Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust


A botanical and whimsical illustrative solution for an Enchanted Garden theme

The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust has been caring for the Brisbane community since the 1950s. The Trust provides critical grants and support to local and grassroots charities who help people dealing with the city’s biggest social challenges.

Creative concepts and event collateral centred around the magical and mesmerising illustration of an archway, enticing the viewer ‘in’. Fairy lights and mauve wisteria, used as key visual elements within the illustration, complemented the gala ball setting to create the perfect Enchanted Garden.

Rowland has assisted the trust with communication, promotion, creative services, and media relations for its major fundraiser, The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust Ball, since 2016.

Each ball is themed by the organisers, and once announced, Rowland works with the Trust to provide the design and production for a range of event-related materials, across print and digital.
