Sound like a lot of work? It is. Let us take it off your hands.
We wanted a unique and contemporary name with a west coast feel. Something that said “Vancouver”. Something that would reflect our love of the ocean and all things marine. Something fresh, in a salty sea air kind of way. And of course, something hinting at the kind of “star quality” service we’d provide our clients.
It took several weeks of brainstorming to deliver a name that felt just right. Then, out of the blue … Thunk! A literal knock on the back door, followed by a “Scraw!” from somewhere above. Upon checking out what had caused the noise we were astounded to see a purple starfish lying on our studio deck. Mid-soar, a seagull had let go of its afternoon snack … and dropped it smack onto an inspiration-craving doorstep.
We invite you to browse through our work and let us be your seagull.
