Public Image Design created a synergy between packaging concepts, national print advertising campaigns, social media and in-store promotional programs for several of our major clients including Frescobaldi, Cantina di Negrar and Santa Margherita which led to significant sales and market share increases.
Public Image Design’s early work on the Santa Margherita platinum sponsorship of the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life led to the winery receiving recognition from the LCBO with an Elsie Award for Social Responsibility. It’s design proposal for Cantina di Negrar Vino Novello won the winery the tender for an unprecedented 13 consecutive years at the LCBO with excellent sales performance each year. It was always fun to work with Daryl. While his unconventional ideas would sometimes surprise, his approaches would always help us rise above the “sea of sameness”, be favourably noticed and help us excel.
