Spring is finally starting to show its bright colors – a little slower than we’d like – but anything is better than the brutal Chiberia we experienced this winter. Every year with spring comes flowers, lunches outside, a few after-work beers on the local rooftop bar, and that urge to do some spring cleaning. Here at Haugaard, we are embracing spring and all of its glory. Martina’s plants are soaking up the sun on her office windowsill, the Starbucks downstairs put their outdoor tables up and we’re looking to expand our already talented team! This year, we are taking spring-cleaning to a whole new level by revamping our blog to keep you updated monthly on our projects, our team and all of our adventures. To start, we would like to show you our past year and how awesome our team is.
Warning: You may get a little jealous – if so, just head to the homepage to see our open positions!
Our Annual Summer Outing: Last summer we took the ever-popular Architecture Boat Tour, something we recommend to every Chicagoan, and not just when your relatives are visiting!
Halloween: It’s a struggle for us at Haugaard not to eat ALL of our annual candy-covered apple treats, but when our designers make such a great card, we can’t resist sharing them with you all.
Haugaard Cleanup: We couldn’t exactly wait for spring to do our cleaning,
so we got a head start and made a team effort to clean our office space. It’s looking pretty shiny and new!
The Holidays at Haugaard!
Gift Giving: This holiday at Haugaard we really got into the spirit of giving and connected with Catholic Charities to help families in the city who have fallen on hard times.
We each got a specific family member and their holiday wish list, traveled to the city Target, and bought coats, hats, dolls, strollers and other gifts for these families. We had a blast and were so excited to be able to bring some happiness to Chicagoans in need.
Holiday Party: Pictionary, Maggianos, holiday music and a talented, fun team.
What else would make this the ultimate Haugaard Holiday party? Maybe the ladies of the company beating out the men in both Taboo and Pictionary… we don’t like to brag though.
Haugaard Yankee Swap: You’ll never guess how much Martina made off of those lottery tickets… and we’ll never tell, but they sure were a hot
commodity at this year’s Haugaard Yankee Swap.
Here are just a few of our projects we are proud to say we created and developed this past year:
Cap’n Crunch’s Sprinkled Donut Crunch Cereal Box:
We may have had a few too many donuts throughout the creative process designing the new Capn’ Crunch Sprinkled Donuts cereal, but all that sugar in our systems helped inspire this great package!
Kid Cuisine Limited Edition Rio 2: It POPS off the shelf – literally, if you have some 3D glasses on. Our very talented Senior Designer Ed made this Limited Edition Kid Cuisine box unforgettable by creating 3D graphics.
Mother’s Bumpers Cereal Box: We refreshed the Mother’s Line of kids cereal introducing great taste and excitement to the “better for you” cereal category.
Cap’n Crunch Snack Mix and Treats: New and fun offerings from the Cap’n as he ventures out to the snacks category!
We hope you enjoyed our year as much as we did! Keep an eye out for future posts about our company and our talented team!
