Esther Batycki is a graphic designer in her early 20's currently living in Vancouver, British Columbia where she attended Kwantlen University from 2008 to 2012 and recieved a Bachelor of Design, Graphic Design for Marketing. Before going to Kwantlen to get her degree, she completed a certificate program at BCIT, where she studied New Media and Web Development.
In her spare time, she wishes she had more money to do more interesting things during her spare time. Instead she enjoys stalking young people who were born after 1995 and convinces them that she invented the internet thus amassing a cult that would claim her as the Queen of the Interweb. When she eventually gets frustrated with their lack of attention span, she searches for the worst websites in the world and offers an "Extreme Homepage Makeover" to their respective business owners.

A project I completed in the summer of 2010 with a classmate Stephanie Talbot. Christopher Jodoin was a friend of hers that had launched his own event design company in November 2009 and wanted a more professional website to further promote his success.
For this case, Stephanie was in charge of esthetic design and I designed the backend using the Joomla content management system, allowing Chris to be able to update himself if he wished.
Amanda is a freelance journalist from Vancouver B.C. with a bachelors degree in journalism with a concentration in political science from Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Currently, she is an M.A. candidate at Simon Fraser University with research interests in public broadcasting and Canadian culture. Throughout her career she has written for various publications around the Lower Mainland including 24 Hours Vancouver and The Surrey Now.
Amanda approached me when she decided it was time to update her website in order to allow herself to post articles online, while also promoting her published articles. We decided a Wordpress blog would work best, however we tried to look for a template that looked less like a blog and almost like a journal or newspaper. We found the Magazine Basic theme by bavotasan to work best for her, and then tweaked the look and functionality to her liking.
Our mission? To fix this horrible looking art site using ONLY CSS. We weren't allowed to touch the html whatsoever (sometimes that's your only option).
A beverage concept I made for a class assignment, so it's made up. You can't buy one, sorry :(
The couple that started the Ovadohil winery 40 years ago have been together 50 years and believe you should feel confident and sexy at any age.
At an affordable price, the label stands out making it easy to make a quick decision in store, drinking this wine will make you want to celebrate life and feel confident about yourself.
I was inspired by some home made soaps I found at a local craft market, but the branding and packaging was a bit rough, so I gave it a go.
Back at BCIT I had to take a class called Video Editing and Shooting, and we had to film an EPK for a local band (Electronic Press Kit). I couldn't afford very decent equipment, so at the time I bought the cheapest MiniDV Camcorder (that had a mic input) at Best Buy.
"This BBA will fill the gap identified through consultations with business owners and managers, job descriptions and postings, co-op postings and external industry advisors. Our research has clearly demonstrated that a disparity exists between what educational institutions offer students in the way of required training for marketing management positions and what employers need and want in today's graduates. This practical degree will focus in providing students with applied skills in Marketing Management while at the same time preparing those students who are interested to continue on to graduate studies. The program will have the advantages of intensive applied training and an emphasis on marketing management and new media analytics."
When I took a Consumer Behaviour course at Kwantlen last summer, one of the class projects was to submit a video promoting Kwantlen's new BBA in Marketing Management. There was a contest. I won third place.
