Where creativity, expression and intellect collide.

What’s a designer to do for inspiration? Take the family to see a Cirque du soleil production, Amaluna! There’s so much to take in like set design, costumes, music, lighting, story line, and of course the talented performers; it’s a creative cornucopia.

Amaluna was not my first Cirque show, however every time I attend, I find myself asking the same questions. What does it take to deliver a Cirque production? Who orchestrates the creative direction? How do the performers perform at such a high level day in and day out? So many moving parts, yet the presentation is seamless, in sync, to us. It’s obvious that not only is a Cirque production visually stunning, it’s beautifully thought-out.

Ironically, we often receive a similar response when we work on client projects. We develop creative directions while looking at each project from a broad perspective. We perform through our execution and production of the ideas, delivering a product that is in sync with the client’s needs and expectations. And yes, we do this day in and day out. Actually, it’s not surprising to see some similarities between a Cirque du soleil production and our process as designers. Our client’s work is beautifully thought-out too.

On a recent trip to Italy this storefront design grabbed me immediately. The rich character, warmth and quirkiness – pulled at me to go inside.

The shop owner of this meat, cheese and wine store in Siena, Italy was proud of his offerings; and rightfully so. His attention to detail was everywhere on the inside. Pizzicheria De Miccolino has no menu, the concept here is to use your senses. Look, smell, taste, chat and enjoy the atmosphere. Of course we purchased several picnics worth of savory goodies and left with a very unique experience too.

Prism is proud to announce that we have received four MarCom Awards: Platinum for our work on the BP Calendar and the One Park Place project; Gold for the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation fundraising brochure and the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation Annual Report; and Honorable Mention for our work on the Dream Spaces project.

Prism shares these honors with our writer Elizabeth Fordham at Quill & Ink.

“It’s gratifying to have our work given the thumbs up on a national level,” said Elizabeth. “What’s particularly rewarding is that our work is a true team effort. There are some aspects that are set in stone by the clients, but we also enjoy fluidity and flexibility as the project evolves. That’s where a project’s personality shines through and propels our work into the spotlight.”

The MarCom Awards is a competition honoring creative excellence in marketing and communications. The competition receives about 6,000 entries per year from corporate communications departments, PR firms, and advertising agencies around the globe. Entries are judged based on the quality and creativity of the submitted work. Winners receive either the Platinum Award or the Gold Award.
