Pound & Grain

Pound & Grain is a digital agency building hardworking, results-driven, creative campaigns, apps, and digital experiences since 2010. We’re obsessed with digital. That means creating campaigns, brands, websites, and products that achieve business objectives and make people happy.

Visit the studio and meet some of our team, learn where our name come from, and how we make the sausage, digitally of course. Check out some of our latest work for clients like Arc’teryx, Genesis Robotics, Kyo, SAP, Weight Watchers, CFL, and TELUS. No questions too silly or too sensitive!


Deductive, decisive, pragmatic, didactic, methodical, empirical, clear-eyed,
fresh-faced, eyebrow-furrowing, poetic, alchemic, chimeric, grenade-throwing, mind-blowing, rule-breaking, breathtaking, kick-at-sacred-cows, maybe-not-what-you-expected-but-for-sure-what-you-need brand design.


Twice is a brand consultancy.

We help organizations with multiple stakeholders navigate big brand challenges. Organizations like Saputo, Dairy Farmers of Canada, Rocky Mountaineer, BCIT and BCLC.

We build better brands through dialogue.

If this sounds interesting, then stop by. We’d love to meet you.

Session B: 6:00pm - 7:30pm


Burnkit is a design agency. Whether we’re creating brand identities, websites, packaging, print, ad campaigns or touchscreen displays, we are driven by ideas, inspired by technology, and passionate about quality design. In every project, it is our goal to help change how brands communicate with their clients and customers in a positive and personal way.

Since our inception in 2000, our studio has been an important part of the Burnkit culture and identity. Now located at 784 Powell street, it occupies a formerly non-descript warehouse that was designed in collaboration with Battersby Howat Architects and rebuilt from the ground up. We are excited to share this space with you, and by extension, our philosophy and approach to our work.

Dossier Creative

Located in Vancouver’s unique Railtown District, Dossier is a design business that creates iconic brands. With over 30 years of experience, we partner with forward-thinking companies to bring visions from conception to reality.

Our studio comprises an integrated team of design and business thinkers who are passionate about making meaningful change. We collaborate with local entrepreneurs on Design Ventures and mentor design/business interns in our Railyard Lab Railyard Lab Current projects range from numerous brand creations for wine and food companies and brand restarts for clients in financial services, health and wellness, resort, apparel, gift and home/hardware products.

We also have spectacular views of Vancouver’s shipyards and the North Shore mountains!


Will is the most powerful quality we possess. Will does big things like put people on the moon. And little things like make you order salad instead of fries. Will is the difference between like it and love it. The distance between quitting time and the finish line. Will is the two hands that push firmly on the back of anyone who ever did the thing they needed to do but didn’t really have to.

More studios to be confirmed soon!
