Event Management & Website Design: CreateAthon
From Nov. 2014 to Aug. 2015
I organized New Mexico’s first-ever CreateAthon event, a 24-hour hackathon-type marathon where creative and tech volunteers worked through the night to create customized communication packages (such as websites, apps, branding, marketing materials, ad campaigns, etc.) for 10 local nonprofits in the name of Design For Good and Hack For Change.
Secured: donated venue space, 17 sponsors (such as Shutterstock and GoDaddy), over 100 volunteer participants (professionals and some students), 23 nonprofit applicants, and media coverage (talk show appearance, news station coverage, etc.).
In addition to event organization, I created the event website, branding, and collateral (show below).
