ERA404 Illustrates Target Benchmark Event at Christie’s
NEW YORK CITY—On November 20, 2003, Target held their “Target Benchmarks Central Park” auction at Christie’s and ERA404 was pleased to again participate in its production.
“We’ve worked with Target twice in the past,” said ERA404 Creative Director Don Citarella, “and always look forward to their projects. They consistently create wonderful events. We’re thrilled to work with them.” In the past, ERA404 teamed up with events and fashion show production company, RANDM, to design the Target Holiday Boat for Christmas 2002 and the Sonia Kashuk Ice Cream truck, which promoted her new line to NYC fashion editors.
Rand Burrus, a principal of RANDM and producer for “Target Benchmarks Central Park,” agreed that the overall outcome of the event exceeded his own expectations. “It is always great working with a great team and we definitely had one on this project!” His vision was to transform Christie’s, the Rockefeller Center Auction House, into a giant sketchbook complete with 20 8′ x 8′ illustrations of Central Park themes. The black-and-white gestural sketches would set the mood for the evening and allow the colors and designs of the benches to jump out.
“I am always amazed at what ERA404 creates!” he said. They have a way of perfectly designing the concepts I see in my head. It was the same thing for the Target Boat. “The quality of work is excellent. The turnaround on each and every project was amazing. Any changes or revisions were always done instantly. The cost is very reasonable and is a great deal considering the quality of work.”
