When a company wants to improve their position against the competition, they go to Garret Phenix at Oneaftereight Design Studio. Garret provides creative graphic design services, plus marketing direction, to help clients increase their brand exposure, and attract more clients.

Specializing in corporate branding, from concept to implementation, Oneaftereight’s packages can include overall brand look, plus logo, business card, and rack card. Publications and newsletters can also be produced, as well as support for events, tradeshows, and any print or digital media requirements. If it’s visual, Garret can create it.

Very service oriented, Garret doesn’t just produce designs, he takes the time to collaborate with his clients. Often people come to Oneaftereight with specific design ideas, some good, some not so good. Garret will explain why certain design elements work better than others, and which ones will work best for that client’s brand project.

Client’s goals are key to graphic design, as well as how they fit into their marketing strategy. Oneaftereight helps them focus on their messaging, so they are using their dollars wisely, and not just throwing random ideas out into the market.

Oneaftereight creates a strategic action plan for each client, so they can roll out branding elements at a manageable pace.

Clients receive the design they need, and impactful marketing tools that are more affordable over the long term.

Garret experienced considerable success in Alberta where he supported companies in the health care, oil and gas, and government sectors. Since he and his wife moved to Nanaimo, almost four years ago, he has contributed design support for local clients like Kw’umut Lelum Child and Family Services, and Reed Family Wellness.

Garret is an Ambassador with the Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce, and invites Members to contact him for a free consultation. info@oneaftereight.com 250-668-9539

Highlights of Proposed Food Truck Licencing Process

Current Situation
Food trucks and food trailers are currently permitted to operate either on private property (in zones that permit Restaurant) or in select City parks with a Park Licence Use Agreement. They are not permitted to operate on City streets.

The Opportunity
Food trucks present an opportunity to enliven public spaces, diversify dining experiences and food options available in the City, and enhance Nanaimo’s food culture.

The City aims to establish a Food Truck Licence to:
– Increase the available locations for food trucks by establishing on-street locations
– Streamline the process so that only one permit is needed to operate in any location type
– Provide flexibility to location options so vendors have a greater opportunity for success

The Approach
Who: Food trucks & food trailers (not food carts)
What: Food Truck Licence – valid up to 1 year
When: Year Round
Where: Specified on-street, City park, and City parking lot locations.
