A Toast to 2009

Warm hol­iday greet­ings from all of us at Elixir,

Just a quick note to wish you the best as the year (our 16th in busi­ness!) draws to a close. Our thanks to everyone who in 2008: pro­vided the ref­er­ence, signed the check, took the photo, styled the shot, found the loca­tion, edited the copy, drew the pic­ture, illus­trated the con­cept, wrote the code, vis­ited the studio, deter­mined the posi­tioning, sug­gested the paper, printed the brochure, proofed the color, drank the mar­garita, AND fed the inspiration.

The year included new projects with old friends at Sundance, Gump’s, Naturopathica, New Leaf Paper, The Golden Bear, Hlaska, TravelSmith, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. And we met new friends through projects with the California Academy of Sciences, Golden Star Tea Company, Stand & Deliver, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, New York Life, and Sandia National Laboratories. Our col­lab­o­ra­tions with our clients, col­leagues, and friends mean the world to us.

As we head into the new year — and into chal­lenging eco­nomic times for everyone — please know that we remain at your ser­vice. Call us if you are looking for ways to do more with less — and still present your best self while keeping your spending in check.

Wishing you a pros­perous and inno­v­a­tive New Year!

We’re excited to start the new year with a pro­file in the Jan./Feb. issue of Communication Arts. You’ll also find us online: on our blog (sub­scribe via RSS or email for client news and updates); on Facebook (become a fan); or at LinkedIn, where you can “link in” with each of us indi­vid­u­ally. Resolve to con­nect; we’d love to see what you are up to.

’nac, ’nac. Who’s there?

The new Sundance Almanac: A Catalog for Men. Elixir worked with Sundance to intro­duce an expanded offering of men’s apparel and acces­sories. The design is classic, rugged and warm — like a grey merino Henley wool sweater. The Holiday 2008 book shipped mid-October as a bind-in to the main sundancecatalog.com. Selected shop­pers {The A-for-Almanac List} will receive it as a self-mailer. For cozy shop­ping, all items are also on the web.
