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.
New Team Moo-mber
We’re so excited to be working with one of our newest clients, the nutritional team over at the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba. Not just because we (I) love cheese more than the average person, but they are a great bunch, doing some important work in education.
Today we received a package which reinforces why we know this is going to be a great partnership. Meet Daisy, the dairy cow.
She’s adorable, and we’ve already put her to work.
September is Getting Spooky…
Velocity was recently contracted by an anonymous client to produce some rather peculiar signage…
It seems that huge, wooden crates will soon be placed around Assiniboine Park Zoo, and Safeway stores around the city. It’s a bit of a mystery, but we think it must be connected in some way to Safeway Boo at the Zoo coming up in October…
Here are the signs… what do you think?
Could the Zoo actually be bringing in LIVE MONSTERS for BOO?
Safeway Boo at the Zoo starts October 20…
WotW #42 – Apopsiclypse Now
The sticky, sweet, tangerine horror…
Wallpaper of the Week for Friday, September 2, “Apopsiclypse Now” by designer Lee Froese, officially ends our Popsicle theme. And I mean, really ends our Popsicle theme. It’s like Armageddon for fruity frozen treats, except Bruce Willis has drown in a sea of artificially flavoured orange sugar-water. Grim!
And on that note — enjoy the Looooong Weekend, folks! -JB
WOTW #41 – Grapefruit Popsicle Supernova
Wallpaper of the Week for August 26, Grapefruit Popsicle Supernova, by Velocity’s graphic design intern Mercy-Anne Guevarra. A couple of weeks ago, senior designer Colette Boisvert kicked-off the August popsicle theme, and it’s been going pretty strong since then.
Grapefruit Popsicle Supernova is a stunning example of Lowbrow Pop Surrealism. An impossibly gigantic, planet-sized popsicle floats dripping in space, as the Klingon moon Praxis explodes behind it. In a decidedly postmodern twist, the image is “branded” with the Velocity logo. Clever.
*Look carefully for the cloaked ship barely visible behind the popsicle stick.
WOTW #40 – Boieyrevert Landcape I
REMIX! Wallpaper of the Week for August 19, Boieyrevert LandcapeI by Velocity Copywriter Jay Booth (yours truly), is a dramatic reinterpretation of last week’s inspiring WotW by Colette Boisvert. I loved Colette’s design, and we discussed the idea of a popsicle forest in the style of Canadian artist Ivan Eyre.
For purposes of full disclosure, I am not a licensed graphic designer. At best, I might be considered a hobbyist. Or possibly, a giant hobbit. Regardless, we try to foster a collaborative and creative environment around here, and the other (fully licensed and accredited) designers have been hinting that I should try my hand at a Wallpaper. So here it is. The big Four-O.
