The National Cherry Blossom Festival committee came to Judy Reed Silver seeking her illustration/design talents to help them produce marketing materials for their world renowned festival.
Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC. The gift and annual celebration honor the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan and the continued close relationship between the two countries.
Submitted here, the dynamic poster Judy designed for the NCBF committee. She also created artwork specifically for the event’s licensed properties including such items as totes, slippers, and scarves. All have proven wildly successful as evidenced by multiple production runs.
Ask anyone who has attended this festival, they will tell you it is beauty unmatched.
Judy is represented by the Liz Sanders Agency.
