Leo Burnett throws a summer party once a year. This years venue was House-Maison — a restaurant that plays up a duality — so naturally we did the same. The dual themes were: the classic circus based Carnival, and the venetian Carnivale. A custom illustration was created and used as the basis for all other graphic elements — injecting it’s style into everything from large hanging banners to the placemats.
