Partnerships

"One of the best things about being an artist is that I get to share the talent God has given me with others, and hopefully inspire others to dream. I love partnering with companies, because we can work together to bring awareness by telling a unique creative story.

New Orleans Pelicans

The New Orleans Pelicans commissioned Christina to work on several projects.  
One project was to help transform the new Champions Club located in the VIP area of the Smoothie King Arena. Christina was chosen as the sole artist for the space. Her goal was to saturate the club with feel good art, lively color and hopefully translate New Orleans' love for the NOLA team.
Among many things she created for the space, an original painting of Beloved Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson, hangs in the suite area along with several colorful wall pieces of athletes and fan scenes. 
Second, to celebrate the NBA draft pic and the end of paper tickets as we know it, The Pelicans Executive Team asked Christina to design what would be the Pelicans' last printed ticket.
What a honor! And of course she rocked it. 
Third, the Team saw the designs and were floored! So they decided to use the designs for all of their promotional and marketing materials. They even used the designs for the VIP Lanyards. 
 
 

New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints are the heartbeat of the city! So when Christina was asked to work 
with them in 2016, she was beyond honored and excited. She was selected 
as the sole artist for the inaugural NFL " My Cause My Cleats" Campaign. This was big deal because
what they asked her to paint had never been done before. She was to paint on cleats. They 
trusted her and wanted her to try and paint on the athletes shoes. The catch was that they would also be worn on game day on Primetime TV. 

On December 5, 2016 the New Orleans Saints Players wore Christina's cleats on the field and the rest is history! Christina's artwork also was featured as CBS News Best of the Best Cleats.
She was so glad this new opportunity happened, now she was officially a custom sneaker designer.

Throughout the years, Christina was commissioned for many other Saints related 
projects. Her creativity was valued and challenged. Nothing was off limits. In fact one of her new roles is as a Design Sketch Artist. She works alongside the Saints team to design drawings and  sketches of spaces for budget approval before work is set to begin. 



 

Dixie Beer

Dixie Beer was excited about opening a new brewery in the Nineth Ward. Immediately they reached out to Christina for multiple projects. The Grand Opening needed merch and graphics and who better to design this than New Orleans Artist Christina Pappion.
A variety pack to celebrate the Mardi Gras season was in the works and they wanted something spooky to get folks excited about their new Boo-co flava. So Christina worked tirelessly with the Dixie team to design the Variety Pack!
