Full Steam ahead for Bearing Capital Partners
We launched a brand new website for Bering Capital Partners, a full service Financial Services firm based out of Mississauga with offices in Toronto and Mississauga. With great people at the heart of this steadfast and knowledgeable firm, we wanted to put the hopes and dreams of the clients ideal target up front and centre. We created a website that put the clients, their needs, wants, hopes and dreams front row and centre with an aspirational theme and easy to uderstand methodologies, systems and processes. The lexicons of language in the financial services space can often overwhelm and confuse the unitiated and scare off ordinary non-financial people. We needed to educate, inform and inspire people to live the life they hav always wanted. We took some very complex langiuage and broke it up into easily digested bites that resonates with the client's target market.

Miss Teen Canada - World
We designed and built a cool new Website for Miss Teen Canada World. It provides access to the latest happenings, press and insight coming out of the pageant, sneak peeks at the contestants, blogs about their lives and behind the scenes footage of the finals event. It also gives over fifty contestants from across the country a platform to express their opinions and gossip on the latest happenings. The site was developed from the ground up to expand awareness of the pageant, recruit new contestants, raise money for a worthy cause and generate sponsorship revenue for the organizers.

Its back to School for Macleod Dixon LLP
We launched a Summer Student Recruitment Campaign for Macleod Dixon, a national Canadian law firm based out of Calgary with offices in Toronto, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, Caracas, and Almaty, Kazhakstan. With great people at the heart of this very friendly and amazing firm, we wanted to put the students themselves up front and centre. We created a 24 page brochure that prominently featured the students, lawyers and staff behind the steel and glass towers out there in the Oil Patch.
