"We worked closely with Revolver Coffee to create a visual identity and brand that would embody the values and spirit of its founders, the Giannakos brothers. We created a system that was flexible enough to be applied to exterior signage, menus, stationery, while also working in harmony with the interior design of their space.”
“Bambudda is a modern Chinese cuisine restaurant located in Vancouver’s Gastown district. Post Projects was commissioned to create the identity for the restaurant. The identity execution took the form of menu design, stationery, website, signage and custom wallpaper. We also worked with Jennilee Marigomen to produce photographs of the restaurant itself.”
About Post Projects
Post Projects is a Vancouver based graphic art and design studio that began with the partnership of Alex Nelson and Beau House. We currently work with a network of local and international specialists on creative projects that include identity & branding, print media, and interactive development.
"It could be better" is an oft-repeated phrase in the Post Projects studio. We understand the commercial value of good creative ideas and see great potential for development in today’s visual landscape. We operate with a flexible, open process and appreciate working with people that are as focused on craftsmanship as we are.
"This poster was commissioned by our friends at Working Format for Intersections, their second poster exhibition at the Platform Gallery.
From Working Format: Hollywood & Vine. Haight & Ashbury. Portage & Main. All great cities have intersections that are recognizable outside of their limits. Often these intersections conjure memories of historical and cultural significance, or are the scene for a unique civic attribute. Intersections will celebrate the unique experiences of seven of Vancouver’s best known intersections, through visual expressions of identity, character and the unique experience of specific places.”
"In late summer 2011, our friends at Working Format invited Post-Projects’ founding partner Alex Nelson to contribute to their poster exhibit entitled By Any Other Name. Each participant was assigned a pseudonym for the city of Vancouver, which was to be used as a key element in their design. From Working Format’s brief:
'Like many other cities, Vancouver’s diverse, multicultural background has given way to the creation of several alternate names. These names — given in admiration, as matter-of-fact descriptors, or in jest — observe the many facets of our local industry, culture and geography. Bestowed by both residents and visitors, they suggest the multitude of histories that collectively define Vancouver.'”

"A limited edition, screen printed poster for a performance by The XX at Place des Arts in Montreal. Part of a submission to an event promotion and merchandise production company. The geometric shapes surrounding the XX in this poster were derived from studies created by Ivan Kliun in 1917.”

"Reynolds and Reyner our philosophy is rooted in the true power of design. We believe it is less about making high quality brand experiences and more about the process at which we engage in, to create a real relationship between our brands and their consumers." — Reynolds and Reyner
Waldo Trommler Paints
The brightest brand of paints
In 2011 Reynolds and Reyner finished two huge projects redesigning international brands of paints. After that they were asked to develop a new visual identity for a small Finnish company which was planning to enter the U.S. market. Without the past, unlike the majority of existing brands in the segment, but believing in the future, the key to access the market was a package design. “We don’t just need - we must! stand out” - this phrase has become the basis at work on a new brand identity.
How to create a brand that stands out? We need to find the design solution that hasn’t been used by any of the competitors. At the same time showing the main features of the company - friendliness, quality and innovation. WTP is not just a manufacturer of paints - it’s an assistant, always ready to help, suggest and defend from the hassles and problems. Repairs with WTP is simple, convenient and fast and this is what in it’s simple design.
No doubt, WTP is the most friendly and remarkable brand of paints on the shelf now. WTP has no corporate colors - it have the corporate identity, common for each design element - from business cards to packaging. Every item is bright and memorable combination of colors and objects that all together form whole the entire brand. The next step is to prove that the product is as high quality as its outer shell. But this is another story.
