Heading out the door for some holiday cheer? Looking for a last minute Host gift on the way? Well look no further. Arrive in style with some festive treats; sweet sweet sweet macarons from Soirette Macarons and Tea. Last year around this time we were putting the finishing touches on packaging (and signage, and other materials) for our friends over at Soirette. At the time we did some holiday variations, however, Soirette didn’t open their doors until after the holidays, so the packaging variations we designed have not seen light of day until this month.

To celebrate the season, Shobna has launched into Christmas with a macaron collection including Gingerbread, Orange Spice, Roasted Chestnut, Mulled Wine, Cran-rosemary and Santa’s Milk & Cookies.

…And Soirette has also opened a cute little pop-up shop inside Holt Renfrew. Drop by while you are downtown wrapping up your X-mas shopping.

We’re happy to announce the exhibit we designed for the Chinese Canadian Military Museum Society titled “One War, Two Victories” and hosted at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa has been extended an extra month… until February 3rd, 2013.

“The exhibit explores the experiences of Chinese Canadians who served in the Canadian Military and Volunteer Services and in Allied war efforts during the Second World War. Though denied rights and subjected to widespread discrimination before the war, many Chinese Canadians volunteered for military service and related duties, helping to secure victory abroad and greater equality at home. The exhibition presents fascinating wartime stories of unforgettable men and women, and their remarkable contributions to Canada and to the Chinese Canadian community in war and in peace.”

It was an honour to be asked to design this inspiring exhibit. If you are in the nation’s capital over the next six weeks, please check it out (the rest of the museum is spectacular as well).
