Located in the heart of Donair Country—Edmonton, Alberta— Checkmate Restaurant was in the midst of a bloody battle involving knives, skewers, and relentless competition, when they commissioned me to rejuvenate their brand presence. Their only request: make us stand out.

Challenge, accepted.

Great package and production value—a heck of a deal.
