Margarida Ferraz Dias,
Graphic and Media Design
As my second month at Vanity Fair, things could not be more hectic. Alongside all the editorial work I have been asked to do, the organisation of the Bloomberg & Vanity Fair Climate Exchange Gala has been one of the most stressful events to organise. The Gala is dedicated to the Bloomberg Philanthropies and their impact on climate change. Besides of the gala itself, the main goal from Vanity Fair was to gather as many artists as possible to shoot for a spread of the magazine, regarding climate change and who has been recently involved in fighting it. This photoshoot was a great experience to work alongside a great photographer, Matt Holyoak, known for epic shoots for most fashion magazines.
Besides of gathering most of the richest people on the planet, it is also a combination between artists, influencers, actors, singers and entrepreneurs from all over the world. It is been very tiring and stressful but rewarding at the same time, by seeing the event itself coming together and the feedback after the actual Gala. Not only I was able to work as an editorial designer for all the aspects in promoting the Gala but also boost up my PR skills in such a big event like this. I have been loving working with Vanity Fair & Tatler and I believe it has been a very good opportunity not only to practice as a designer but also to build a network of contacts for people who might help me in the future.
I'll leave the link for the event pictures here, if you guys want to take a look:
