ACM Awards

ACM Awards

Through an arduous selection process in which 59 contenders from across the U.S. were narrowed to 16 and then one, Riordon Design was chosen to design this “Grammy” of the American country music industry. Although the scope of the project was focused on the award, we identified a need to address the broader issue of the Academy of Country Music brand. As a result of our efforts, the new award has come to serve as the anchor for the organization’s overall identity. In designing the award, we partnered with R.S. Owens in Chicago, the company that produces the Oscar, Emmy and MTV Awards. The statuette, bearing the curves of a stylized cowboy hat, stands a graspable 12.5” high, weighs 5 lbs. and is finished in a sleek and modern satin silver.

While preparing to open its newly constructed Global Innovation Centre, GE invited Riordon to design typographic display walls in one of the most innovative areas of the state-of-the-art facility. The scale of the typographic walls and intricacy of the interplay of words and phrases in five different languages – recessed and embossed on four large Corian wall panels – made for some challenging planning. The scope of work soon expanded to include backlit typographic headers, a frosted wave pattern for glass walls and doors throughout the building, way-finding signage and three illuminated poster displays. The outcome satisfied our client’s imagination and we’re proud to have had the opportunity to add this very unique project to our body of work.

Bash Panache

Bash Panache

Interior designer and creative force, Wendy Reimer, approached Riordon with a new venture offering rental collections and services for events of all shapes and sizes. Her eye for all things design makes her collection of vintage, antique and new treasures unmatched. We began this journey with a vision for a seamless experience that soothes the ever-gruelling event-planning process. We developed a custom identity that exudes the same playful and exciting personality as the name and crafted a fun, conversational approach to all brand messaging. From there, we designed and developed a website that showcases the beautiful collections and allows event-planners to create a personal Wishlist for their event. Bash Panache has been growing in presence and recognition ever since, being featured on Breakfast Television and developing a quickly growing social media following.

JRB Group

JRB Group

When we initially engaged with Jon Bowman of JRB Group regarding his brand, he also was about to start a new design/build residential development in the heart of Oakville’s heritage district. The ambitious timeline drove a tight process and necessitated toggling on urgencies related to both the corporate website and the project website. Riordon was involved in designing the brand identities for JRB Group, Boreal Capital and 331 Sheddon Avenue, the two websites, marketing material and interior/exterior site signage, advertisements, invitations, brochures and other collateral. This beautiful development of 19 luxury estate flats in a uniquely situated area of historic Oakville is getting lots of buzz—and the feedback on the presentation for both the JRB Group brand and the 331 Sheddon Avenue brand continues to produce the results everyone worked so diligently to create.

Hummingbirdhill Homes

Hummingbirdhill Homes

Having already built an impressive portfolio of home design and builds which received significant profile on both HGTV and Canadian House & Home magazine, Aaron Miller (CEO) of HummingbirdHill Homes realized it was time to invest the same effort into his own brand for the purpose of leveraging greater business opportunity. Riordon guided Aaron through a comprehensive process that started with a brand experience review to identify what was and wasn’t working with his communications (both visual and in messaging). From there we crafted a common voice to brand communications, designed an identity that was unique and appropriate for the brand, created a new website to present HummingbirdHill’s impressive body of work and to educate new audiences on HummingbirdHill’s competitive difference – building ‘net-zero’ certified homes with passion and care. Further roll-out of marketing collateral was created to fulfill promotional objectives.

Lorpon Labels

Lorpon Labels

Lorpon Labels, an established, family-owned label company in Toronto, has a long-standing reputation for creating innovative label solutions for its clients – quality materials, consultation and service being at the core of their value offering. With 30 years of packaging success behind them, Lorpon wanted to evolve their brand perception from “manufacturer” to “label expert” – which required a completely different position and presentation to the market. Riordon partnered with Lorpon and marketing agency, The Mezzanine Group, to create a new brand experience for these leaders in the label industry. With a bold tagline, “Own The Shelf”, in place, an equally bold and modular brand identity was required. This new system showcases their value while successfully connecting them to a broader audience.
