Purolator unveiled its 2022 limited-edition holiday box designs that celebrate emerging Canadian artists, including Margeaux Guile from the Northwest Territories. Once again, last year’s artists each nominated a local artist to design the holiday boxes.
The unique boxes provide a festive way to ship during the holidays. This year’s collection spotlights the diverse ways families and communities eat, drink and celebrate the season together.
Guile is an illustrator and graphic designer from Yellowknife, N.W.T. She is inspired by the warmth good company brings throughout dark winter days.
“I’ve shown traditional foods gathered in the winter and orange light spilling out of the cabin to show the warmth we seek when we gather together in the winter,” said artist Margeaux Guile. “People are shown baking, playing cards and enjoying snacks together. I also highlighted gatherings in small places that occur when no one wants to be outside. Dogs help people in the territory travel and gather food – they are required for holiday get-togethers in the Northwest Territories.”
Artists from the Northwest Territories, Morgan Zoe and Melanie Jewell, have also been featured on past Purolator’s holiday boxes.
As part of this year’s campaign, Purolator is donating $5,000 to the Salvation Army Northwest Territories through its Purolator Tackle Hunger program. This is to help ensure everyone in the Northwest Territories has access to nutritious meals during the holidays. Since 2003, the grassroots program has delivered more than 18 million pounds of food to Canadian food banks.
