Yesterday, we found ourselves weaving between stalls filled with steaming green curry over sticky rice, carefully craddeling bowls of banana yuzu, and bumping elbows to catch a glimpse of a coconut being freshly hacked open. Thai dancers and martial arts masters took center stage. Locals stayed out of the lush heat while admiring silver, hand-made jewelry. All this…in the heart of Downtown LA. At the 6th annual Stu and the Kids food fest, there were amazing options like Prawn Tacos, Street Pad Thai, Tapioca Pudding… and yep, some Six Degrees branding!
Each year, we get a chance to create the branding and marketing materials for one of LA’s best food events. The city’s most well-known restaurants and chefs gather to give everyone a taste of their best Thai-inspired dishes and drinks at the “Flavors of Asia” event, put on by chef Stu Skversky and his non-profit.
Attendees of this food fest also get served up their dose of good karma for the week— all proceeds are used to fund scholarships for university education, to help underserved and orphaned Hill Tribe kids in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
At Six Degrees LA, we’ve been creating full marketing materials for the Stu and the Kids events from the get-go. Every year, things just get better and better. Case in point: this year the team from Nightshade was serving up was an endless supply of Baby Corn Elote with Chili Miso Aioli + Furikake. We may have made a few too many trips over to that table, but hey- all in the name of charity!
Hosted inside the incredible Vibiana restaurant & event space, this year our team got to enjoy our branding handy-work (graphics, t-shirts, signage, etc.) along with all the off-menu bites from Los Angeles heavy-hitters like République, Redbird, Wolfgang Puck Catering, The Rose, Magpies, and more.
To pitch in our part, the Six Degrees team whipped up some custom illustrations. They played on childhood whimsy, pulled from Thai food tradition, and conjured up the feeling of a crowded celebration.
We’re so glad our print and digital marketing materials could help get the word out, and keep Sunday festive. We’re always honored to be a part of the event and this year was no exception. Thanks for all you do, Stu!
