OTTAWA, Aug. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - McMillan's work was recently recognized in
not one but two of the industry's most prestigious award competitions:
Communications Arts and Applied Arts.
The 2006 Annual Report for the Forest Products Association of Canada,
designed by McMillan Art Director Lisa Rickenbacher, will be featured in
Design Annual 48, the November 2007 issue of Communication Arts, and in
Applied Arts' November Annual.
"This is a huge achievement for us, and for Lisa in particular," says
Gordon McMillan, President and Chief Creative Officer. "You always hope to be
included in one of these prestigious annuals. But to be included in both
… we are thrilled. It's also a testament to the great partnership we've
established with our client."
McMillan has been FPAC's agency of record since 2004, when it was awarded
the business following a competitive process. Since then McMillan has
developed branding, corporate collateral, print, broadcast, online and outdoor
advertising campaigns, and the organization's website. This is the second year
that McMillan designed the FPAC annual report.
