Life after Death

Date: May 3, 2018 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

In the wake of Richard Howes’ untimely passing, his Presidential team has been wading through the waters trying to chart out a new course without our captain. It has been 5 short months since we lost Richard but in that time we have learned so much about ourselves and the skills that we have acquired through the years of working with Richard. In the past it was easy to rely heavily on his experience and knowledge by just asking “Richard do you know how…Richard do you remember this...

Spring into Gifts and Awards Season

Date: April 1, 2018 Author: Susanne Sukic Categories: Blog

With the promise of spring comes the bustle of the gifts and awards season. The sprouting greens come to life much like the vested efforts that led to the accomplishments of the past year. For many organizations it’s the time to celebrate the annual achievements of the student body, faculty, board, donor or volunteer contributions and professional excellence.

Relationships Matter

Date: March 1, 2018 Author: Richard Howes Categories: Blog

Editor's note: Richard Howe's very first blog on this site reflected the core values he instilled in all of us. We are pleased to repost this timeless insight. Recently I had the pleasure of making a donation to Toronto Rehab Foundation. It is interesting to trace the relationships that have meshed in order for that donation to happen. The donation was to the Toronto Rehab Foundation for their Stroke Research event: the Rocket Ride 4 Rehab. The Rocket is Howard Rocket, a former stroke...

Speaking with friends and colleagues attending the funeral ceremony, it became clear that Richard touched so many lives, with the same sentiments echoing over and over: Everyone was in a state of shock. How is...

R.I.P. Richard Howes

Date: January 17, 2018 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

It is with a heavy heart that I acknowledge the passing of my boss, my mentor, my friend, Richard Foster Howes (1954 – 2017). Richard lived and breathed this company. He nurtured it for over 25 years and watched it flourish and grow over the past 2 decades. This is his legacy, this company that he built along with many top level associates and artisans. Richard was able to walk into a space and visualize a design. His creativity was inspirational. He loved reading and learning and that...

Custom vs Customized Awards

Date: December 11, 2017 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

Editor's note: As we've just launched our sister website Awards by Presidential, it seemed like a good time to revisit an awards post from a couple years ago. Some manufacturers think that a custom award means slapping a name and logo on a catalogue piece. Although catalogue pieces are often designed to be customized that is not what we consider a “custom award”, as we have been designing them for over two decades. Instead, we take the ideas and intensions from our clients and transform...
