AREAS OF EXPERTISE

CREATIVE & ORIGINAL THINKING

It all starts with a great idea. A spark. That “Aha”  moment. That millisecond when left and right brain connect in perfect unison, when creativity and practicality are one and the same. When we reach that place we seem to connect with something far greater than ourselves. As if we’re reaching into the consciousness of The Universe itself. We live for that moment!

ART DIRECTION & GRAPHIC DESIGN

Some say that in business, image is everything.  We think it’s much more than that. In today’s over-saturated market even the very best products can get lost without effective branding, packaging design and POS display. Our job is to get your brand and product noticed in an elegant way that doesn’t scream, LOOK AT ME. Good design is subtle and draws people in without having to resort to yelling.

INTERACTIVE WEBSITES

We design, code, host and maintain state of the art, handcrafted websites, micro-sites, blogs, landing pages and apps for that display consistently on computers, laptops, tablets and mobile platforms – most call this responsive design and programming, we call it common sense. We code our websites to comply with W3C standards, and with impaired accessibility in mind.

EMAIL BLAST DESIGN & PROGRAMMING

Email marketing design & programming presents special challenges as each email client (both online and standalone), interpret HTML code slightly differently making consistency a nightmare. Modern CSS3/HTML5 coding standards are not supported, and one has to rely on archaic methods like tables. That’s why we’re experts at it, we’re old-school!

WHITE-HAT SEO (SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION)

As of 2013, there are an estimated 1,000,000,000 websites on the internet, and growing daily. If your business isn’t on the first three pages of a Google search with your chosen keywords, it might as well be non-existent. With the recent changes made to Google’s search algorithms, bad SEO can be much worse for your rankings than no SEO at all. Be very wary  of link farms and quick SEO fixes.

INTERACTIVE INFORMATION STATIONS / KIOSKS

Inform, educate, entertain and captivate! Information stations, kiosks and digital displays are used by stores, banks, government offices, museums, galleries and other organizations that need to present large amounts of data and information in a creative and entertaining way to their guests and employees without overwhelming them, by displaying only the specific information that interests them.

SOCIAL MEDIA - FACEBOOK, TWITTER, GOOGLE+

Extend your reach even further with social media! These days, social media is almost synonymous with SEO, making it an extremely effective and cost efficient marketing and advertising tool. There’s simply no better advertising than word of mouth from a trusted and knowledgeable source, be it industry expert or friend.

LEGGO MYDAIGOIDENTITY / BRANDING / LAUNCH

 

What’s MyDaigo? It’s an electronic device that helps you get more of that found it feeling.   You stick the small transmitter on any item you don’t want to lose and you keep the transmitter on your person. The receiver alerts you when that item’s out of range. Sound good? You bet! Great idea. Patents were applied for, engineers and electronics experts were hired, and prototypes were made just in time for CES Las Vegas 2013 – the biggest electronics trade show in the world. But aren’t we missing something? What about a logo, business card, website, information pamphlets, trade show display backdrops, press kit folders, electronic press release kit (e-press)…and most importantly a story that quickly and simply illustrates what the device is, and what it does.

No easy task you might say. How about doing all that in just three weeks? No problem, challenge accepted!  We love a good Canadian startup company founded on a big dream and hard work, and we worked day and night to make it all happen while coordinating with printers in Toronto and Los Angeles, making sure all loose ends were tied up and everything looked great for the big reveal.

A product supported by professional branding stands a much better chance of being taken seriously, and more importantly, noticed  at the biggest electronics trade show in the world with several thousand exhibitors all vying for attention from press and public alike.

Mission accomplished! MyDaigo was not only noticed, but noticed by the right people. The team came back to Canada with offers of funding from investors who would help with mass production and distribution of the device. Having put their blood sweat and tears into this invention, the MyDaigo boys decided to hold off on giving some their company equity away to investors and raise the money themselves instead. HA! Nice move, that takes guts, and we like that.

QUENCH teamed up with FamousFolks.ca and delivered the online/website portion of a marketing campaign including videos, and a full social media strategy and email blasts to get MyDaigo Kickstarter funding to raise enough capitol for production, regulatory testing to get this thing in stores already. If you like a good Canadian business story, head over to Kickstarter and help these Cape Breton boys bring their invention to the world.

We’re behind Jimmy & the MyDaigo team and are pulling for them. Go get ’em guys!

GOOOOALINSIDE SOCCER MAGAZINE - COMPLETE GRAPHIC DESIGN & LAYOUT FROM FRONT TO BACK COVER
Inside Soccer Magazine is Canada’s leading national soccer publication. When they were looking to spruce up the design of the overall look of the magazine they turned to QUENCH Design & Communications. We designed the last 8 issues from cover to cover slowly morphing their look and feel into something more contemporary that will grab reader attention, being careful not to move too fast so current readers weren’t alienated. What was needed was a gentle and subtle morph towards modern contemporary layout and design.

That metamorphosis is still occurring and unfolding with every issue as the magazine reaches forward towards its creative and business objectives – which are irrevocably linked.

The team at Inside Soccer is pleased as punch and their readers are responding positively, further solidifying Inside Soccer Magazine’s position as the leading Canadian soccer publication, and growing every day.

LASER CREATIVEGREAT WEBSITE + ORGANIC SEO = BIG SUCCE$$

 

Laser Creative was a fledgeling start-up with some great ideas and products but no customers. They needed a way to get their innovative and unique products in front of some eyeballs. QUENCH Design & Communications branded and positioned the company as the leader in laser cutting for creative applications.

We launched a killer website to showcase their custom made wares and embarked on an SEO campaign that would get them found by international clients. Having worked on the internet since the days of gif animations and static bulletin boards, we know a thing or two about how to go about Search Engine Optimization – we know what works, and why.

Next we created profiles on major social media websites like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter – the big 3. We connected with the right forums on Facebook and quickly got Laser Creative’s friends list to over 2500 qualified people who would get the word out about them to their networks in turn.

Through organic link building, search engine friendly content, tablet and mobile device optimization, Laser Creative now consistently sits on the front page of Google searches for their chosen keywords and is enjoying thriving international sales to Australia, Europe, Asia, South America, and all over North America.

All this was accomplished within one year!  While the great majority of businesses fold within the first three years, Laser Creative is enjoying great website traffic and global success just 12 short months later. 99% of their new business is directly through their website and their revenues have doubled in the last two quarters.
