Welcome New Clients…

In August, we began work with the Timis Corporation, based in London UK.  They are a natural resource company focusing on mining, oil and gas.  We’ll be working with them on a rebranding of their corporation, a redesign of their website and the development of all new print materials.  So far, the logo is well under way, and we’re about to break ground on the website.

Throughout the fall, we’ll be redesigning and rewriting all the content on the website for Holloway Zaiser Group, a consulting company focusing on assisting organizations as they create and navigate change; they also do mediation and strategic planning, and offer workshops and training across North America.

We’re also pleased to be working with the award-winning Eighteen Bridges magazine, out of Edmonton, Alberta.  In addition to developing a Media Kit in preparation to take over their advertising sales, we’ll also be expanding their reach with some creative audience development initiatives.
