Fundraising is a necessary practice for band programs across the country, especially those that see their budgets dwindling. Programs that see success in fundraising translate the interest they have gained from performances into donations. Investing in brand building and communication is the best way to reach potential donors. If you want to fundraise with any success in 2016 and beyond, you need to invest in your logo(s), visual brand identity, social media, and overall communication strategy. Capitalizing on the power of your brand and communicating with clarity maximizes the effect of your effort.
Chance The Rapper released his Coloring Book last month. It is very popular in my music rotation. There are certain albums that I particularly enjoy while I am creating. These albums are brimming with inspiring sonic vibrance and brilliance. My fierce and passionate love of music (and its many genres) fuels my creative endeavors. Coloring Book is an amazing piece of work that I wanted to visualize and write about. This isn’t a comprehensive review or a Genius lyric breakdown. Just some visuals inspired by each track and some things I thought about while listening.
