Ah, December 31st. The last day of the year. A day to reflect what went down this past year and we must say, it’s been absolutely stellar to say the very least. We’ve had the privilege to work with the brightest minds in the creative business, travel all around the world, being invited to speak at Pecha Kucha, work with amazing brands, win awards and of course finally tying the knot with my college sweet heart Denise. Thanks for all the goodness and we’re looking forward to kicking it harder in 2012. We wish everyone a happy new year and world peace.

Canadian Tourism Commission – Illustration Project

Written by . Filed under Drawings. Tagged , , . Comments Off on Canadian Tourism Commission – Illustration Project.

Back in Spring we were approached by the Canadian Tourism Commission to help refresh their social media look with our illustration work. The project was handled by Tribal DDB. The first 4 images featured above were prototypes we did prior to the final illustration work. Here’s an article about the launch of this project via CTC.

Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all get a new look for 2011.

11 April 2011
The Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) has refreshed our principal social-media channels: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Not only has their appearance changed, but the main name, too, to (cue drum roll): “Canada Keep Exploring.” It wasn’t a reno job where we had to call on the services of TV’s Mike Holmes or Debbie Travis, but the new look means a more welcoming presence for travellers, media and industry alike.

Everything online starts with search; with the name change to include “Canada” travellers will find it much easier to find the channels. CTC now has a new avatar, one that will change to reflect certain events such as Canada Day. The avatar was designed by Chairman Ting, an experimental visual workshop in Vancouver, BC, that has previously done work for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and Adidas Originals.

Our Facebook wall is now an “open” platform, so users can make comments and have conversations either among themselves or with us. CTC will look to open the channels for other languages for our key international markets later in 2011.

“The new look is fun and funky, showing iconic Canada in a fresh way that will change perceptions of our country,” says Kate Duffy, CTC manager, Social Media. “Above all, we’re looking forward to having a lot more conversations with past, present and future travellers to Canada.”
