News & Recent Work:
Our favourite West Coast Vancouver Island resort and long-term client. We just launched their new WordPress site which showcases the years of scenic and cabin photos that we've accumulated while holidaying and working there. Yeah. We know, it's a tough job, but sometimes we just have to cowboy up and get 'er done!
This bilingual WordPress site has cut the association's web maintenance time to a fraction of their previous system. We also reduced admin and updates by linking directly to the faculty information for each of the 10 univertities across Canada.
This new BC micro distillery retained us to develop their brand. Scope of work included name development, bottle design and packaging. Bottles are being manufactured now and product will be distributed in early 2014. Guess what we'll be serving for office libations!
Work included the bottle and box design, brochures, posters and sales collateral.
We used the Twitter Bootstrap theme for a new Wordpress site for Jeweller Kristen Jones. This fully responsive theme reformats content nicely for mobile devices — and looks great on your desktop too. Take a look!
Time flies! Our original website for Colourbox Hairdressing launched in 2005 and still looked pretty good (even with 760 px wide tables for those whopping 800 x 600 monitors). But after Barb mentioned how old it was, we thought perhaps it might be time for a little update!
Our international DRM campaign design solicited the best response ever for UBC's Annual Giving international campaigns and netted a 77% increase in number of donors. It also garnered a gold award for best DRM brochure from the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education.
We're very excited to see our Commercial Drive umbrella project featured in the 2012 Communicaiton Arts Design Annual. When the street banners we design are replaced with a new edition, we turn the old ones into reusable nylon shopping bags and these vibrant umbrellas — just what you need to keep the rain and the winter blues at bay. Get the full story and buy one on-line!
Guess you could call this our pet project – literally. As neophyte apiarists, we set up a pair of bee hives on Galiano Island. In the last week of August we saw the workers evicting the drones. Here's a short video that illustrates just why it sucks to be a drone.
We just launched 4 new custom-designed WordPress sites for Days Hospitality Inc — the parent company of a Holiday Inn and 3 Ramada Inns in western Canada. Our detailed proceedure guides got their admin staff up to speed quickly with WordPress. You can follow the links in the lower left of their site footers to see the sister sites.
From name development and logo design to writing, design and production of marketing communications and production of their new Wordpress site — start to finish was an 8 week project with a roll-out that we're all proud of!
This campaign profiles some great Commercial Drive businesses and puts an unexpected spin on merchants by featuring them as customers. Our custom content on the Drive's Facebook page invites you to share similar Drive stories for a chance to win $500. If we use your suggestion for a new ad, you also get a $100 gift certificate to spend at the Drive business of your choice.
We thought salt shakers with no holes might be a good start! If you know a source, please let us know.

What to do with all those old Commercial Drive street banners we've designed over the years? Let's keep them out of the landfill and put them into the hands of Commercial Drive patrons as reusable nylon shopping bags!
Check out the reduction in environmental impacts this program has yielded as well as the amazing support of Commercial Drive retailers who are donating all proceeds to the creation of new public green spaces in the neighbourhood.
New website for a unique North American transport company. Since launching the identity in 1998, we have helped position Western Logistics as the preeminent office furnishings transport company. Their new website has just distanced them from the competition — again. See some of the other work we've done over the past decade.
Ah, with all due respect, this was not acceptable packaging! Take a look at our rebranding for this great restaurant.
Read the short story on our Social Enterprise and Sustainability initiatives. These little brochures are great snapshots of our own efforts on these fronts and show how we've helped our clients move things along farther and faster.
