Nanaimo’s Primal Communications were big winners at the International Gallery Awards in December, bringing home 12 plaques.

A graphic design studio, Primal led the way with three gold awards for its design on a special places brochure, created for Tourism Vancouver Island.

“We were delighted to learn that Primal Communications has been honoured with triple gold awards for the terrific work on our  brochure,” said Dave Petryk, CEO Tourism Vancouver Island. “This is a very special project for us and they were able to make our visions a reality.”

Primal’s qualified buyers brochure designed for The Ridge at Glen Oaks development in Nanaimo won a gold and silver award.

Of the thousands of entries submitted from 17 countries, Primal took home six gold awards, four silver, one bronze and one honourable mention.

Adjudication for the awards took place in October and November and was conducted by the International Association of Printing House Craftsmen. Primal received its awards on Dec. 23.

“It was a great Christmas present,” said Robert Dodds, Primal president.
