Public Sector

Organizations in the public sector need complete solutions to the unique branding and design challenges as they pertain to creating strong messaging and brand differentiation, and we have delivered on some of the most complex brand initiatives for York Region, City of Toronto, Town of Essex, Agri-Canada Organic Value Chain and the City of Waterloo, to name just a few.

We work in just about every visual communication discipline, and whether the project focuses on shifting brand perceptions, cohesive brand implementation, or consistent brand messaging at the core customer touchpoints (corporate or digital), everything we do is geared to owning the “at-purchase” moment, that split second when an individual decides to join an association or support a non-profit organization.

Our strategic design work has delivered clients with creative, original, and strategic (therefore lasting) design and branding, and our ThinkBlink™ process is founded on a collaborative and inclusive client engagement principle, and it adapts to meet the criteria of even the most complex projects and drives to unite organizations under their core values, turning cities and government led initiatives into brand powerhouses.
