Cairril.com wins national design award
We are pleased to announce that we received an American Graphic
Design Award for Creative Sparks, a gift we created for
prospective and current clients. A collection of VisoVerbo
designs paired with pithy sayings describing our creative process,
Creative Sparks was also designed to showcase our extensive
experience in print. The piece incorporates beautiful irridescent
papers, spot varnishes, and a variety of special processes such
as die-cutting, emboss, banding, metallic inks, and foil stamping.
The AGDAs recognize excellence in design as part of a national
competition sponsored by Graphic Design USA magazine. Creative
Sparks, created in collaboration with writer extraordinaire
Cathy Moore and printed
by Bloomington's own Spectrum Press, was selected from among 10,000
submissions. The award-winning piece will be featured in a magazine-format
design annual in December.
