2015: A Duggal Year In Review
2015: A Duggal Year In Review
2015 has been yet another fantastic year for Duggal Visual Solutions. We can’t thank everyone enough – our team, partners, clients and friends – for the incredible support.
As the year winds down, let’s press rewind and relive our most memorable moments. Here come the fireworks!
The Duggal Greenhouse continues to attract big names. In 2015, the Greenhouse was transformed into IBM’s ‘World of Watson,’ bringing together thought leaders from 26 industries in 32 countries for an interactive forum on IBM’s human-intelligent supercomputer.
At Duggal, every day is game day. We’re always fully immersed in the sports world, and 2015 was no exception. The year started with NBA All-Star Weekend coming to New York City.
We then continued several longtime traditions: 1) reproducing Major League Baseball’s official player portraits, 2) managing graphics at Belmont Park (which saw its first Triple Crown Winner since 1978), and 3) preparing the USTA’s 50-acre Billie Jean King Tennis Center for the US Open.
Wow, where do we start here? We’re privileged to collaborate with the world’s most respected fashion brands. This year’s highlights include David Yurman, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, UNIQLO, Tourbillon and many more. We even worked with Atrezzo, the world’s leading manufacturer of mannequins.
Art & Photography
Duggal holds art and photography close to its heart. We started as a small photo lab more than 50 years ago, and will never stop dedicating a large portion of our time toward helping artists and photographers bring their work to life.
First, let’s applaud our friends at the International Center of Photography. They’re doing amazing things over there, capped off by a move to the Bowery. We’re honored to be their graphics partner.
And how about Walter Iooss, the preeminent photographer of Michael Jordan’s career…His show in Chicago had basketball fans in nostalgia overload.
From Capital Art’s vintage Hollywood images, to Bob Bonis’ rare Beatles and Rolling Stones Archive, to the extraordinary travels of Peter Guttman, to Clifford Ross’ 25-foot-high photograph printed on wood, 2015 was nothing short of artistically brilliant.
Those of you who are familiar with our blog and newsletter know that we’re always doing something fun for Starbucks, too.
Speaking of coffee, Duggal’s packaging division produced the prototype packaging comps for Dunkin Donuts’ Colombian Packaged Coffee, the brand’s first-ever Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee. Duggal Packaging also helped celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann visualize her “Empire” nail polish set before it hit store shelves for the holiday season.
Architecture & Real Estate
Duggal has a great thing going with Real Estate Arts, the creative agency behind some of New York’s best-branded buildings. We were recognized in the 2015 CODAawards for our work with REA and the Taystee Building, and continued the momentum at 114 W 41st St. We also welcomed the Office for Design and Architecture to the neighborhood.
Last but certainly not least, Duggal Visual Solutions celebrated the opening of BLDG 25, a 100,000-square-foot production facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
“This is the fruit of all of our hard work, our consistent embracement of the latest technology, and the hundreds of combined years of experience on our team,” said Mike Duggal, CEO. “This building symbolizes who we aspire to be in the visual production industry, and that’s nothing short of the best in the world.”
Happy New Year!
And with that, cheers to 2016! We wish everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.
