Emily Carr University’s Chancellor Installation Ceremony was a multi-component visual identity and marketing project. The ceremony formally recognized the institution’s university designation and the appointment of its founding chancellor.

At the core of the marketing program was an identity mark, which spoke to the excitement around the milestone event. The result was a unified design solution that provided a distinctive, memorable campaign and event.


Dennis was able to interpret our requirements and articulate them into a well defined project plan. He was also able to suggest ways in which we might expand upon our original goals and achieve objectives while maintaining our budget. The combination of exceptional design capabilities, marketing skills, project management and adherence to timelines made for a positive working experience and an exceptional product. Professionalism, attention to detail, project management skills and overall creativity ensured that the final product was of exceptional quality that exceeded our expectations.
