Halifax creative team’s history of achievements recognized at Toronto’s Canadian Regional Design Awards.
Creative boutique, Burke & Burke, was honoured yet again by The Canadian Regional Design Awards (Redgee Awards) in Toronto on November 12th, this time, as the winner of the Legacy Award for the Atlantic region in the Boutique category (firms with a staff of 2-5). Timing of the award coincided nicely as the firm celebrates its thirtieth year of business in Halifax this year.
This special Legacy edition of the Redgee Awards celebrates a firm’s body of work, rather than specific recent projects. Entrants each submitted five representative portfolio pieces and case studies produced over the last ten years for industry judges to evaluate as a whole. The Award, according to its website, was developed to recognize and celebrate the rich history of Canadian creativity and excellence.
The Burkes’ winning entries, chosen from their work of the previous ten years, included the visual identity and signage program developed for Crombie’s Scotia Square in 2006, a highly successful back-to-school “scribbler” campaign developed for Mic Mac Mall in 2007, and more recently, the international consumer brand, website, and packaging developed for PEI’s Mussel King. The newest creative work to be recognized was the website they developed this year for Veterans Emergency Transition Services – VETS Canada, a national humanitarian organization helping homeless veterans, and veterans in crisis.
The Burkes and their creative team are thrilled to showcase their work – especially in the categories focused on business branding and web development, both of which represent core areas of expertise at Burke & Burke Design. The firm is currently engaged in branding and web development projects locally, in other parts of Nova Scotia, in Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Ontario, and as far away as British Columbia.Back to Home Page
