2016 Holiday Card: Behind the Scenes from Design Is Yummy on Vimeo.

Holidays to us are all about enjoying time with loved ones, eating and taking it easy. We are very excited to share our 2017 holiday card/calendar.  This year our focus was on letting our clients know how thankful we are to be part of their trusted team and how we see it as our role to make their lives easier. For this piece we did what your mother always told you not to do- play with food. Our game: lettering. We handcrafted the poster side phrase “Rolling With Us Is Easy As Pie” from different edible materials (pie dough, sugar, jam and cookies) adding almonds, cranberries and pine to decorate the message: We added a QR code on the front of the poster to ...

Wirewerks Holiday Cards image

We love working with our clients to create custom holiday cards and promotions. Here’s a feature of one we designed recently for Wireworks. This high performance fiber optic and copper solutions provider wanted a unique card to complement their brand identity. We took the challenge and created this clean snowflake illustration built from elements of their logo. The result is a simple design that stays true to the essence of their company. Holiday cards and direct mail pieces are a great way to keep your company fresh in your client’s minds without asking for anything in return. They give them those nice best wishes we all want to hear at the end of the year. Need a holiday or greeting card for your company? Get ...

Dare to be Seen 2016 image

Last week the Design is Yummy team took a trip to Veritiv’s Design and Print Excellence Awards 2016 (AKA our Paper Disneyland). We enjoyed getting inspired by the work and interacting with the new paper textures trending in the printing world from some of the most reputable paper mills in the world. In the design-trend aspect, this year we noticed a lot of metallic foil, hot stamping, holographic effects and colourful two toned pictures mixed with elegance and simplicity. The look.. Pizazz! Thank you Veritiv for hosting another successful event. Looking forward to the next event.

Drinking and Drawing: Color-it-Yourself Wine Labels image

Colouring books for adults have been super popular this past year. This idea has been to the next level thanks to Windsor Vineyards’ color-it-yourself wine labels. The winery created a line of black and white line-art labels to satisfy the arts-and-crafts drinking enthusiast in all of us. When ordering one of their 50 wine options, you are able to customize its label by choosing from a repertoire of mandala patterns. You also have the option to add messages; a feature that provides you with flexible text editing options to change the font, color, size, and even the spacing. Love it! Wine not get creative?

From Sick to Fierce, SickKids Nails It image

What an uplifting campaign for SickKids in Toronto! Instead of playing on the deflated feeling of being sick, Chief Creative Office Carlos Moreno from Cossette envisioned an empowering video showing the strength and bravery of the patients in their personal battles. Stepping away from their past sentimental campaigns is a fierce and bold move. Even though the message is strength over sadness, this “VS” campaign still brings a tear to our eyes. Watch this empowering video above!
