Today, we rewind 30 years and celebrate the first of many international design awards presented to @mackaywong.



















In January 1992, the lads received word that the Spectrum Awards jury in NYC, were struck by their bold and detailed reptilian vision for the Pete & Marty’s Restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario.

Fourteen outstanding projects that creatively showcased the use of ceramic tile received Diamond Awards and the winners were invited to Chicago in May to compete for the prestigious Grand Diamond Award. SHOTGUN!!

To nobody’s surprise, except perhaps Gord and Ron’s, THE SNAKE took first place alongside The Team Disney Building designed by the renowned Japanese Architect Arata Isozaki. Good company indeed!

Many thanks to Jim Burnard and his team at COLORCO Ltd in Merrimack, New Hampshire for their passion and craftsmanship.

Can anyone guess what species of snake modeled for Gord and Ron??
