Aqua Nights: Thank You! February 19, 2009

We had such a great time hosting this year’s After Party for the Docha Vida Bridal Walk on January 22, 2009.  WOW did we have some BIG WINNERS!  Congratulations to all you brides and grooms who won some AMAZING prizes!  We truly appreciate the support of the City of Chandler/DCCP and especially all of the hard work, dedication and creativity of the Downtown Chandler Merchants (especially: LightRain Images, Uptown Bridal, Images Salon, InPockets) that make this event possible for newly engaged couples.  What an AMAZING group of GREAT PEOPLE we are blessed to work with!  THANK YOU!  Light Rain caught some great candid shots of some VERY HAPPY Docha WINNERS!

The AFTER-PARTY theme was: AQUA NIGHTS an entire evening dressed in shades of blue with pops of color throughout Inspirador.  The evening would not have been possible without an incredible team of event professionals willing to consider BIG DESIGN IDEAS in varying BUDGETS and PRICE POINTS.  Their creativity and attention to detail is TREMENDOUS!  Did everyone see those GORGEOUS event chairs at the front doors of every merchant in Downtown Chandler?  Thank you Deb @ Tri Rentals…that was an extra SURPRISE for us all–STUNNING.  As a newly engaged couple please don’t be shy to call on these event PROS when you’re ready to throw the event of your life–no matter where you chose to tie the knot!   In the meantime, enjoy some eye candy images (courtesy of: kelvin photography http://www.kelvinphotographer.com/ ) of our vendor works & CREDITS:

Our most FAVORITE liquid elixir EVER is getting a new look and boy does it look good.  Nice clean lines.  Gorgeous intense color.  This is the kind of drink that would look good in any crowd!

From DesignNY: Design Firm Conquers Coke Problem, Gets Award

Thanks in part to anthropomorphic polar bears and overcaffeinated graphic designs, “Coke’s identity had become cluttered, uninspiring and easy to ignore.” But with the help of “identity and package design firm” Turner Duckworth, the world’s most recognizable sugar water brand received a fresh and clean new look that won a first ever Design Grand Prix award at Cannes Lions. The firm’s “iconization of heritage” concept included a streamlined aluminum bottle that were based on Coca-Cola’s signature glass bottles, a redesign of the cans, new signs/POS, and even graphics for delivery trucks. See some of the mods after the jump or download the full case study here: (PDF doc).

SHADED by John Koleszar February 4, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — inspirador @ 5:02 AM

Join us tomorrow evening WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2009 for the opening reception of “Shaded”, all new original artworks by John Koleszar.  This contemporary portraiture, created with Koleszar’s own inventive process, explores expression and individuality with humor and endearment.  Koleszar is a self taught artist, who has exhibited his work from San Francisco to Berlin.  His process of painting involves hand cut stencils, digital photography and spray paint.  “He’s edgy! He’s Cool! He’s got it goin’ on!”

Complimentary gourmet appetizers and wine will be served for all art loving guests. The opening will be held from 5-9pm where you can mingle with the artist and other cool art lovers alike.  Also, enjoy the creative works of live painters Brez and Closer on our front sidewalk during the Historic Downtown Chandler Art Walk.  The “Shaded” exhibition will hang through the end of February, with gallery hours Tuesday-Saturday, 10-5pm.  We hope to see you here!
