On Saturday, February 15, 2014, the National LGBT youth organization ‘Wel Jong Niet Hetero (WJNH)‘ held its annual New Year’s reception. On the New Year’s reception, traditionally, all Flemish youth groups come together. Usually, the event takes place in the WJNH headquarters office, however this year, for the first time, ┬áthe New Year’s reception would be held in a host city and organised by the local youth group(s). This year, WJNH chose Hasselt as host city for the event, where local youth groups ‘Inderdaad’ (Hasselt) and “Idem Dito’ (Lommel), worked together with WJNH to organize the event.

The program of the event consisted of an introductory game (city game), the reception itself and a festive afterparty. As a volunteer of the youth group of Hasselt, I created the entire corporate identity of the event, consisting of a website, newsletter, folded promotional flyer, digital flyer and social media tools. The promotional flyer contains the program and practical information about the event. The digital flyer announced all information about the afterparty, and the website I made using Bootstrap is fully responsive and includes parallax scrolling.
