Local designer wins national promotion

For the past three years local graphic designer and artist, Shirley Al has been the designer behind 11 awards presented to Wellington County municipalities including the most recent Economic Devel­oper’s Association  of Canada’s Market Canada award for Centre Wellington’s 2008 Sensa­tional Elora.

Al is delighted her work to develop the logo was so well received.

“It is special when recognized by your peers but it is also a recognition that we are on the right track in terms of our collaborative efforts to promote our business commu­nity.”

In 2007 and 2008 Al was the designer who, with Linda Reader, former economic development officer for Well­ing­ton North created the ad­vertising campaign for The Butter Tart Trail, which won six national Market Canada awards and the two Economic Developer’s Council of Ontario provincial awards of merit.
