As a community organization, the festival relies on the talents of many people as we do not have staff artists to put together the pieces we need to have a successful festival each year.
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Website was designed by Don Danielson, Christina Poisal and Ashley Crerar from Skagit Publishing. Skagit Publishing supports the festival by hosting and maintaining the website, www.tulipfestival.org. Skagit Publishing has supported the festival for nearly a decade by maintaining and hosting the website.
Patricia Stowell of Skagit Publishing, is responsible for the look of the 2013 festival brochure. Patricia's talent showcases our 2013 artwork by Karen Sistek, yet gives festival fans a succinct written guide to the festival.
A third designer is a major contributor to the success of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Ginny Bode, Marketing Director for Fisher and Sons, created the graphic design to complement the 2013 poster image. In addition, Ginny designed the image appearing on the Official festival t-shirt distributed by Perennial Favorites.
Ginny's 2012 large tile design won the Gold Pinnacle award for the International Festivals and Events Association as the best new product. The artwork of Kate Larson and the graphic design of Ginny combined to win the Gold Pinnacle for best Commemorative Poster in 2012. And, Ginny won a Silver Pinnacle award for her 2012 T-shirt design.
