In the bustling neighborhood of Sunset Beach in Vancouver’s West End, a fresh culinary destination has emerged that perfectly captures the essence of its locale while standing distinct amongst its competitors. 
SUNSET STAND, a beachside burger joint, was conceived under the vibrant "Imagine West End Waterfront" initiative, blending local charm with a sprinkle of adventure. This case study explores how a targeted rebranding effort has transformed SUNSET STAND into a beacon of local culture and gastronomy, appealing to both residents and tourists alike.
The Challenge
The challenge was to differentiate SUNSET STAND in a competitive landscape of local eateries at Sunset Beach. The goal was to create an identity that reflects the vibrancy and unique charm of the neighborhood, moving beyond just the concept of the sunset to embody the area's dynamic atmosphere.
The Solution
The breakthrough came with the adoption of a youthful and energetic color palette coupled with playful beach-themed doodles that vividly captured the lively beachfront atmosphere. This visual strategy was designed to evoke a sense of joy and nostalgia, appealing directly to a demographic that cherishes vibrant beach experiences. The design elements chosen were not just aesthetically pleasing but also functionally expressive of the beach life that defines the area. Through these thoughtful design choices, SUNSET STAND now proudly showcases a bold and lively identity, making it an irresistible stop for those eager to experience the true flavor and spirit of Vancouver's beach life.
