|The community of Verrado which is located about 30 miles |
west of Phoenix, AZ is celebrating the recent announcement
of its new retirement district named Victory. Victory is slated to
debut in January 2015. To publicize its November 9th
"Victory Party" event, Verrado enlisted Lindgren & Smith
illustrator Martin Haake to create a poster/image.
His festive digital collage can be seen on the Verrado website.
The Scottsdale-based developers, DMB Associates, envisioned
Victory to be for retirees who have an active lifestyle and are
engaged in their community. DMB worked with experts in such
areas as health, culture and longevity to design the district. The
Victory Party's list of events and Haake's images reflect this vision.
Yoga, a Jazz festival, wine tasting and fireworks are some of the
day's offerings. Martin's colorful & lively composition depicts
people of various ages enjoying the celebration.
