Project Background: Dairydell Canine’s 1st Annual Barkie Awards was an exclusive by-invitation-only event for their most loyal customers & their dogs. The party was designed as a fun way to thank & honor their clients & canine pets, while gathering valuable video testimonials and on-line reviews for Dairydell ~ a premier dog boarding & training services based in Sonoma county California.

Client: Camilla Gray-Nelson, Dairydell Canine, Inc.

Project Scope: On a very tight deadline, Grey Visual adapted existing illustrative art (produced for Dairydell on an earlier occasion) to create these humorous Barkie Award Certificates. Design factors requiring some care were the balance between a light-hearted humorous approach and appropriately “official” elements like the ornate edging, silvery titling, and a decorative script accent font.
