Logo’s Creator Receives Award

January 27, 2014 | By | No Comments

RGB_Logo_440_wide

Jonathan Wood, the creator of our new identity, was one of 154 graphic designers selected for a prestigious Communication Arts award. The 2014 Typography Annual received 1,894 entries from around the world for competition across 15 different categories. Jon’s award was in the “Identity” category.

Now, busier than ever, we managed to steal some time away to catch up with Jon. When asked what the award meant to him he said that it was, “the most selective juried visual design competition in the world, having work published in Communication Arts is a huge honour for any designer. It also means that the Burnaby Velodrome brand will be seen by a large international audience. Definitely a nice addition to the palmares.”

Congratulations Jon on a job well done!

According to the Communication Arts website:

Since 1959, Communication Arts has published the best in visual communications from around the world. To find the best work, CA sponsors creative competitions that recognize the finest talent in the industry. Winners are selected by juries of their peers and published in our must-have annuals.

The Beer Passport

January 23, 2014 | By | No Comments

For those of you that haven’t been out to our Feature Friday Night Race Series presented by Livestock and Incase, you may have heard of our Beer Passports but not fully understand them. Allow us to explain…

The Feature Friday Night Race Series is supposed to be about showcasing the best our area has to offer both on and off the track. While the racing is going and the music playing, we’re showcasing one of the area’s fine microbreweries in our beer garden (must be 19 or older with valid ID). Up first was Parallel 49; in November, just in time for their two year anniversary, Coal Harbour Brewery. On Valentine’s Day we were wowed by Four Winds Breweries’ Saison and IPA and in March it’ll be 33 Acres on tap.

How it Works:

Each night you come into the beer garden you get one stamp. Collect all of the stamps and you’ll walk away from the last FFNRS event in March with a commemorative pint glass (while supplies last). And, as a way of showing our appreciation for those that made it out to every race, if all of your stamps are from us the first pint is on the house!

“So what happens if I didn’t make it out to one of the previous races,” you may ask. Not to worry! You can catch up by buying a pint (or sleeve where pints aren’t available) at one of the following locations, be sure to ask for the stamp. Then be sure to come out to our FFNRS season finale on March 21st for the last stamp in your passport.

For Parallel 49, their tasting room is located at: 1950 Triumph Street, Vancouver, BC V5L1K5

For Coal Harbour Brewing, go to Great Bear Pub: 5665 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC, V5H2G4

For Four Winds Brewing Co., head to their tasting room at: 4-7355 72nd St., Delta, BC V4G 1L5

 

See you at the races!
