Ahhh, the Roseys.

We left the PAF Rosey Awards show last Thursday without the burden of hardware, but pleased that our ID Branding identity system won a Merit Award and that our design for 12 Bridges Gin won an Excellence Award. Satisfied? No. Pleased? Yes.

Our deepest bows of appreciation to Integrity Spirits for the opportunity to work with them to invent such delectable brands.

liastatuesOr maybe it’s supposed to be Icarus. Either way, we’re happy to report we won a Silver statue in the package design category from the London International Awards for our Lovejoy Vodka four-bottle design system.

As we reported earlier, we had three finalists (our new logo and identity system, the Lovejoy Vodka series, and our design for 12 Bridges Gin). We’re lucky to have won any hardware at all. The London International Awards have worked hard to make their statues fairly challenging to win. In the package design category only two silvers and one gold were awarded out of 18 finalists.

Just found out that we have three finalists in this year’s London International Awards. Our new logo and identity system, our series of four designs for Lovejoy Vodka, and our design for 12 Bridges Gin. Apparently we’re the only finalists in the liquor category of package design. Winners of silver and gold will be announced November 10th at the Hippodrome which, to my great disappointment, involves no hippos whatsoever.

Congratulations to Pam, Drew, Carolyn, Debbie and all our other friends at TriMet for winning the gold medal in the print category at the recent American Public Transportation Association’s award show . The award honors a multi-purpose piece we created to drum up corporate and public support as well as ridership for the new WES commuter rail that runs between Beaverton and Wilsonville. It’s an honor to work with all of you.

We just received word that two of our works have been named winners in the Communication Arts Design Competition and will be published in the November 2008 Design Annual. Specifically, our series of bottles and labels for Lovejoy Vodka for Integrity Spirits, and our new ID Branding identity system and business papers.

If it weren’t for clients like Rich and Kieran at Integrity Spirits, who believe that groundbreaking thinking and design creates strong and positive ripples in the marketplace, we wouldn’t be in this business. Many of our current clients have just begun to embark upon their own groundbreaking paths with us, so we can’t wait to see what happens next year.

Maybe it’s not surprising that the Lovejoy Vodka also won a Merit in the One Show for Design this year.

On the other hand, let’s not lose sight of the fact that awards are merely affirmations, not the results we seek. The results we’re after are, in this case, the continued growth of sales for Lovejoy Vodka, and that, thanks to a magnificent liquid inside those purty bottles, is happening. Same with their equally wonderful 12 Bridges Gin, which is hot as a pistol at liquor stores. (Ooh, bad combination of words.)
