HMR Designs Teamed Up with the NFL for Chicago Draft Town 2016

Share Article

HMR Designs’ distinctive work was greatly appreciated in Chicago at Draft Town 2016.

Last month HMR Designs was on location to make Chicago’s Draft Town weekend even more special. The in-demand company provided décor for several of the event’s festivities.

Corporate event designer Brittanie Ahrens was the creative mind behind the décor in the Legends’ and Prospects’ lounges, and she did a great job. Both rooms featured masculine luxe leather sofas, NFL branded décor and touches of gold.

The lounges provided the perfect retreat for both NFL legends and prospective players to step away from the excitement of the weekend and recharge. In collaboration with the art team, centerpieces were also constructed at HMR’s facilities for the prospects' green rooms. The rooms featured custom-made boxes of wheatgrass that housed the players' college helmets and footballs. These were arranged beside the phone where the prospective players received their calls.

"Draft Town is such a point of pride for Chicago, and we were so delighted to be a part of the excitement," said Ahrens.

HMR Designs’ creative expressions can be found at many of Chicago’s high-profile events. The ability of the firm to perfectly capture the spirit of an occasion, from sporting festivals to theatre and museum fundraisers, comes from a team of experienced designers, an on-site fabricating facility where custom décor is created, and their own floral studio. HMR Designs has everything needed to make events and weddings exceptional.
