March 13, 2015 9:10 pm Published by Leave your thoughts Tasked with the challenge to create an iconic piece of art for Taste of Vail’s 25th anniversary April 8-11, local ad firm and event sponsor Avid Design put their best talent to the test. The selected design, created by Art Director Coni Terrado, was considered a labor of love given her brief hiatus and recent return to Vail.
