More calls. More inquiries. More bookings. Bigger sales.
Velocity puts your slow days behind you.
You’re familiar with us already — for over 14 years you’ve seen our branding and marketing work on the web, on buses, on buildings, heard it on the radio, and mentioned it to friends. We use innovative ideas and powerful design to get businesses working harder than ever before.
From established corporate institutions to up-and-coming entrepreneurs, professionals hire us to help solve their business problems and improve sales.
We do this by making a clear, unbiased examination of an organization’s strengths and weaknesses, and using the insights we gather to write a brand and marketing strategy. Those ideas are combined with clever design, which adds up to a powerful brand.
And a strong brand means strong sales.
It’s hard work building a business, but it’s even more work running a business that’s enjoying unprecedented growth. We’re ready when you are.
Meyer felt that lake logos were, for the most part, poorly done. So each day, she gives a new lake in Minnesota a miniature makeover — a quick little rebrand to get people thinking.
We love the concept, and decided to take a similar approach as we wrapped-up our Wallpaper of the Week project. After considerable discussion, we realized how many great neighbourhoods in Winnipeg lack any distinct visual identity. So we’re devoting the next year to branding and rebranding the neighbourhoods of the city we love.
Rebranding One Great City
VELOCITYWG is our new, weekly design project: simple exercises in unfettered creativity with a common theme that’s near and dear to our hearts: celebrating the streets, suburbs, and cityscape of Manitoba’s capital.
Our first entry, by Velocity Creative Director Karla Burr, premieres Monday.
Have a great weekend! -J
A Second Chance at Love — Randy Frykas’ “White Noise”
“The film focuses on Winnipeg’s intricate relationship with professional hockey, how it influences, defines and continues to impact its citizens on an emotional, economic and, often, a very personal level. Using a variety of interviews from fans, writers, critics, players and a tapestry of pro hockey enthusiasts White Noise explores Winnipeg’s fifteen year fascination with the ghost of a professional hockey team, and the team’s unbelievable, inspiring return.”
White Noise premieres with a free public screening at 8 p.m. October 1 on the 35 ft. Creswin Screen at 201 Portage (Portage and Main), and is also available on MTS Winnipeg On Demand, starting Oct. 2.
Jeff Newman is a longstanding client of ours (Velocity designed the Nüman Films site), and we wish him the very best of luck with what’s sure to be a HUGE hit!
And so with Wallpaper of the Week #42, we’ve decided* to end our year-long experiment in off-the-cuff and on-the-fly design. However…
We will continue to provide you with outstanding quality digital content at the same great price (free) that we always have. Starting next week, Velocity is plunging full-speed into a new and interesting project, directly connected to the city we love.
No, not Lethbridge (although it is a very fine city). We mean Winnipeg.
During his career, Dan founded dozens of restaurants and cafeterias, significantly bolstered tourism in Winnipeg through his cruise ships and double-decker bus tours, and always found time to extoll the virtues of our city. Dan befriended artists like Leo Mol, and held one of the largest private art collections in Western Canada at one point, as well as a collection of antique tractors and a 1,000 acres of Manitoba farmland.
Although extraordinarily successful in business, Dan never lost touch with the average man, and held a special place in his heart for animals of every shape and size. He took in dozens of stray dogs and cats over the years, and in his retirement, founded the Pine Ridge Wildlife & Environment Foundation, and devoted most of his time and energy to the care of animals — from abused and neglected dogs and cats to wounded deer and birds. The Sanctuary provides shelter and food to thousands of animals from across Southern Manitoba.
Velocity was fortunate enough to develop the Pine Ridge website, and experience Dan’s caring nature firsthand. Our community has lost one of its most vocal and energetic proponents, but the Foundation which he began will live on.
We extend our deepest sympathies to the Ritchie family.
