Remember Me was created during the COVID-19 pandemic when many of our friends and family members lost their lives. With restrictions in place it was difficult to connect families and friends together to express our deepest condolences therefore this concept was created to keep online profiles of deceased people.

The emotional suffering people feel when their loved ones are taken away can be very strong and devastating and this platform will help them to never be forgotten and ease off their pain. A person on this online platform could be of any religion faith or none, any age or set of personal circumstances. In addition, Remember Me book records will collect data of all those who have fulfilled our lives and be there for years to come.

PCOV

In 1961 a group of Portuguese sport enthusiasts joined together and created a club to unite the community away from their homeland. At the time, they faced several challenges running the club, however with help of volunteers it was manageable. PCOV began introducing Portuguese cuisine into their menu as they wanted to share their cooking expertise with Vancouver’s community. Until today, they continued running the business without their brand identity. The scope of this project is to build their brand identity to increase their brand awareness and better customer relationship. It will also target younger audiences (age 30-40) to their business and pass on their tradition to new generations. This would require PCOV to undergo a major rebranding to appeal to the above-mentioned demographic. This process would undergo re-shaping the face of the company and building a strong branding and marketing collateral. The PCOV will be branded based on authentic Portuguese cuisine, wine and will continue to be involved with community events.

Absolut Royal

Originally constructed in 1910, this 11 storey heritage office tower will undergo a complete restoration to provide much needed residential space in the fast growing area of the city. To meet the residential demands in Vancouver, The London Building has been recently approved by the city to be converted into new housing under the new management. In order to attract potential customers interested in the renewed suites, we will be rebranding The London building with comprehensive advertising campaign. The branding and marketing collateral will be developed based on the London theme. Our in-house services will include: branding outdoor, print and digital advertising as well as presentation folder and landing page.

XI Monarch

When it comes to grape vines, old is gold. Old-vine wines deliver textural richness and layered flavours that build rather than trail off after the up-front fruit fades away. It’s analogous to the warm, rich tone of an old violin versus the brighter timbre of new wood. XI Monarch was designed to serve two purposes. It highlighted the wine’s candied-fruit exuberance and permitted the winery to reserve its older-vine fruit for a more expensive flagship on It’s (red, rose and white) collections.

JuJu Essences

Having a hair care routine can become challenging for today’s busy lifestyle. The process of finding that routine can seem a little daunting, especially when there’s numerous options for people with the same hair type or colour with little hints to visually identify. Juju Essences was created to be visually recognizable and seen easily on the store shelf. The design uses a curly hair girl illustration to be the symbol of the product because women usually like to identify themselves by the looks of others. By creating packaging matching hair colours like black, brown, and blonde, it will facilitate easier search for the products in the store.

Magnificent Little Pigs

The “Magnificent little pigs” is a collection created for children (7-10 years old) who struggle reading or have learning and attention difficulties. The concept was based on Reading Rockets survey of parents and educators of children with learning and attention difficulties. The survey shows that the most engaging and motivating books kids pick up and keep reading are books with certain genres (action, adventure, mysteries, fantasy and humour rich on graphics and illustrations. This book intends to engage and motivate children with an adventure of two little pig siblings. An especially appealing story very easy to read will help parents who have children with learning difficulties. The book will be available online, in bookstores and kids stores.

Boost 747

The Boost 747 is an energy drink concept created to target audience between ages 18 to 25. It was designed to inspire young adults who like to indulge themselves into science. The idea behind the name Boost was based on the energy force that has no uplift limits. The number 747 was chosen to symbolize the meaning of lift, a mechanical aerodynamic force produced by the motion of the airplane. In order for an aircraft to rise into the air, a force must be created that equals or exceeds the force of gravity. Based on this concept the Boost 747 will stand out from its competitors and create a new level among energy drinks.
