Since its inception in 1998, Blue Ruby has established a reputable brand known for selling jewellery crafted by artisans around the world. The Company supports designers who donate proceeds to special causes funding jobs for women in third-world countries.
By recently introducing a number of fine jewellery lines, Blue Ruby have created a disconnect between the brand aesthetic and product offering. Compared to the previous young and playful aesthetic, the minimalistic and timeless redesign shifts Blue Ruby’s clients from young girls to sophisticated women looking for high-quality, trendy products.

The main purpose of the app is to act as a communication tool to set up a conversation between a mentor and a mentee. This is a user-friendly app, and is easy to set up a profile - just sync all your information from your existing LinkedIn profile page.

Thinkable Events + Design
Crafting an extraordinary event experience is one of Thinkable’s core values. Thinkable works with local fashion brands in Vancouver to create large-scale, unparalleled corporate events. Events range from company parties, galas, product launches, fashion shows and more. The brand aesthetic is based on art as the inspiration for the planning process of each event. The idea of art is reflected through watercolour imagery displayed in the logo and other print collateral.
Students in post – secondary are often too busy with schoolwork that they prefer ‘quick’ meals such as microwavable foods or instant foods. Because they are so busy they don’t have the time to get the right nutrition in their meals. The objective is to create a platform in which users can refer to for recipe ideas and information, and generate grocery lists that they can take with them on their mobile devices.
Students are always on the go, which generated the idea of a mobile app that they can take anywhere with them – especially at a grocery store when a grocery list on their mobile devices would come in handy. This application not only displays recipes of food but it has the function to generate shopping lists that are compatible with all devices on the cloud.
