Fact sheet

Canucks Autism Network Reveal Gala

When Vancouver Canuck’s owner and Canucks Autism Network founder Paolo Aquilini asked us to develop a program for the inaugural Reveal Gala he wanted to convey the challenges faced by families living with autism through a design that would feature content presented upside down and backwards. It was a very clever idea, but a delicate concept to execute. We needed to invoke some frustration, but fundamentally inspire reader engagement. We came up with a cool back-read approach that began by describing autism realities and CAN’s work, but then flipped into a front-read catalogue of spectacular auction items. The publication did the job nicely; a call out from gala host George Stroumboulopoulos helped garner attention.

We also supported gala communications through gala branding and social media strategy, and our design of a Thank You print ad commemorating this glamorous and resoundingly successful fundraiser.

Steelcase

Global workplace designer and creator, and legendary office furniture maker, Steelcase was facing a challenge: the design of its Applied Research Consultancy’s reports had become outdated and cumbersome for clients. Supporting Steelcase ARC during its real-time engagement with LinkedIn NYC, we created a novel 12”x12” booklet format that folded out into a full poster for wall display. Inside, content was delivered in “snackable” bites that paired eye-catching graphics with sharp insights to convey the outcomes of Steelcase ARC’s engagement with LinkedIn. Custom photography of LinkedIn staff helped make the report relatable and personal for readers.

Beyond these novel and inviting reports we also produced animated presentation materials and other collateral to support the ARC team.

We worked with Randall and his team to produce the wonderful deliverable for LinkedIn a few years ago. LinkedIn were very impressed and our engagement team had a great experience working with Randall to translate our insights into a very impactful deliverable for the client.
