America’s turning 250 in 2026! And an occasion like that deserves an epic party.
USA250, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit, is building a coalition to develop plans for honoring the country’s Semiquincentennial, with America’s birthplace as the hub of the festivities. The idea is for Philadelphia to be the center of activity for the year — producing and hosting seminal events throughout 2026. Think All Star Games, the Super Bowl, special exhibits at all the museums and compelling public events.
To begin building momentum, the USA250 hosted Toast250, a kickoff party to bring stakeholders to the table.
We’re not sure who had more fun — the partygoers that evening, or our graphic design team while creating the event brand!
To help make Toast250 a smashing success, we designed a suite of event materials starting with a re-design of the Toast250 logo.
We continued with an invitation package, an email banner, web graphics, social media images, event signage elements and a photo backdrop of Independence Hall.
We also worked with our client to provide a design that allowed him to update digital invitations and print small batches on the fly. That way he wouldn’t miss an opportunity to bring someone new into the fold.
Here’s to 2026 in Philadelphia!
