Over 130 entries were received, more than 4,000 people voted, and now Rachel Malovany has been declared the winner of the 2009 Twilight Dance Series Poster Contest.
Her winning poster entitled “100 Years of Memories” features a photo collage depicting various images of the Santa Monica Pier with a background of wooden planks and soon it will be seen all over town as it becomes the centerpiece of the concert series, used in display advertising, posters, flyers, banners and more.
Malovany is a native Angeleno who does graphic design for commercial real estate in an office overlooking the pier. The summer concert series at the pier is one of her favorite summer activities, so the opportunity to design the poster was very exciting.
It also gave her a chance to stretch her creativity outside of the corporate design world, which she normally does by doing invitation and event designs for friends and family. She will receive $750 and a VIP package for the 2009 season of the series.
The 25th Annual Twilight Dance Series begins July 2 and continues every Thursday through August 27 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the pier. Admission is free. A complete line-up is scheduled for release at the beginning of June. For more information, visit, www.santamonicapier.org.
