The holidays are such a busy time of year, but it’s nice to indulge in the fun and festivities of the season. Here in sunny Phoenix, Arizona the scenery isn’t exactly a winter wonderland, but there are a lot of exciting things to see and do. That was the inspiration behind the 2016 Prisma holiday box and its “Everything Arizona” theme. Each year the marketing team develops a creative and interactive gift for our clients to say thank you in a fun and memorable way.
Since adult coloring books are all the rage, we put out the word to graphic designers for submissions for the coloring book. The coloring book is filled with 10 pages of Arizona scenery, complete with a horned lizard, bobcat and Historic Route 66.
The gift also included a Holiday Office Gram, similar to a Candy-Gram or MadLib. Our verbal magician Sue, wrote the Arizona adventure copy that takes you through some of Arizona’s oldest Holiday traditions. The only rules were to use supplies in your office. And of course, the gift box included locally produced treats for our recipients to enjoy and share, thanks to our yummy partners at KettleHeroes and FairyTale brownies. The box and components were engineered by our packaging specialists.
We received over 40 submissions of the Holiday Office Gram, with some very creative ways to fill-in the blanks and complete the story.
THE WINNING OFFICE-GRAM GOES TO BRIAN J. ZAHN AT SOUTHERN GLAZER’S WINE & SPIRITS!
THE SUBMISSION EARNING SECOND PLACE ARE THE FOLKS AT IDEATION DESIGN GROUP.
