|The creative team extraordinaire at Goose Lane Editions has won a Redgee Award!The Canadian Regional Design Awards (the Redgees) 2013/14 were announced in Toronto on Monday April 28th to a packed crowd of top designers from across the country in attendance to celebrate the best in Canadian design.
Goose Lane’s Creative Director, Julie Scriver, was on hand to pick up the award for Print Design, Best of Region (Atlantic Canada) for the design of The Metamorphosis: The Apprenticeship of Harry Houdini, by Bruce MacNab. Designed by Jay Haworth and art directed by Julie Scriver, The Metamorphosis provides a unique perspective on Harry Houdini’s early performances in the Maritimes before he hit the big time. The book’s design was enriched by rare period photographs and illustrations in the book, lending to the nineteenth-century feel of an untold chapter in the career of the man whose name is still synonymous with the word magic.
Chefs-d’œuvre de la Galerie d’art Beaverbrook (the French edition of Masterworks of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery), which was edited by Terry Graff, designed by Julie Scriver, and co-published by Goose Lane Editions and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, was a runner-up for the same award.
Now in its fourth year, the Canadian Regional Design Awards have become the most comprehensive survey of contemporary Canadian graphic design ever assembled. It divides the country into eight regions representing the best of Canadian design. Designers compete within their own geographic region. Top designers from each region judge the work, with the exception of design from their own region. The best-of-the-best is then highlighted with special recognition at the Canadian Regional Design Awards annual event in Toronto each spring.
