Carrie Hamilton was the daughter of actress and comedian Carol Burnett. She died tragically at age 38 after a battle with cancer. A new theater in Pasadena, California was to be dedicated to Carrie — we were asked to create the invitation/promo- tional package for a fundraising event.
Carrie loved the color and shape of the bird of paradise. We decided to get off the computer and crack open some paint. A set of hand-painted flowers became the signature of the campaign — the rest of the graphics developed organically from there.
