City Girl Swingout! is a Lindy Hop workshop based out of sunny, central Florida:
CGSO strives to encourage and inspire follows through classes, social dancing, and collaboration. We hope that this event provides a venue to either begin or continue your personal journey of exploring dynamics, communication, and individual expression within this dance we love so much. We hope that by the end of the weekend, you are proud to say that you “Don’t just follow the leader.”
As an active member in the Orlando community and the southeast of the United States, I’m all too happy to provide design work for this event. I take great delight in seeing as many dancers as possible get equipped, get encouraged to be the best they can, and further their journey.
Upon meeting with the committee for the event, it was decided on a classy, nocturnal theme with custom neon lettering, something different from previous event themes. After working out the lettering on paper, it was brought to life through illustrator and given special treatment in photoshop to turn it into a three dimensional neon tube. The design was used for Facebook, their website, and even a cake!
The photo of Jo Hoffberg and Nina Gilkenson, the featured instructors for the CGSO event, was taken at Lindy Focus by the ever exquisite, Jessica Keener.
