Vancouver Writers Fest

Vancouver Writers Fest, abortion 2015

Hangar 18 not only refreshed and re-branded the Vancouver International Writers Festival in 2012,
we also developed a whole new simplified name and logo system. For the upcoming 2015 event,
we created an engaging photographic theme based on the trend of “weird fiction” that will be a predominant feature of this year’s festival. The theme was applied to outdoor, print and digital media. This is our most recent work as the dynamic, 6 person studio we are today. We are lucky to work
with a wonderful client that is will to push the boundaries.

Teck Resources

Teck Annual Report, 2011

For the Teck Resources 2011 Annual Report, Hangar 18 created the theme “Take a closer look” as a way of communicating the key message of inviting stakeholders to engage by paying attention to the details, while not losing sight of the bigger picture.

Richmond Centre

Re-Birth of Retail, 2010

In 2010, when Richmond Centre was expanding and undergoing major renovations, Hangar 18, in partnership with our client, developed a “Re-birth of Retail” theme for the centre. It was based on the feel of blueprints and the lifecycle transformation of a pupae into a beautiful butterfly, and reflected the transformation and changes happening at the Centre. The applications included hoarding, posters and various smaller pieces of collateral.


Canine One One, 2006

In 2006, the BCSPCA approached us to create materials for a fundraising event to help prevent cruelty to animals. We created a powerful, visually appealing concept that helped make the event a big sucess, raising a substantial amount of money for the cause. The materials included a poster, invitation and t-shirt design. We are animal lovers at Hangar 18, and this project was close to our hearts.

Vancouver International Airport Authority

YVR Re-Brand, 2006

In 2006, Hangar 18 (a 22 person studio at the time) and the Vancouver Airport Authority undertook a brand review with the goal of enhancing public perceptions of YVR. The team at Hangar 18 worked closely with the Airport Authority to assess the competitive environment and fully understand the needs of stakeholders. The consensus was that the brand needed to be elevated from its dated, governmental look, to the modern, progressive and entrepreneurial airport it was becoming. The information gained through the brand review was used to develop an entirely new brand identity, including a new positioning line and a new logo. Key elements of the new logo include a West Coast (land, sea and sky) colour palette, an arc element that evokes flight, and a succinct, memorable new tagline –“Beyond, Every Day”– to describe YVR’s approach to its business.
The new identity has now been successfully applied in all media – from airport signage and uniforms, to vehicles and all printed and electronic media. For the next six years, Hangar 18 designed and produced many corporate and consumer publications for YVR, including annual reports, sustainability reports, media guides and various brochures.
