Strategic consulting

YAK Agency worked alongside the Fundraising Office of the University of Padua to design the creativity of the event. In order to enhance the value of the supporters, the team proposed the creation of a "donor wall", a wall printed with the list of all the names of the donors present, arranged to form the number 800 number evocative of the University's anniversary. The donor wall was unveiled during the ceremony, and, in the following months, it was exhibited in Palazzo Bo, the historical seat of the University of Padua since 1493.

Graphic design

The agency was responsible for the design of all the useful materials for the identification and promotion of the event and created the various digital and paper supports in line with the visual: invitation, programme, badge, map, roll-up, posters.
