 Tradewinds and their employees play a big role in supporting and donating to Academy Prep.  Academy Prep is a private school for troubled children on the brink of adolescence.  There is no fee to attend the school and the only requirement is living below the poverty level.  Academy Prep affords children of poverty the same opportunities to flourish and compete that other children have in an exclusive private school.

Tradewinds want to raise their guest’s awareness of Academy Prep and encourage them to become supporters.

Response:

I created the exhibit shown below to raise guest awareness and installed it in the Grand Palm Colonnade.  The exhibit utilizes the school’s logo (an Oak tree) with their mission statement at the base of the tree and random photos of the children that are or have been enrolled in the school.  The exhibit was them printed and applied to an acrylic backer.

Tradewinds wanted to promote the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, however, the museum is limited on funding.  They asked that I create a poster to display in the Grand Palm Colonnade.

It was a concern of Tradewinds that guests are unaware of all the amenities offered amongst the two distinct beach resorts, five heated pools and 20 acres of property which makes up Tradewinds Resorts.

Response:

Tradewinds ‘The Big Picture’ . . .  I created a game for the kids that would generate foot traffic across the entire property and would require some parental supervision, making families aware of the endless options guests have at their disposal.

In order to raise awareness of the newly created game, I created a display wall with a nautical theme, featuring larger photos matching the images on the game pieces.
