Branding: SFU Surrey - TD Community Engagement Centre
The Mask.jpeg

There's nothing more important than family.

This summer, Vin Diesel graced our screens with the ninth iteration of the Fast and Furious saga. The befuddling triumph of this film franchise is that — despite every single character’s Sisyphean addiction to driving recklessly and crashing and then doing it again in an even bigger and more absurd way — they are a love story. A family story. Family means something bigger.

This is why we are excited to announce our big name change, completely inspired by the Fast and the Furious films.

The SFU Surrey - TD Community Engagement Family.

Our catchphrase:
"We're not just hiring paid and volunteer positions. We're recruiting family."
I'm Ready To Join The FamilyOkay, you caught us. We're not changing our name. SFU branding guidelines wouldn't approve that anyways. The Vin Diesel memes took us to a weird place this summer. BUT we are looking for talented people to support the biggest family of all - the community.

We're waiting for you to share your energy and expertise. Getting involved won't be like a vehicle-centric action flick: with the elegant squeal of urgent rubber, the enhanced rumble of artisanal engines, the frantic close-ups of white-knuckle gear shifting, the sight of flashy cars careening through the air as various civilians scream and flee from bombastic explosions.

But it'll certainly add depth to your resume and give you some great references from community partners that will help speed up your professional development.

Wow, those equally fast paced comparisons are exciting!
