Norwalk, CT — The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum selected TFI Envision, Inc. to develop the graphics for their upcoming Titanic Centennial Commemoration and Opening Night Gala event.
A starry night sky over the deep blue waters fills the Titanic typography to make this invitation alluring and memorable. Nostalgic typographic treatment completes the picture of this 100 year old historic event. Shown at right is the Save the Date postcard to initiate interest in the event.
The Opening Night Gala is a black tie or period attire event, featuring a talk by Dr. Stephen M. Coan, President and CEO of Sea Research Foundation and Mystic Aquarium. He will be speaking about the enduring legacy of the RMS Titanic. A noted authority on saving the world’s oceans, he will be joined on video by his colleague, famed ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard, who first discovered the wreckage of the Titanic in 1985. Portions of Mystic Aquarium’s major new exhibit, “Titanic – 12,450 Feet Below,” will be on display, along with captivating video of Dr. Ballard’s discovery.
A National Historic Landmark since 1971, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is regarded as one of the earliest and most significant Second Empire Style country houses in the United States. Built by renowned financier and railroad baron LeGrand Lockwood between 1864 and 1868, the Mansion, with its unparalleled Gilded Age interiors and furniture, illustrates magnificently the beauty and splendor of the Victorian Era. “A must see for anyone interested in art, architecture, design or history!” said Elizabeth P. Ball, President/Creative Director of TFI Envision.
