Brainstorming for events

One of my favorite aspects of being a part of Itä-Vantaan Kokoomus is the friendly, casual atmosphere surrounding us. We are not your usual politically-driven association. Naturally, we want to promote Kokoomus’ ideas, but we also have fun doing it. When dealing with event planning, we focus on what would get people’s attention, how could we make people smile, how could we draw people in for a chat, how do we make a positive impact?

We’re not all smiles all the time and we know when to be serious, but very often, we feel like a group of good friends rather than a political party’s local branch. We are honest and real people, trying to do our best to improve our home the best way we know how. That's why I think a lot of our events and brainstorming sessions are often successful. We simply try to reach out to our neighbors rather than spread our agenda.

Design brainstorming

We met at a local café to discuss the newest print material and plans. Most of our designs are done by me.
