A Powerful Porfolio of Artist Creations for Penfield Children’s Center

For the past five years, ad agency Cramer-Krasselt has partnered with Milwaukee’s Penfield Children’s Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping infants and children reach their full potential, to promote its primary annual fund-raising initiative, the Croquet Ball.
Each year, C-K commissions artists from around the world to bring their unique vision to the event’s promotional posters. The caliber of talent is widespread: from international artists such as Catalina Estrada, James Jean and Red Nose Studio and others who have worked on brands such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Target, Microsoft, Nike and American Airlines and publications such as O, The Oprah MagazineThe Wall Street JournalNewsweek and Time, to local students at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD). Each artist brings a distinct perspective and enviable talent to the continuing theme of “Make an Impact. Have an Impact.” It’s a fascinating study into these artists’ styles and chosen media. 
These donated illustrations are auctioned off at the event to raise money for Penfield and have gained industry recognition from Communications Arts and The One Show. (Travis Lampe’s “Robot” won a 2006 One Show Award and most recently, Chris Buzelli’s “Tiger” was featured in the prestigious Communication Arts 2010 Illustration Annual.)
Below is a list of all the participating artists and attached a PDF with several posters from the collection, including Lampe’s “Robot” on page 3 and Buzelli’s “Tiger” on page 11. For more information on Penfield Children’s Center, please visit http://www.penfieldchildren.org/
