Master Planned Development
McKinley Beach is Kelowna’s only master planned lakefront community. Spanning over 400 acres, the development spearheaded by G Group and North American Development Group (NADG) is a multi-phase development with lots and properties that look out over the beautiful Okanagan lake and valley.

The initial phase included lakeview lots that spanned up the hillside area of the community with subsequent phases including townhomes, a commercial Hilltown community, lakefront property, vineyard, small home community, and more.

THE 2019 REBRAND

The McKinley Beach brand evolved from being a community that featured mostly single family lots with custom-built homes and a focus on an upscale clientele, to become a more well-rounded product offering that includes smart-sized homes, townhomes, and commercial offerings that have a broad-based appeal.
In 2019 a new brand was pitched to the McKinley Beach development. This rebrand, dubbed ‘Our McKinley Beach’, would incorporate the development’s growth while also appealing to the residents that call the community ‘home’. By adapting the same branding across all marketing channels and targeting more people at various stages of life’s journey, we were able to capture quality leads and traffic for the client.

CHALLENGES

McKinley Beach, as a brand, has evolved from one of an amenity based lifestyle to one of community and location-based amenities that appeals to individuals, couples, and families, at all stages of their life journey. 

As such, the design esthetic had to evolve with the central theme of the brand.

APPROACH

With the focus being on multiple demographics we took each product and selected a specific photo of a family/couple to go with it to highlight a certain demographic.
The blue colour established in older phases of the brand were kept as it had become well-established and recognizable in the community. The main update in terms of colour was found in the photos of the demographics.
We chose to go with black and white to create a unified look and feel for all demographics. The product shots offered a little pop of colour and helped make them stand out.

It’s the nature of a brand to be ever evolving, so it’s important that the marketing strategy reflects that evolution.
