VISUALIZE being a winner… this is what PRISM is doing with it’s current self-promotion piece that’s being honored in the “Perfect 10” for Neenah Paper’s CLASSIC® Car Contest.

One of our goals for this project was to use color, pattern, and words to enhance the paper we chose. We brainstormed four “IZE” words to compliment PRISM’s ability to VISUALIZE: MODERNIZE, GLOBALIZE, FERTILIZE, and SOCIALIZE. The words were laser cut into sleeves allowing graphic imagery to peek through. Inside each sleeve is a graphic note card designed to “VISUALIZE” each IZE word.

Entries: about 800

Distinguished award: ability to creatively combine CLASSIC Papers, design and printing with style!

Perfect 10 Awards: 10 (we’re one of them!)

What we won: $500 greenbacks + kudos galore. You can see a picture of us on the Neenah Blog – Against the Grain.

Acceptance Speech: Thank you Neenah Paper! And thank you Becky Chaffin with OK Paper for getting us to enter. Kudos to Laser Cutting Shapes, and David Felts with Wrights Printing.


Gamma Phi-bulous fabric: the pink carnation

March 13, 2012

We’re working on pattern designs for Gamma Phi Beta sorority members so they can celebrate their official flower – the pink carnation – in a new (fabric) way!

We plan to tweak and/or complete more patterns than pictured here. We think the fabrics could be used to make gift totes, tablecloths, to cover big Greek letters for recruitment, or whatever members can dream up.

Our goal is to have several ready this summer (June 2012). Hopefully we’ll have some actual gift items made up, and for sure the actual fabric for sale. We’re pretty thrilled about this. We’d love to hear what you think. Ideas anyone? Which one’s your favorite? Leave us a comment.

This new Pink Carnation line of fabrics is inspired by the four founders of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority: Helen, Frances, Adeline, and Mary. You can read about them here. We’ll talk more about what this means as we complete our designs.
