Nico Taus RGD and the team at Studio123 worked collaboratively with ARC to bring their existing brand to the next level with a new responsive WordPress website that lets users explore climbing courses, yoga classes & workshops and book private sessions on an energetic and branded platform.

Meggan Van Harten RGD and the team at Design de Plume created the branding and the awards that would be presented to musicians at The SOCAN Foundation Her Music Awards.
The awards are designed to celebrate and support female-identified Canadian music creators who are on the verge of taking their careers to the next level.
John Godfrey RGD and the team at Chargefield designed the key art for Portrayal, a documentary about a young man’s relationship with his family becoming compromised when he investigates a dark secret from their past, involving his grandfather’s paintings.
The key art features a composition rendered in 3D reflecting the tangled, layered relationships between the artists he investigates.
New COVID-related Projects
Carolyn Harman RGD, Recreation, Cultural and Facility Services, City of Ottawa, developed "Dexter the Parkasaurus”, a mascot created to engage virtually with kids during the pandemic.
The success of the weekly colouring sheets showing Dexter doing fun things you can do at home during the pandemic, led to developing personalized birthday videos that parents can request to be sent for their kids on their birthday; cameos in our Park Ambassador videos educating about social distancing; and most recently an awareness element to help kids wash their hands and sneeze/cough safely when returning to our facilities.
Oscar M. Aldana Provisional RGD, Designer at Hambly & Woolley Inc., designer a poster series, experimenting with geometry to depict the idea of isolation and the feelings he experienced at the beginning of the lockdown.
He chose three words that had been in his mind during this uncertain time; patience, home and distance, as a reminder to stay home, keep distance and be patient.
Denis Leclerc RGD and the team at Costa Leclerc Design, in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, created a series of simple social media posts focused on awareness, kindness and support.
Conceived around their collection and love of designer toys, the posts provided a light-hearted, whimsical approach to disseminate information during this difficult time.
Derwyn Goodall RGD and the team at Goodall Integrated Design developed public health messaging to promote COVID-19 awareness.
Twelve visual posters were produced to disseminate the message with an aim to change behaviour.
Alona Topolnisky Affiliate Member and the team at Durham Tourism collaborated with local Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) and the team at Kleurvision to develop the Downtowns of Durham website and social media campaign.
Developed in response to the COVID-19 crisis, Downtowns of Durham offers residents and visitors a chance to explore each of Durham’s 13 downtown “main street” shops, restaurants, and services virtually, as they recover. The website allows users to see which businesses are operational, and which offer delivery, curbside pick-up, or online shopping.
