This is some great exposure for the St. Louis design community - two shops representing on what is one of the finest design blogs for logo design and identy on the internet. Not to mention that they are both on the same damn block.
From Atomicdust's blog:
Organized by UnderConsideration, the Brand New Awards is a judged competition that celebrates the best identity work produced around the world. The competition places as much importance on concept and execution as it does on strategy and business decisions by focusing on the work itself, the process, and the client’s involvement.
There were more than 700 submissions from around the world, and only 75 were selected as winners - and two of them were for our work with Pastaria. It’s exciting to see our design work for a St. Louis business shown on a world stage.
Out of 297 worldwide entries in the logo category, only three logos were given a “five star” rating, the highest rating awarded. One of these was Atomicdust’s logo for Pastaria. Another was TOKY’s logo for the Woody Guthrie Center. To think that these came from the same block in St. Louis is pretty amazing.
