Announcing the 2011 Behind the Scenes Holiday Cards

NEW YORK, NY – The ESTA Foundation announces its 2011 Behind the Scenes Holiday Cards, created by an impressive lineup of all-star designers—Andrew Hefter, Seth Jackson, Derek McLane, and Jim Youmans.

Seth Jackson has designed tours for two decades for Don Henley, Jason Mraz, Hilary Duff, Melissa Etheridge, American Idols Live, Barry Manilow, Carrie Underwood, and Toby Keith, to name a few. He’s also a two-time Parnelli Award winner, and has received the Illuminating Engineering Societyʼs Award of Distinction.

Derek McLane is one of today’s most sought after designers, with designs seen on Broadway in this year’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Anything Goes revivals on Broadway. His design for 33 Variations won him a Tony Award, and his Ragtime and Pajama Game revivals each earned Tony nominations.

Jim Youmans has designed award-winning scenery for Broadway and other live events, as well as for television and media environments. Some of his many designs have included Gypsy (Patti LuPone) and Swinging on a Star on Broadway, as well as Matt and Ben, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Jeffrey, and The Swan (Public Theatre) Off-Broadway, among others.

A perennial favorite, talented young photographer Andrew Hefter returns with an encore performance of his popular design from 2008 in response to requests from those who missed out on this sold-out card the first time around.

Three ordering options are offered, including personalized cards with a company logo and custom message (minimum 250 cards), card packs of 10 with a standard greeting, and electronic versions to be sent via email as a jpg, gif or pdf.

Orders will be taken until September 8, 2011 to arrive by early November. All proceeds benefit The ESTA Foundation’s Behind the Scenes program.
