Some news that’s fit for Print

We’re pleased that our work has been selected for PRINT’s 2010 Regional Design Annual, a com­pre­hen­sive survey of graphic design in the United States. Three of our recent projects will be included in the December 2010 issue along­side other win­ning entries.

Greenwood School, a Waldorf-inspired pre-kindergarten through 8th grade based in Mill Valley, CA, worked with Elixir to develop a mar­keting strategy, brochure and admis­sions kit.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf — A set of tins was part of a com­pre­hen­sive brand visual lan­guage that Elixir devel­oped for the coffee retailer’s ’09 hol­iday promotion.

The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation 2009 Fundraiser — Elixir designed the invi­ta­tion and col­lat­eral for the event hon­oring Julie Packard, Executive Director of the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

A soaring success for Fish & Wildlife

For the second year in a row, Washington DC-based National Fish & Wildlife Foundation retained Elixir to design an invi­ta­tion, event mark and event col­lat­eral for its Bay Area fundraiser. Orchestrated by Stanlee Gatti, the event was held at Crissy Field on March 23rd. Falcon pho­tog­raphy was gen­er­ously donated by Andrew Zuckerman.

NFWF was estab­lished by Congress in 1984 to pre­serve and restore our nation’s native wildlife species and habi­tats. The Foundation directs public con­ser­va­tion dol­lars to the most pressing envi­ron­mental needs and matches those funds with pri­vate con­tri­bu­tions. Since its incep­tion, NFWF has awarded over 10,800 grants to more than 3,700 orga­ni­za­tions in the US and abroad and lever­aged — with its part­ners — more than $635 mil­lion into over $1.5 bil­lion for conservation.
