26 Projects

is a small, passionate, content-driven studio with a keen and loving eye for design, creative editorial and thoughtful strategy.

We create evocative, impactful content for brands that resonate with their audiences – and help to communicate their narrative and authentic, truly unique presence, within an ever-evolving, highly connected world.

We find the happy medium between commercial and creative objectives, and are always interested in attracting fantastic people whose interests are to build positive networks within our community and abroad. That lovely desire to innovate is what gets us out of bed each and every morning.

 

On Turning + Transformation

The meditative motion of turning as a way to shape a medium is expressed in the potter’s wheel and in the woodworker’s lathe. Here, the result is captured in light and stillness.

Wood pieces – designed and created by Hare and Hare. 

Ceramics – turned, sculpted and fired by Leanne Muir. 

They form two integral parts of the collective called Root Cellar  based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – dedicated to the cultivation of quality goods and the preservation of hand craft.

Photography and styling, Pauline Boldt

In Touch with The Superior Labor

The Superior Labor flagship brand has its roots in Okayama Japan. Husband and wife team Makoto and Yoshimi guide a team of artisans and designers in ethical production of beautiful utilitarian lifestyle products that are carefully stitched by hand. They are a brand dedicated to absolute craftsmanship and tactility. Their workshop called ‘Nap Village’ consists of the owners home, an old school house where their factory is located, and a lovely restaurant. Each product is designed to promote and enhance the characteristics of the raw materials – primarily fine leather and canvas. 
 
This past spring, our Creative Director Pauline Boldt was fortunate to connect with the owners of The Superior Labor in Los Angeles – a meeting graciously organized by longstanding friends of 26 Projects and owners of Baum Kuchen – a lifestyle studio and shop located in the heart of Glassell Park, where the the meeting was held. 
 
It was a profoundly inspiring afternoon spent in the company of creative, like-minded individuals – those who share a love and appreciation for beautiful, consciously crafted and designed utility products that, in essence, can be considered complete works of art. To witness hands at work while engaged in conversation / sharing dreams and ideas made for a truly unforgettable experience.

Jessica Kos-Whicher

Winnipeg born soprano, Jessica Kos-Whicher approached us to help transition her private teaching practice into a comprehensive performing arts studio. Jessica’s dedication to nurturing her own voice through performance and the importance she has placed on music education has naturally led her down the path of teaching. Her ability to connect, engage, and inspire confidence in students at every stage of their development has brought her recognition within the music community and beyond. We developed the studio’s brand identity with her bubbly, positive energy at the forefront – utilizing her name as the studio title: J.Kos Whicher Vocal and Performing Arts Studio. We created a website to reflect Jessica’s love of colour and vibrancy and her ethos of encouraging a culture of performance excellence, and a true freedom to express.

De Luca’s

De Luca’s is a beloved Winnipeg business, considered and embraced as a family foremost, and not strictly as a brand name. Family, in many ways, exceeds the brand. What De Luca’s has always offered, is an invitation into a family, into a home, and into a world of knowledge about food and the beauty of preparing a meal for and with others. The atmosphere at the De Luca’s Market is relaxed, familial, timeless, comfortable, product-focused, diverse and incredibly well-curated. We have been engaged–as a starting point–to bring a refreshed look to the brand through new typography, digital presence with an updated website, photography, and fun, yet sophisticated holiday print material. More to come!
