We want to wish everyone reading a very happy, peaceful and successful new year!
2010 was a great year for Palettera. I can’t express how excited I am for 2011. Design allows me to define my story professionally; personally, design work acts as a way of working through life challenges. Design is my platform for celebrating great ideas, story-telling, growing love for craftsmanship and connecting to the community. Looking back on 2010, it was indeed a HUGE year for us. Palettera was officially born as a studio and retail space, and we have met some awesome clients this year. Our projects were interesting, challenging, and provided ways for us to build our overall narrative as a boutique design firm.
Editorially, we were published in Canada’s best bridal magazines: Weddingbells and WedLuxe. We were honoured to be invited onto the Style Me Pretty, Wedding Co. & Grace Ormonde’s Lists of Industry bests. The year was topped off with a “Best of 2010” award for excellence in stationery design from WedLuxe Magazine. Our work was exclusively invited to be on display at Vera Wang Toronto, in Yorkville, and we completed projects for some exciting VIP’s including Hugo Nicholson, Drs. Ashley Chow & Jay Geddes and the wonderful Romona Keveza. Thank you to Roseanne from Weddingbells and Angela & Carolyn at WedLuxe who are great supporters of Palettera’s vision and work!
