Experience the site here

For the 25th anniversary of Art Van's primary sponsorship of America's Thanksgiving Parade, I was tasked with creating a site that captured the joy and unique experience of being in the parade.

I had the pleasure of working with The Parade Company throughout the design and construction phases of the float. My team had the opportunity to volunteer to paint parts of the float, giving us a rare, inside point of view to the art and craftsmanship that goes into these larger than life pieces of art!

This site won gold regional and silver national ADDY Awards.

Oodles of Images

Partnering with the Parade Company allowed us access to thousands of images from decades of magic! The galleries included in this site include behind the scenes images, vintage photography, and a rich history of Detroit.
