New Media | Photography | Graphic Design | Web | Social Networking
Design is a means toward accomplishing the end goals of serving markets and generating profits. Furthermore, design is an element in social responsibility. Good design allows “form to complement performance.” The way things look is not irrelevant to the way things work: how they work is how they should look. -Thomas F. Schutte
Hello & welcome. We are a group of talented & experienced designers and photographers based in Vancouver / British Columbia. Established in 2012, we are committed to using our skills, expertise and passion towards pushing your business to the next level.
Design graphics for your business (print & web). Build you a website. Integrate social media accounts into your website. Photograph your products, your business, your team, heck we even photograph your wedding if you are up for a set of artistic wedding photographs! In a nutshell, we do everything visual, just name it.
Our job is to help you increase your online presence and the driving force behind everything we do (apart from coffee) is to produce brilliantly effective and beautiful websites that help you do just that. We work closely with you the whole way through the process to ensure that the work we deliver makes a great impression where it really counts.
Here are some technical key points in our services:
This is aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (desktop computers to mobile phones).
This essentially means that the images on your website will look sharp on Retina Display devices, instead of blurry due to the higher pixel ratio of the devices’s display. Basically more awesome looking images.
Yes we are professional licensed photographers. We don't just snap the photos for you with our iPhones. We believe in high quality images. We take our time to enhance your photos to get you the best results. Pixel by pixel.
This will not only benefit your company’s marketing and branding efforts, but it can also help your Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine, such as Google.
A dedicated staff makes a true difference in over all quality when it comes to the final product.

Founder | Project Manager

Photographer | Marketer
Sarah combines her background as an marketing graduate with her photography, creating modern, lifestyle portraits of people, landscapes and objects. Her clients include ad agencies, magazines, publishing companies and non-profit organizations. She is Vancouver born and one of the key members at MinimalBold.
There's an obvious marketing component to doing something digitally where you're reaching out to new readers that you can't do in the existing print marketplace, or that it's difficult to do in the existing print marketplace. And this is where our team come in.
We believe that quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.
"The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail." -Charles R. Swindoll
It's really easy to get involved in too many projects at one time and suddenly start having all the details of those projects falling through the cracks. This is why we dedicate enough time to each project to have it perfectly done for you.
“How often do you find yourself saying, “In a minute”, “I’ll get to it” or “Tomorrow’s good enough” and every other possible excuse in the book? Well these do not apply to us! You can rest assured your project will be taken care of fairly quickly. From start to finish we keep the communication going between you and our team.
Being passionate about our job is the biggest trophy that we have achieved to date, and we are really proud of it.
As a wise man once said: "To become a master at any skill, it takes the total effort of your heart, mind, and soul working together in tandem."
"I can't thank you and your team enough, right from my first phone call to yourself, I felt reassured I was with the right team. Thanks for your amazing photos, this has been so all the way through, I have appreciated your patience, support and advice. I will certainly be recommending you to my friends when they get round to doing their own websites."
