Deloitte Canada | TMT Predicts

Deloitte’s annual TMT predictions reveal the technology, media and telecommunications trends that will be making an impact in the next 12 months. Our goal was to get people's attention, and encourage them to check out the report.

Featured by SlideShare as “what’s hot” for four days running, the presentation received a 56% year-over-year increase in views, and a 94% year-over-year increase in downloads of the report.


From Google Adwords to LinkedIn, and Facebook to a buzz-generating SlideShare presentation, the 2013 campaign — with its trending topic hashtag, #deloittepredicts — was a winner.

Ontario Energy Board (OEB) | Website Redesign

A significant goal of the OEB's 2017 website redesign was to give the public greater transparency into what the OEB is and how it works, and to increase consumers’ energy literacy. Our content and UX strategy helped us write and organize clear, straightforward content to give consumers  information about complex issues such as hearings, licensing and directives, and to explain the OEB's role and processes. And, we encouraged consumers to participate: to have a voice and take part in the process.

General Motors of Canada | Certified Service Videos

30 second bites of information about vehicle maintenance — tire tips, wheel alignment, oil change, brake care and more — delivered with the clock ticking. 

Marc, our relatable certified service expert, provides quick, understandable information while animations add visual interest and illustrate his points. As our producer said, “Wow, I’m actually learning a lot!”

We created 10 videos in French and English — and three more for the US market —for use on YouTube, in digital CRM, in dealerships and on the Certified Service website (CDs Jinnean Barnard/John Alabaszowski).

General Motors of Canada | Safe and Sure

This digital, social, print, and experiential CRM program included free child car seat installation workshops at Chevrolet dealerships for parents and caregivers, no matter what type of vehicle they drove (non-GM makes were welcome).

It taught caregivers about child car seat safety via a series of 4 online videos, created awareness of Chevrolet vehicles’ safety features, generated goodwill, and got customers into the leads funnel.

The campaign also included a website for booking workshop attendance and an accompanying social media campaign for Twitter and Facebook.

General Motors of Canada | Owner Centre

The GM Canada Owner Centre provides relevant, useful content for owners of four brands of GM vehicles – from lifestyle and brand-related feature articles to auto care and loyalty offers – along with tools such as owner’s manuals and maintenance schedules. A large database of owners, targeted by brand, receives regular emails driving them to the site, which also gets significant traffic through organic search.

The site is clean, simple, and easily navigated. And informative: Ever wonder what the difference is between an SUV and a crossover? Or how winter tires work? It's all here...

General Motors of Canada | Truck Launch DM

We let truck owners know about the benefits of the all-new GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado to generate excitement prior to the vehicles’ launch.

The double-sided Colorado piece shown here plays up the two sides of every truck owner —the “work-hard play-hard” side, looking for payload and hauling capacity, and the “everyday” side, seeking comfort and connectivity. 

The pieces included a purchase offer, and variable copy for current Chevrolet truck owners and “conquest” targets.
