Deco Comes to the Merchandise Mart
Every year, Design Chicago is held at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. Design Chicago is two days of featured events and CEUs at the 120+ showrooms within the Merchandise Mart. In 2015, ROHL held a panel discussion, called Tea with CADS; CADS stands for the Chicago Art Deco Society. Coincidentally, the same year, ROHL was featuring a new product line called ROHL (Perrin & Rowe®) Deco, drawing inspiration from British Art Deco landmarks and motifs. In anticipation of the event, I handled layout of various pieces, including a save-the-date eBlast, a postcard invitation and a panel postcard (highlighting the moderator and panel members). The same motif was used throughout to resemble the window design from Claridge’s Hotel in London, which specifically served as inspiration for the ROHL (Perrin & Rowe®) Deco product line.
