GCD: Concrete Christmas [Ornaments]

Midwest Media and Marketing was looking for something heartfelt and real, something…local, to give this holiday season. Sure enough, that started our wheels spinning and wouldn’t ya know it, we landed right in the middle of our favorite material…concrete! There is always a motivation behind the beauty of what we create. So here’s a look at a little process, passion, and product.

We start with a simple rough cut aluminum ring, then we grind it, and punch some rivets through it…and after that it’s a secret…but we have fun! ;)

The rings are poured and then acid dipped and fired to get a beautiful array of coloration. We love getting that crisp delineation between the old gray concrete and the new etched white…

We also love to play with packaging. It always takes a product to a whole new level when the packaging is well conceived and produced. We went minimalist with this project, with simple craft brown boxes and white tissue paper. The ornament nestled in nice and sweet with a wonderful little note resting on top. A beautiful way to say Merry Christmas, from all of us to you!

If you ever want a custom concrete piece or have an idea for something you think we could help you produce, don’t every hesitate to email us. You can find us on our website www.greencouchdesign.net and we would love to hear from you. We can’t wait to work with others on custom gifts and wonderful little tokens of appreciation.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and have a Wonderful New Year
