Level of Complexity

Translating the North Lakes four-squares branding into theming elements across room, backdrop, and tables was a core focus creatively. j2 had small candlelight boxes manufactured for the tables, and used opaque surfaces to create a backdrop, which balanced the conservative 'business' nature of the evening with a visually stunning atmosphere.

Key Achievements

Seamless event production, which ran to time, delivered a pleasing menu, and was within client's budget.

Stakeholder Feedback

"A very big thank you to Joanna Jordan and her team who organised the 2nd Annual North Lakes Builders Awards night on behalf of Lensworth North Lakes. This night brings together all of the key builders at North Lakes and recognises their successes through an award ceremony. The food was fantastic, the room decorations where stunning and the night ran extremely smoothly. A true sign of a good evening was the fact that everyone, upon leaving the venue at the end of the night, commented on what a fabulous evening they had."
