Field and Floor FX, a leading visual arts design firm specializing in the production of digital flags, digital floors, backdrops and custom uniform fabrics, has entered into a partnership with the Santa Clara Vanguard (also known as “SCV”), located in Santa Clara, Calif. The Santa Clara Vanguard is a nonprofit performing arts organization that has become a recognized leader in music and movement education for Silicon Valley youth. The partnership enables Santa Clara Vanguard to utilize the vast material resources and expert knowledge of Field and Floor FX to create the visual displays for use during the organization’s 2013 winter guard season.    

Field and Floor FX has worked with Santa Clara Vanguard to design digital flags, floors and props to support the organization’s winter guard performances. The Santa Clara Vanguard Winter Guard has been named Independent World Champion twice for its performances in the Winter Guard International (WGI) championships, capturing gold in 2009 and 2011, respectively.

“Doug Gardner and his team at Field and Floor FX expand the creative opportunities for our staff and have been instrumental in opening new areas of exploration for the SCV Winter Guard design team as they shape the 2013 competitive winter program,” said Jeff Fiedler, Chief Executive of the Santa Clara Vanguard.

“Our relationship with Field and Floor FX has been tremendous. Their creative intuition, attention to detail and professionalism have helped us come up with something truly new and unique. We extend a heartfelt thank you to Doug Gardner and his team for this opportunity,” said Jon Vanderkolff, the program coordinator for the Santa Clara Vanguard Winter Guard.

Field and Floor FX’s expertise in the design and production of digital flags, backdrops, scrims and floor tarps has consistently served the needs of some of the nation’s top color guards, drum corps, marching bands and percussion ensembles since the organization’s founding.

“It is a privilege for Field and Floor FX to partner with Santa Clara Vanguard for its winter guard season this year,” Gardner said. “To truly appreciate the level of commitment that SCV’s staff and directors have toward instilling a love for the performing arts in the youth of Silicon Valley, one has to witness a performance in person. We look forward to working in partnership with the SCV for future seasons.”
