Evaluating, advising, suggesting, guiding… we’ve spent more than 25 years expressing our opinions to clients, designers, suppliers and students. Seasoned, insightful thinking has translated to great work, along with numerous accolades and awards. But it’s a career highlight when Applied Arts, Canada’s prestigious visual communications magazine, asks you to voice your opinions as their 2013 guest design columnist. We were honoured to get the call and can’t wait to share our views on anything and everything that captures our interest. Read the rest of this entry »

That doesn’t mean we get handed a hard hat and a key card but rather we get the opportunity to delve into Enbridge life through the eyes of employees as we design Link magazine. Each issue tackles a specific topic key to Enbridge’s success including the environment, safety, corporate values, and Enbridge’s controversial Northern Gateway Pipeline project.
