Business Challenge

With a growing number of the South Asian population in Southern Ontario reaching the age of retirement or already in their retirement years, the community was in need of a retirement residence harmonious with wellness, culture and South Asian cuisine tailored to individual preference.There was also the age-old stigma that children of South Asian parents must take their parents in and care for them… putting aging parents into a retirement home is seen as a big taboo within the South Asian community.

Develop a brand and marketing campaign that redefines the concept of retirement living for the South Asian community. Break the taboo that aging South Asians must move-in with their children and open their minds to embracing a retirement residence that provides an environment of new independence, holistic wellness, and companionship.

Jeevan means life, and Niwas means place of residence. Building upon the brand name, BTI designed a logo that captured the very essence of beauty, love and life itself within South Asian culture by using a peacock silhouette. Various marketing collateral was created to help build brand awareness and introduce a much needed service within the community.
