Collective Architecture is a boutique architectural firm located in St. John’s, NL that is owned and operated by husband and wife team Kelvin & Shanna Nyathi. With a focus on unique and sustainable design, their collection of projects represent a truly unique take on residential and commercial spaces.

And as designers themselves, it was a real honour to work with people who speak our language and who were really easy to collaborate with during the entire process.

What We Did

In our research into the architectural firm industry, one trend we came across was a focus on minimalist design. While this trend produces beautiful sites, it also presents a challenge when it comes to content. How do you make a site that’s incredibly streamlined yet still informative?


The name of the game is white space and font choice. These two factors alone made an incredible impact on the overall design of the website. By incorporating a very simple, thin line font with an above average amount of white space, we were able to create breathing room around copy and images and really reinforce the minimalist aesthetic.

There’s no lonelier place for a business than the second page of search engine results.

This is why we make painstaking efforts to ensure all of our clients rank as high as they can for their keywords. From content to code, every site we launch is fully optimized to provide the best organic ranking possible. In the age of quick results and online impatience, ensuring your business ranks well for its keywords is more important than ever. Visibility is the name of the game, and it’s what we create at JAC.

Agencies that understand their users build more effective websites. With all of our websites, we take the time at the beginning to not just understand our clients, but to understand their clientele. As we look through competitor’s websites and understand our client’s goals, we can then begin to craft our navigation, a list of functionality, and a design that ties it all together. The end result is a website meets and exceeds client goals and user expectations.
