gaiacreative is honored with an American Graphic Design Award!
gaiacreative's invitation and program book design won a national graphic design award last year! Hooray! The job was for the Durango Discovery Museum's annual gala event, and featured a die-cut lightbulb invitation, translucent envelope with wraparound label, reply card and envelope, and diecut program book. See below.

Here's the info on the contest, straight from their site:
2008 AMERICAN GRAPHIC DESIGN AWARD WINNERS
This year, roughly 1,000 pieces were presented in our annual from among more than 10,000 entries, the fifth straight stunning year in which this milestone level of entries has been exceeded. Slowly but surely, over four decades, our Annual has become a meeting place for the best and the brightest.
Media diversity abounds: print and collateral, package design and in-store graphics, advertising and sales promotion, invitations and announcements, direct mail and catalogs, magazines and books, broadcast and film and — surprise, surprise — more internet and interactive pieces than ever. Diverse, too, are the organizations and clients: Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurial start-ups, consumer and business-to-business ventures, political and religious organizations, governments and trade associations, universities and cultural institutions.
Moreover, the winning pieces come from many of the established creative minds and organizations of our time, and even more who are striving to excel, to gain recognition and to find a deserved place in the sun. This is a particularly satisfying mix, since GDUSA is tempermentally welcoming and accessible to a broad range of work and voices in an often insular industry.
