This year, Jon Burgess was a part of the Give Big Riverside marketing committee. He had the pleasure of working with a great team of professionals along with a team of students from the Art Institute-Inland Empire.
“I think the inspiring thing about the project was the students’ enthusiasm for getting involved in a giving event. The team of 8 really looked at how their millenials’ generation could be engaged and encouraged to give,” said Burgess.
Andrew Oaks of Green Acres Design was the students instructor and helped mold their designs and thoughts into some great branding.
