this week at Plaid:

Here's what happened this week at the world's most Plaid design and branding firm:

We won some more awards! Took home three "excellence" awards from the Art Directors Club, for our work on National Adoption Foundation, Mountain Workshop and Flambeau River Papers.

Meanwhile, our newest team member Matt took home a silver and shared in a gold award at the show - for work he had done previous to his post at Plaid. Matt kicked ass.

David art directed two photo and video shoots. And showed Brian our intern the difference between good and bad catering at a shoot.

I worked on a pitch with Diana, and Bill. It's going to rock. Fingers crossed. Rob pushed about six print projects out the door, which I'm sure felt great. He also designed some really cool hang tags, and began digging into a new website project.

Justus produced storyboards for a new video project we're working on. Old Rob completed design for a bus wrap, some identity work, and a website concept. Matt produced some beautious posters, and is working on a couple of brochures.

New blog design was launched for Plaid Nation, which will eventually become the dashboard for our first ever, upcoming summer tour. So much is happening on this front, and we'll have quite a few updates next week.

Our Plaid messenger bags arrived, for our first House of Plaid product. We're photographing the bags, and expect to launch the House of Plaid site next week.

We kicked out early today, and spent the afternoon at Lake Compounce Amusement Park. Nothing beats deadlines like a great roller coaster! Rob is pictured above, getting stoked to be twisted and turned upside down without a safety harness. Oh yeah - Brian got to ride his first ever roller coaster ride! And he didn't even blow chunks on the people behind him. We're so proud.
