Wendy Nuttall Business Cards
Wendy Nuttall is a photographer. We had the pleasure of designing a series of business cards for her as well as building her website. As you can see, her business cards mimic the cover page of her website, http://www.wendynuttall.ca/. It shows how important it is to establish a strong visual identity that everyone can relate to and recognize as yours. It's your face and your voice when you're not in the room to speak for yourself.

Sorrento 100
A small community commemorates its one hundredth anniversary! It was a year-long event that required everything from the printing of posters, calendars, plaques, stickers, and face tattoos, to flags that lined the streets and a new welcome sign on the highway, which is still to come. The visual identity was created by incorporating the number 100 into Sorrento's current logo and utilizing that as the focal point.

Voices of the Settlers

Voices of the Settlers
This community history book is the compilation of years of interviews, recordings and photographs. It was prepared through the Shuswap Historical Society in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the community of Sorrento, British Columbia. The second piece is a folder with an onionskin flysheet on which is printed a map of the community, the land subdivided into today's lots. It is superimposed over an identical map divided into the original homesteaders farms and orchards.

Fair Realty

Fair Realty Visual Identity
The Fair Realty visual identity serves double-duty for this husband and wife realtor team. By using their photograph on everything, from their presentation folder to the various advertisments they place in the newspapers and other directories in the community, it gives their potential customers the opportunity to become familiar with them. And, by superimposing their photograph over a photograph of our beautiful Shuswap, it helps to sell our community to potential customers in other communities.
