We just found out that our letterpress work has received a few more awards, so rather than make a new post we thought we would just update this one:
The Queensland leg of the 2011 Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards (PICA) were held recently and we netted a Gold and Silver in the newcomer category for the two pieces we entered.
Previously, the 2011 Brisbane Advertising and Design Club (BADC) Awards were held and we were delighted to receive a myriad of texts from our friends who were attending. We had entered three pieces, and each one picked up an award!
First up, we recieved a Bronze in the Corporate Design category from the BADC for our work on Mei Yen’s branding.
Secondly, we picked up a Gold from PICA and Silver from BADC for our Aim True Sketchbooks.
And lastly, we were delighted to find out that our invitation for Jaimee + JK’s Story Book Wedding picked up a Silver PICA and a Gold at BADC (!) in the general Graphic Design category. We are absolutely floored and humbled by the result.
We certainly weren’t expecting to win, particularly not
THREE FIVE awards (otherwise we would have been up there to celebrate). Fortunately, Jaimee was there to get up on stage, receive the gold on our behalf at BADC and make an impromptu speech.
If we were to make a speech, we have to thank all of our beautiful, trusting clients for letting us work the way we do and the Brisbane creative community for their support, particularly the BADC committee and the judges of this year’s awards for their discerning taste. And we would also thank our mums.
We are delighted that both our design and our printing skills have been recognised by their respective industries.
