Breaking into a new habit

At Kalico, we appreciate the importance of a healthy work environment and try to maintain healthy work habits as well. One of those important habits is the need to take a daily break. In many industries, breaks play an important and necessary role in our overall health and sanity. However, as essential as it may seem to the daily workflow, taking a break certainly can be hard.

Kalico wins American graphic design awards

We are thrilled to have been awarded four American Graphic Design Awards! For several decades, Graphic Design USA has sponsored design competitions that spotlight areas of excellence and opportunity for creative professionals. GDUSA’s American Graphic Design Awards are the biggest and broadest of these competitions, open to everyone in the community including advertising agencies, graphic design firms, corporations, associations, universities, publishers and more. With over 8,000 entries, only a highly selective 15% are recognized with a Certificate of Excellence award. Needless to say, we are beyond excited!!

This past weekend we celebrated the rockin’ talents of the advertising and design industry in the Greater Frederick region at the AAF-GF’s American Advertising Awards (formerly known as the ADDYs). With a rock theme complete with live entertainment performing the likes of Twisted Sister, Guns n Roses, and Van Halen (not to mention event collateral created by us—BAM!), needless to say, we had a BLAST!
