Welcome Meg!


We’re so excited to welcome Meg to the Rarebird family. Funny, quick-witted and oh so talented, Meg is a great addition to the team! Rarebird is now 1 and a half times our previous greatness. Or maybe even more.


Sign Stories


Eyecandy Signs’ new ad is out in the Autumn 2015 Local Connections! Rarebird developed a concept to embrace the community and collaboration-oriented content of the magazine: “Sign Stories” highlight Eye Candy’s local values and the relationships it fosters with clients. This edition features Sean Gallagher of Lion and Bright/Local Source.


Trivia Tidbit: This issue’s ad is full Agricola Street: Eye Candy, Rarebird and Lion & Bright businesses are all on the row.

A hint of Hand Maiden to come


These were a label of love, featuring 14 different patterns on real felt paper printed both offset and thermographic, with metalized poly/matte lam sticker overlays; many thanks to local firms BCT Atlantic and Maritime Labels & Packaging. Best of all, the sticker system allows for shorter, quicker turn print runs, and these beauties are cost neutral with the previous labels.

Stay tuned for a whole brand makeover.
