Home > Mayor Toni Harp Night at Peralta Design


On January 16th, 2018 Peralta Design had the privilege and honor of hosting an intimate evening with New Haven Mayor Toni Harp at our Shelton, CT headquarters.

We were proudly tapped to design her now famous campaign logo when she ran for her 2nd term as Mayor of the Elm City. We decided to incorporate New Haven’s pride and joy, the new illuminated Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, into her logo design and the result was an iconic brand that remains synonymous with Harp’s love for the city and bold vision for its future as America’s Greatest City.

Many supporters and clients filled our creative space that evening and enjoyed refreshments as well as some impromptu Ms. PacMan games while mingling and getting to know each other. We were asked to hold this post-campaign fundraiser for Mayor Harp and eagerly obliged. It was an opportunity to spend some quality time with Toni, show her around our creative studio, introduce her to clients, vendors, and residents of New Haven, all while also giving her a platform to share her passion for education, improving the quality of life in New Haven and its citizens.

What many people may not know about Toni is that not only was she a state senator in Connecticut from 1993 to 2013 (21 years), but she is the 50th Mayor of New Haven, and the FIRST woman, and only the 2nd African American to hold that post.

Read her full BIO here:


Mayor Harp’s commitment to equality, inclusiveness, and opportunity resonate across policy areas that have steadfastly remained her priority: public safety and criminal justice, public education to include early learning and post-secondary options, public health with an emphasis on access and affordability, and economic development and local job creation.

It was truly a royal treat to have her grace our offices with her presence that evening. Having her express her passion to our guests that evening spoke volumes to her sincerity and dedication to being a servant of the people.

As next door neighbors, with many clients, friends and family working and living in the greater New Haven area, we look forward to growing with and supporting the local economy as well as continuing to be of service to the Elm City and the great state of Connecticut.
