Week 9: Happy Canada Day!

Hello everyone, welcome back to the blog! This week has been exciting to say the least, as the long weekend inches closer and closer every day. In order to help all the employees celebrate, the company has decided to give out a set of coasters to everyone at the showroom and head office! I spent a large portion of this week printing, wrapping and packing all the sets of coasters. Although I won't be able to hand them out myself, I hope everyone enjoys the design and use it to make their Canada Day a little bit more special! Just as a reminder, the Cork House will be closed for the Canada Day this Saturday, but will be reopened on regular hours next Tuesday.

Aside from swimming in commemorative coasters, I also had a change of pace this week as I was tasked with designing a print ad for the Cork House! It felt like a breath of fresh air to be able to use colour again, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process of creating an ad that demonstrates the Cork House well and what it has to offer. The ad will be appearing in the Canadian Open annual magazine sometime in July. Although I can’t show the final version here, I have 3 designs that didn’t quite make the cut but I think still deserve to be seen!

 

That’s everything for this week. I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend and happy Canada Day!
