STARKART and the NALA Donate a Designer to Dream With Me Foundation

STARKART and The NALA helping the Dream With Me Foundation inspire those who dare to dream via the Donate-a-Designer program.


STARKART, the largest grocery cart advertising company in the U.S. and Canada, along with the NALA, a boutique marketing agency headquartered in Ventura, CA, recently partnered with Dream With Me Foundation through their new Donate-a-Designer program. This cause marketing initiative enables STARKART and the NALA to give a helping hand by lending their designers to altruistic nonprofit organizations.

“At STARKART and the NALA we enjoy lending our hand to great causes,” said Tiffani Tendell, Vice President - Communications and Business Development. “We need to infuse our society with positive vibes. We feel strong about teaming up with the Dream With Me Foundation to just do that.”

The Dream With Me Foundation is the inaugural nonprofit in the Donate-a-Designer program. The foundation is dedicated to providing students and non-professional musicians of all ages accessibility to vocal and instrumental performance, education and training through scholarships and grants, with no limitation as to education, race or religion. The goal of the Dream With Me Foundation is to inspire those who dare to dream.

"The generosity of STARKART and the NALA gives us fresh, updated PR materials saving us time and money, which allows us to focus on the kids and results in more funds for scholarships and grants,” stated Alex Aghajanian, co-founder and CEO of the Dream With Me Foundation.

STARKART and the NALA designers created a harmonious pamphlet for the Dream With Me Foundation, featuring performers and musical instruments. The designers’ vision was to create the “Dream” and to give the readers the feeling that they too can perform . The pamphlet was inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year 2018 Ultra Violet 18-3838. The designers kept the panels flowing with the use of a cotton candy background with hints of rhythmic notes. The pamphlet also features a photo collage of those who have seen their dreams come true with the help of Dream With Me Foundation.

“Inspired by royalty, the violet tone has lots of energy, making it a perfect choice for the project to come to life and be able to communicate the Dream With Me Foundation’s passion for giving music a chance to live,” noted Graphic Designer, Pete Ibarra. “We believe in preserving music in all aspects within our communities ­­— striving for a future full of wisdom-seekers chasing their dreams.”
