Southlands Grange Centre

What We Did:
  • — Brand Strategy
  • — Naming
  • — Web
  • — Wayfinding

Southlands Grange Centre for Farming & Food celebrates farming through events and programs and promotes a food culture that values taste, tradition, sustainability and the land itself. Located in the new community of Southlands, Tsawwassen Southlands Grange was created to integrate the surrounding farmlands into the community.

"If we can create a place where farming and food could energize a neighborhood then, in a modern sense, we can re-establish something we lost." - Sean Hodgins

Through multiple phases we created a brand experience that laid bare what Grange was all about and developed a strategy to communicate what it meant for the community as a whole.

Phase i: Discovery

The lands of Southlands have been farmed for generations. Understanding the history of the lands was essential to understanding how Southlands Grange came to be.

Architecture: ZGF Architects

Phase ii: Ideation

We proposed several naming strategies and concepts. With a name settled on, we began exploring the many facets of the organization and experimented with ways to communicate each one.

Phase iii: Clarify

Bringing clarity to the ideas meant ensuring that the message was not just clear but accurate from an ecological and agricultural perspective.
