comPress is the rebranded Vancouver Sun mobile new application designed to appeal to the 18-35 age demographic.

Pacific News Group approached the school in September 2012. We were assigned to them and they acted as our clients. We decided to reevaluate the design of their current new app and rebrand it as comPress. We improved the user interface and designed it in a way that is graphically more appealing, customizable and redelivered the content into small chunks. We were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to present our app for the executives at the Pacific News Group headquarters.
