Strickland Mateljan Design and Architecture based in Oakville, Ontario creates custom builds with renovation and interiors using in-depth creative process and a keen eye for detail. Led by Alison and Rick, their work applies across residential property, commercial and institutional projects. Jackson Wynne was hired to provide branding, identity, print material and a website.

Identity

A simple update is sometimes all that’s needed. Acronyms can be a challenge to work with, but when handled in a certain way, it can work perfectly. The iconic box treatment emulates an architectural motif, providing structure and space. A clean typeface was selected and customized, paired with the acronym box, working in all material both in both big and small sizing. With purple as the unique brand colour, Jackson Wynne rebranded SMDA’s image with an up to date and relevant mark that is both modern and attractive for prospective customers.

Website

It’s all about the process. The SMDA website has evolved from a one pager to a more in-depth case study format where a grid provides the user an overview of style and quality of work as demonstrated throughout projects. From desktop to mobile – the website is fully responsive and easily updated through a management area to add, edit and remove projects.

Print, Signage & Beyond

Jackson Wynne worked with SMDA on various print pieces including stationery, signage for on-site visibility, and a vehicle wrap. Bringing everything together with an overarching theme with consistent treatments and application.

Results

SMDA’s rebrand has been received well by clients, partners, the community of Oakville and surrounding areas. Jackson Wynne delivered critical assets positioning their services in a highly competitive space. With greater visibility and a refined image, SMDA is well on their way to building continued credibility with an updated brand to match the quality of their work.
