Celebrating a golden relationship.

June 6, 2016

Black tie or tie-dye? Classic or groovy. Iconic styles. Spy themed colors, patterns, and illustrations that visualize the essence of both James Bond and Austin Powers.

We experienced “partnership mojo” with the folks from Texas Center for the Missing (TCM) as they invited us to design the communications for their fundraising gala: “Super Spy Showdown”.

Texas Center for the Missing is here to serve the community. It’s a local nonprofit, dedicated to bringing hope and healing to the missing and their families through crisis intervention, prevention and community education.

For the design, we incorporated smart, creative and budget friendly print techniques so more of the funds raised would help keep children and loved ones safe, which in the end, won us Gold! The Gold Hermes Creative Award that is, for the TCM Super Spy Showdown Gala Invitation and Save the Date.

Easy and fun. Engaging for James Bond lovers and/or Austin Powers aficionados to choose their spy. From start to finish the communications featured popular movie titles, taglines and quotes.

A very simple angle cut and fold were included in the design of the save the date to introduce both James Bond and Austin Powers.

We’re delighted to share this accomplishment with TCM and look forward to future collaboration. Read more about the success of the gala showdown here.

PacoTech 25 Years

Pacotech

When PacoTech turned 25 this year, they wanted to celebrate their anniversary and share their achievements with their customers. They approached Prism to design a 25-year graphic to add to their current brand materials. However, with 25 years under their belt, Prism suggested that it was a crucial time for PacoTech to look to the future, build on their successes, and consider a brand refresh.

PacoTech is an information management consulting group that helps Fortune 500 companies in organizing their information resources. PacoTech looks at business records from a global perspective to help companies in controlling the creation, maintenance, retention, and disposal of their records.

To visualize PacoTech’s modern mission, Prism integrated both type and symbol in creating their logo. We designed the “o” symbol to represent how the company organizes their clients’ resources on a global scale.

The new logo then inspired our design of the complementing 25-year anniversary graphic. Born out of the global “o” and the criss-crossing linear elements was the triangular shape that is their unique 25-year anniversary graphic.

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.
