my logo is going to the juno awards!

I won't be going to the Juno Awards this weekend {rats!} but a logo I created will be! One of my clients in British Columbia, The Uptown Giftbox Company - a company that makes high-end and beautiful gift baskets - will be supplying the 'swag bags' for the Canadian Music Award Show on Sunday. I worked with Gabrielle Durning a few years back to re-create her logo and her company's marketing material. Now, only a few years later, her beautiful giftboxes will be in the hands of celebs like Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams, Nickelback and Elvis Costello.

For the swag bag, Gabrielle created a custom cedar box and worked with a First Nations artist to have an original design created and silkscreened onto the boxes. These beautiful boxes were then filled them with gourmet and luxury BC products. They look amazing! Congrats to the Uptown Giftbox. And I'm just a little bit excited that my logo creation will be going to the Juno Awards, even if I won't be!

Hey Joelle! Just wanted to say thanks for the 'shout out' on your blog regarding our JUNO Awards limited edition giftboxes. We loved taking your logo there!
And, you would be so proud...I just happened to catch our logo on the HUGE Jumbo-tron screens at the Awards, so snapped a pic! Can send it to you for 'posterity'...hee hee.
Thanks again, and love love love your blog. Who knew a console table could be such a refreshing subject!
