic and veterans' homelessness, was achieved!
