OUR PROCESS

ANNA BOHDANOWICZ

Founder & Project Manager

 

I like to think BIG. With over 13 years of international experience in growing brands, I work with clients to position their company to attract a targeted market. My job is to collaborate with my specialists and lead our team to deliver projects that not only look great, but most importantly, help our clients excel. In simpler terms, I dress companies up for success. 

Born to Polish Architects in Kuwait who later immigrated to Canada, I grew up exposed to large scale creativity in spatial design. I spent my formative years travelling between the Middle East, Europe, and Canada, experiencing and engaging with many cultures before moving to Montreal to complete my Bachelors of Commerce in International Business. Ultimately, it is this combination of design and business strategy that has formed who I am.

For 8 years, I lead business development, marketing, and communication teams in both small and large companies in Real Estate Development, Restaurants, Healthcare, and Oil & Gas industries overseas. I worked in international markets and easily see business growth opportunities. I help our clients see them too. I have also held workshops and have chaired international conferences and have strong business connections in Canada, USA, Europe, the Middles East, and India.

Upon moving to Edmonton Alberta in 2013, I incorporated besomething to merge the gap between design and business strategy and bring something different to Edmonton. I feel very privileged to have already worked with many incredibly smart and talented inventors, business owners and leaders in Canada. Since 2013 we have worked on over 30 branding projects, and we finished 3 commercial interior projects. Through clients like Prairie Noodle Shop, Hoang Long restaurant, and Sherbrooke Liquor Store, I am fortunate to take brand development to the next level by creating unforgettable themed environments and unmatched customer experiences. 

 

It is my personal goal to help our local businesses grow in the global arena. Canadian companies are underrepresented and often undervalued in global markets, yet we have a lot to be proud of. It's time to be seen and be heard

Monika Plachecka
Creative Director

MONIKA PLACHECKA

Creative Director

As Creative Director, I design visual identities for companies and all the branding & marketing materials that our clients need. I have over 20 years of experience in leading design teams in Marketing departments of successful international companies. My Master of Arts in Image &  Communication from the University of London, England, taught me how to use creative design as a tool to capture and retain the attention of a target audience.  I am experienced at adapting brands to new markets and launching products in different settings and with varying budgets.

I was born in Poland and shortly after my parents’ work moved us to Kuwait. My father’s passion for travel and photography exposed me to many adventures and an appreciation for the arts. My own love for photography continuously inspires my design work.

I earned my degrees in London and have experience in launching and managing brands in Europe, the Middle East and North America. Setting the right corporate image and communicating visually with a target market is my forte.

Since 2006, Anna and I have worked on mastering how to successfully merge business strategy with design. We produce visual solutions to communication needs using a mix of artistic skills, commercial awareness and high level creativity. We work closely together to ensure that the brands we build help our clients do better.

MARGARET KRAWECKA

Spacial Design Director

With over 15 years of professional experience, I bring an interdisciplinary approach to spatial design, drawing on my experience in architecture, interior design, multimedia installation art and performance design. 

 

I studied architecture at the University of Toronto and after years of working internationally on various types of projects in architecture firms, I started my own collaborative multidisciplinary design practice. I also hold a Master of Arts in Scenography from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (UK) and my experience in design for environmental and site-specific theatre in Europe has shaped my passion for the discovery of space through sensory perception and movement of the body.

 

I am interested in the emotional, psychological, and narrative potential of branded space, creating stimulating immersive environments that combine practical design solutions with a playful element of theatricality. I am also a part-time sessional instructor at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture and the University of Toronto Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design.
