Parcel is excited to announce that, as of November 5, we will align with Soapbox Design Communications, an award-winning studio that, over its 14-year history, has earned a reputation for nimble and meaningful design that gives brands a powerful voice.
By combining our talents, we will give clients the advantage of design-driven strategic thinking and highly engaging creative solutions. We will operate collectively as Parcel, but maintain the Soapbox brand to specifically serve non-profit and cultural projects.
Partners Julie Mitchell, Gary Beelik and Erin Brand will lead the firm.
Over the past 20 years, Gary has dedicated himself to creating a cultural connection between brands and their audiences. Gary has received numerous awards for his art direction from the Advertising & Design Club of Canada, Communications Arts, Applied Arts and Graphis. He is a graduate of the OCAD and currently sits on the board of the Advertising and Design Club of Canada.
We look forward to introducing you to our newly expanded team in person. To learn more, contact Julie Mitchell, Partner at 416-504-1200 ext. 222.

Braestone Ridge is a recent branding project we’ve undertaken to create a legacy for one of the last remaining parcels of land in the Horseshoe Valley. Originally settled by Scottish farmers centuries ago, its rugged and diverse landscape will create a stunning home for a few lucky families looking for a way of life that’s back to basics.

Ophea (Ontario Physical Health Education Association) is one of those clients you just can’t help but be inspired by. Here we are on-set at a video shoot we’re producing that will help spread the word about the very important work Ophea does, which is to help encourage healthy schools through the development of physical education and health programs. These kids are from Highgate Public School and everyday 600 of them gather outside for 20 minutes of dancing. Thank you to all, particularly the staff and students from Highgate for giving us such a great lesson in team spirit!

Traveled by train to Kingston to speak at Impact Innovate 2010, a Youth Entrepreneurship Conference. It’s always great to share your experiences growing your brand and business. Not only is it a good reminder of how far you’ve come and what you’ve learned along the way, it’s a great source of inspiration for where you can take your business next.
