From the cockpit
Brian Ryks led the airport for almost 11 years and was integral in establishing Duluth as a viable aviation hub.
Not only did he help increase airline competition and significantly reduce airfare, but he also played a large role in securing funding for the airport’s new, $77-million terminal, slated for completion early next year.
In our eyes, this was worth something extra special.
Preparing for departure
A farewell party was planned to applaud Brian’s accomplishments, thank him for all he’s done for our region, and wish him well on his next adventure at Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford International Airport. Our role: Create a fun and casual, yet classy, invite.
A creative take off
Since Brian helped build our region’s transportation industry, our creative team decided to commemorate him by sending invitees something they could build. Brian likes airplanes, so we thought, “What better way to honor him than with his own private flier?”
The invite is not only an abstract reflection of the building Brian did in our region, but it’s also interactive and less likely to land in the trash.
A smooth arrival
The client loved the invites, so much so that they also used them as decoration at the event.
We join our friends at the airport in wishing Brian a smooth landing in Michigan.
