Consulting & Instruction, Illustration & Graphic Design, Web Design & Development, Logos, Branding & Identity, English & Japanese Translation, Sustainable Design, Fine Art, Photography, Websites for Artisans & Artists...Vancouver Island
Fun things like illustrations, web sites, and brand identity for events, installations, individuals, and organizations. Check out our work above to see some of the folks we've helped in Japan, Canada, and elsewhere.
We have traveled extensively, lived and worked in Japan, Canada, and the United States, and are currently enjoying the natural beauty of Vancouver Island and the artisan community it supports. We can communicate and work in two languages and especially enjoy supporting traditional craft.I have an idea —let’s talk!
Beauty in communication is an expression of who we are.
We enjoy taking on the challenge of conquering the 'net with simple design and clean code.
Let us know what you want to communicate and we will leverage the awesome resources of html5, css3, and WordPress to help you get connected.
Many of our clients request sites that are built to use WordPress as a CMS. This means a site owner can log in and manage or add content from anywhere.
We want you to be able to update your information quickly and easily without having to call us. It’s not that we don’t like you, though…really.
Whether you need a simple information site, a 'blog site, a promotional micro-site, e-commerce, or a comprehensive online presence, we can assist you with details like hosting, domain names, and keeping the search engines happy.
We enjoy adding our style to clothing logos and designs, skateboard deck graphics, and event banners and signage.
Prefer paper to plywood, concrete, or vinyl? We have dozens of published book covers, several hand-illustrated children’s books, and several assorted album covers, posters, flyers, and brochure credits under our belts.
We are often able to work directly with local Vancouver Island printers and screeners to ensure the final product is locally produced and communication seamless from start to finish.
A couple of times a year we can even be found kickin’ it old school with spray cans and rollers, creating hand-painted interior murals, skate park art, or live-art event ambiance.
We enjoy helping artists and artisans share their skills in a beautiful and honest way.
If you are looking for a logo, a color scheme, event consultation, or even a comprehensive branding makeover, we may be just the people you are looking for. While most work is done in house we also maintain a network of creatives we can tap into to find the best match for a unique project vision.
While we like a good mash-up as well as the next person, when it comes to your brand identity, website, business cards, and promotional print materials, we think it best to be a little more coordinated.
We have assisted schools, universities, organizations, individuals, entrepreneurs, and event organizers in the quest for the perfect creative look and feel to compliment their web presence and print material.
We enjoy helping people communicate and understand ideas and truth.
If you are looking for English & Japanese translation, photography, information architecture, social media, instruction, or a unique combination of creative work, we may have the information and skills you require.
Translation of ideas and concepts between languages, media, or dimensions of reality takes more than just the appropriate equipment, it requires an understanding of the context and culture behind the message.
We have assisted students, teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, skateboarders, and even sword smiths endeavouring to communicate and connect across the globe.
