Refreshed Brand in the Fresh Air

This week is the FFaNY footwear show in NYC, so Anda stopped by to visit our clients in their Dynasty Footwear showrooms on Monday. It’s a great opportunity to see the brands that we collaborated on in full action. Pacifica™ and Pex™ are two brands that are being presented this week. The projects included logo design, packaging, signage and brand books (we’ll post these on our website portfolio soon). Meanwhile, one of the new Pex boxes decided to step outside to enjoy some fresh air before being bombarded by paparazzi.

GD USA American Package Design

We are pleased to announce that a recent project we designed for Dynasty Footwear received a 2014 American Package Design Award from Graphic Design USA (GD USA). Despite the urge, please refrain from asking for our autographs at this time. We simply can’t grip a Sharpie marker while holding all of our awards.
 
This project was promoted during last week’s shoe expo in NYC, so we wish the new product great success. The current edition Makalu brand shoes are sold at Shoe Carnival stores everywhere.

Anda Visits Dynasty’s Footwear Show: NYC

We were happy to stop by and visit our friends of Dynasty Footwear at their cool showroom in Midtown Manhattan yesterday. This week is the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFaNY) show and our client is promoting several new brands and styles of shoes, including two brands we recently collaborated on together: London Underground and Makalu Gift Edition (recently awarded a GD USA Best Packaging Award 2014 – more information coming soon!). It was snowing yesterday, so a pair of Makalu boots would have come in very handy…or very footy.
