Ginger and the Snaps

A&E - The Graphics Complex, a division of Thomas Reprographics, entered the 2nd Annual Gingerbread Build-off, sponsored by the Architecture Center (ArCH) and hosted by C2 Creative on Saturday, on December 11th in Houston. The Thomas Reprographics team won 2nd place! The team, named “Ginger and the Snaps”, consisted of Debby Joiner, Claire Lopez, Ed Stevelman and Ashley Ford. It was a great day filled with tough and creative competition! 25 teams of up to five people each competed in this year’s build-off. In addition to the coveted Grand Prix de Show, prizes were given in categories including Best Architectural Icon, Tallest Standing Structure, Best Traditionally Themed, Best Non-Traditionally Themed, and Most Creative Use of Materials. Gingerbread buildings were judged by an independent panel of food, design, art, and architecture professionals. Following the Build-off, winners and select competitors will be featured in a one week exhibition, free and open to the public, at Architecture Center Houston.
