Logo Design, Branding & Digital Marketing for small to medium size businesses
Hi, I'm Denny and I'm a Creative Director from Toronto, with close to 20 years of experience in helping small to medium size businesses stand out in a crowded marketplace and connect with their ideal customers through exceptional branding and digital & social media marketing.
BRANDING FOR MARRIOTT HOTEL CHAIN
Marriott's Hotel Vie in Vaughan, prides itself on offering guests a boutique experience and outstanding services. Inspired by French Luxury & Modernity, we came up with the name, logo design, and branding for this new and unique hotel.
BRANDING FOR FASHION BOUTIQUE
Branding we created for Mason Haven - a Toronto creative fashion entrepreneur who designs haute couture apparel & gear that encourages people to be the best version of themselves.
BRANDING FOR LUXURY HIGH-RISE CONDOS
Branding for a new downtown Toronto condo development that targets highly successful young professional women, who are social media savvy and enjoy the convenience of living, and working Downtown Toronto.
BRANDING FOR IT SOLUTIONS FIRM
Branding for a Information Technology firm based in the Middle East, that specializes in providing Islamic banking solutions to the various banks and financial institutions in the area.
BRANDING FOR CAMPUS STUDENT FOOD SERVICES
Branding for NexDine's Artisan food-service solution that caters to independent school cafeterias, that are seeking a commitment to health and wellness.
BRANDING FOR FAST FOOD CHAIN
Smoke's Poutiernie is wild & wacky fast food chain from Canada, that needed to target a young demographic who loved the fun of eating poutine and doing things that are out of the norm. They wanted to create a brand that was big, bold, and bodacious, and would have a cult-like following, while being distinctly Canadian.
MOBILE BANKING UX DESIGN
Here I've re-imagined how TD could amp up their mobile banking experience, by adopting a very clean & simplified design.
You'll notice that the circular UI design & animation is something that I kept consistent through out - right from the moment you input your thumbprint. A thumbprint is unique to the user, just like every bank account and banking need is unique to the user. You need to design from an end-user perspective, and that means understanding the value of placing people first.
BRANDING FOR PREMIUM CARPET RETAILER
Kingsway Carpets & Blinds needed our help to re-brand and re-position themselves as a premium supplier that people can trust for top quality goods and service.
Inspired by Woodlands style aboriginal art, we created a new brand platform for the Chi-Cheemaun ferry, as well as a new visual language of illustrations and graphics. We integrated the campaign across multiple platforms, from mobile apps to billboards to the ship experience. There were 130 unique elements created for the brand.
MOBILE APP PASSION PROJECT
CountDracu1, is an early-learning kid's app I created for the App Store. This was a passion project of mine, where I came up with the concept & story-line, illustrated & animated the characters, did the voice-over, as well as programmed the app. It revolves around a young vampire from Toronto, and his gang of multi-cultural friends.
Prior to joining the business of Advertising, I used to work as a Visual Effects Artist & 3D Animator on movies such as "Resident Evil", "Dawn of the Dead", and "Cube Zero". I'm also a professionally trained voice-actor, and have taught as a Graphic Design professor at Humber College.
Currently I live in Toronto with my charming wife, son and daughter. I'm the creative director & co-founder of Rayvn, a multi-disciplinary design consultancy that doesbrand strategy, branding, digital UX & UI, as well interior design & architectural 3D pre-vizualization.
I love Big Ideas and the ability to express them through stories and design. I also enjoy the fast-paced ever-changing digital environment, and my critical thinking skills lend themselves well to the work. I'm successful because I adhere to this simple notion: that the one staple that all disciplines thrive on is concept, pure and simple.
