Black & White


Our Inspiration

We set out to give Bar 197 a modern

speakeasy look, inspired by mixologists who

craft each martini or cocktail they create

with care. The rounded hipster design was

the perfect way to show that Bar 197 isn’t

your “pint of beer” pit stop – it’s a place where

customers are enveloped in a unique culture

apart from the mainstream. Cue a most

unforgettable experience.

> Saturday, December 7th is World Bartender Day, hence

why we’re featuring Bar 197 this month. Cheers!

This year’s calendar,

Creative Fun: A Year of Inspiring

Logo Trends, features one trend per

month and a corresponding logo.

We also provided a brief explanation about each

trend and shared our inspiration behind the design.

Not to mention, the cards sit atop a beautiful

bamboo stand, which can act as a cell phone

holder at the end of the year!

As for the packaging, the calendar and cell phone holder were placed inside a brightly

colored box and rested atop teal paper shred. Our team wanted to ensure that the

finishing touches were just as eye-catching and exciting as the calendar itself.

The hard work and dedication our team put into our calendar certainly paid off as it

not only received a Gold and the People’s Choice Award at this year’s ADDYs, but also

a Judge’s Choice. Our team would like to send a huge “thank you” to ADDY judge Kim

Dow, owner of Sass Creative Studios, Frederick, MD, for selecting our calendar as her

Judge’s Choice.

“The Ideaworks calendar was one of the entries in which I read every single

component. I thought it was intelligently done. The concept was great, the idea

was great, and I would love to get this in the mail. I loved how Ideaworks featured a

logo trend each month and had a sample to go along with it. Then, they took it one

step further and tied the logo into a holiday that occurs in that particular month. I

thought everything really worked together, and then the packaging was a lot of fun

as well.” - Kim Dow, ADDY judge & owner of Sass Creative Studios

If you’d like an Ideaworks calendar, please email chelseyt@ideaworks.marketing.

We’re happy to send one your way, as it is our hope that it will inspire you to let

creativity rule throughout the remainder of the year.
