Pro-Bono Brochure & Registration Flier for Zephyr Experience
Throughout the year lots of companies and organizations approach graphic designers and website designers to do pro-bono work for them. Sometimes you can afford to volunteer, give them a nonprofit design rate, and other times you simply can’t.
For four years I served on the Zephyr Experience committee. Zephyr Experience is a week long spiritual retreat held right on the shorelines of Lake Tahoe in Zephyr Cove. It is a wonderful week full of great classes, relaxing afternoons, free time to spend at the beach or hike in the hills, fellowship and worship in the evenings.
I have donated my services to design their marketing brochure and registration form both for print and email version all years between 2010–2019. Below are images of some of the designs.
Art Works Downtown:

Susan Searway Art & Design was happy to assist them in updating their marketing materials, format it for the printer, and get it up to date.
