FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Everybody Has A Story
South Bend, Indiana – Today, Everybody Has A Story (EHAS LLC) and Steve Sult founder and director of marketing for EHAS LLC. (www.sultminecreative.com), unveiled the posters designed by Mr. Sult to promote the 3rd Annual Music and Variety benefit concert to raise money for South Bend Community School Corporation’s Madison Primary Center. An Evening With Curtis Lord and Friends is a separate ticketed event that will take place during October 8, 2016, in downtown South Bend at Century Center’s Discovery. Tickets to are on sale now at www.ehassb.com.
In addition to the “I wish, I hope” artwork and poster for Madison Primary Center, Sult has designed a second poster for one of South Bend’s legendary musicians, Billy ‘Stix’ Nicks who will be honored at the event. This is the third year that Sult has designed posters for the concert/benefit. Other events he has designed for include The Dugan E. Johnson Memorial, Ray Works Memorial Foundation, Mossberg Printing and Daman Products Company among other branded events.
“Steve's work is appealing to our audience because of the large, flat areas of color and dramatic perspectives,” said Curt Heckaman, Executive Director and Founder of Everybody Has A Story (EHAS.LLC).
Heckaman attributes the branding success of the concert largely to Sult’s graphic designs and a EHAS LLC. Board that is passionate and committed to the annual music and variety event. Heckaman feels it is important for volunteer-based businesses to show openness to what a design professional can bring. “With that openness comes a little bit of willingness to let go,” he said. “Let everyone enjoy using their creative talents toward your cause. If you remain open, they may come up with something you may have never dreamed of, and that’s probably what makes it right for us.
”The synergy of Heckaman’s original event vision and Sult’s brand and design sense and graphic creation skills resulted in a prototype that has been expanded on for three years now,” said Shari Coleman-Herman, Operations Director for Everybody Has A Story.
Sult developed the poster images pro bono and has committed a great deal of time to providing his talent to each image. “The strong graphic quality of the images reproduces really well in full color and black and white, and can be adapted to everything from posters, mugs, coasters and merchandise,” Sult said.
Sult donates his royalties to the not-for-profit each year, taking his pay in satisfaction and an expanded graphics reputation and increased business. “It’s great to have the opportunity to partner with causes that improve the quality of life for the community and to spotlight the event," Sult said.
