Once upon a time, about a week ago, the CADC held their 40th Annual Awards Show in Hartford. The halls were brimming with inspiring work, delicious food and amazing creatives from all over Connecticut.

I was shocked and honored to receive 4 awards for Local Legends Potato chips. It was like a fairytale walking up for my first ever Judges award!

Here are the words from the Judge, Mark Hess, about the Local Legends Illustration Judges Award:

“The wholly unexpected whimsey and simple depiction of lighthearted subjects relating to the flavors not always associated with potato chips is refreshing and attractive; which, added to the retro-based complementary typography/graphic treatment creates a strong brand identity hard to ignore. The illos capture a wood-cut, hand painted mentality which suggests a simpler bygone time perfect for, and rarely used, in this product segment. They are simple, color restrained, decorative, tell-a-story, and are so spontaneous and hand-made looking that they feel like old friends.”

I also received a gold award for the Illustration, a gold award for the package design and a silver award for the website.

To keep us quirky creatives entertained they had a festive photo booth and customized shades.
