Backup DD Case Study

Backup DD Case Study

7

Strategy

 

We started by doing a lot of research on the company Backup Designated Drivers or DD. After completing our research, the company wanted us to build business cards and posters for their relaunch of their services/website to the residents of the national capital region. Our strategy was to build an identity around Backup DD’s goal to drastically reduce the number of impaired drivers by providing a safe and affordable alternative thus making our roads safer for all.

And knowing this market as well as we do, we knew that that this brand’s promise was very marketable and, as yet, untapped in Ottawa.

 

Identity

 

We wanted to visually convey Backup DD’s accessibility and show their economical and reliable services. The logo was made clearer to display a friendly and straightforward service that could be trusted. At the time, the company had a partnership with MAAD Canada as well. Backup DD wanted all drivers in the NCR to avoid being behind the wheels and let their company handles the service at an affordable and reliable costs.

Messaging

Working on the posters and business cards for Backup DD required a lot of revisions. In fact, constant communication between the design team and the client was necessary to create the desired message through the work being done. The target market for this company was seeking reliable, affordable service and wanted the guarantee of receiving higher standards of customer service through Backup DD. The original drafts were made to promote the core values of the company through giant wording on both cards and posters. We eventually went a different route by improving the colors and the overall feel of both the business cards/ posters.

Ad Campaign

 

We designed their first ad campaign post brand launch to introduce the new look and messaging of the company. The ad campaign builds on Backup DD’s core identity traits – professionalism, safety and affordability. It also featured the new colour scheme used on the official website Backup DD

Here are the final versions of the posters below:

ArtChild Ottawa Case Study

Strategy

523760_533510236675437_1694105906_n.jpg

In Da Industry has been a local company that offers various services in the artistic realm (dancing, cooking, public speaking). We started working with In Da Industry when we were approached to take an in depth look at their new venture: Artchild Ottawa, a non-profit organization registered with the city of Ottawa. The way we work is by first identifying these four factors that would help us understand their competitive landscape: what does ArtChild do, why, for whom and how.

ArtChild intended to work in the community to provide children the opportunity for activities that are no longer readily available within the school system, by continuously providing workshops and classes such as dance, creative written expression, painting and acting. These very same programs are being slowly eliminated and In Da Industry Services came to us to help maintain and continue to provide the artistic expression outside of the classroom.

Identity

We found that we needed to help them refine their positioning , develop a visual identity and targeted core messaging while eventually building their website, if required. By creating awareness about this issue, we help parents be the voice of their children today.

“To attenuate the rich voice of Canadian art, wittingly or unwittingly, is to break off and bury a bright, useful piece of the future. There is no village or city in this world without art, and the legacy of art from previous generations. Art is how minds are nourished, and the healthier our minds, the healthier the world at large”. –PEN Canada

10334300_1014693475223775_7018906638167864115_n.jpg

Messaging

In partnership with In Da Industry Services, through research and planning, we drafted the Public Relations materials to start Art Child Canada, as well as the editing of all official documents such as the ArtChild Constitution . Art Child’s mission is to provide children from all backgrounds with the guidance, support and the opportunities necessary to effectively develop their artistic expression, form positive social relationships and enhance academic performance. The first annual edition set place in Ottawa at Carleton University, 1125 Colonel By Drive 4th Floor.

We developed the Art Child campaign to drive interest and awareness about the Art Child organization and about the large portion of cuts being done in the federal government currently without a great number of the public being acknowledged of this process.

By looking at all the resources accumulated in terms of contacts in the media and online community, we sent out over 400 tweets, 250 Facebook status updates with content links and shared over 150 videos,articles and tools to be aware of the Arts cuts begin done in Canada.

By taking an integrated approach, we integrated all our social networks to our twitter account with the blog, and vice versa. By creating blog articles as sources material for tweets and in turn, twitter was the second highest diver of traffic to the blog, behind only the event weblink on Eventbrite. From photography to promotions to the tone of the website and audio ads, we ensured the success of Art Child on many levels.

In space of a few months, Art Child has gone from being unknown to the Ottawa community to have been endorsed by the city of Ottawa, the Liberal Party of Canada, Wal Mart, Loblaws, Zellers and is looking to expand to the rest of the country in the next few years.

Results

 

The first ArtChild event in Ottawa truly made you think twice about not having any arts in schools. Ottawa’s ArtChild did more than just create awareness about the art cuts. Art Child was an event that brought families together to enjoy the celebration of art at its finest. Now in its fourth edition, the event took place at City Hall this past January 24th, 2015 in the presence of the City Councillor, and has established strong lasting relationships with some great sponsors.

A large number of organizations companies have been supporting the cause ever since being presented the promotional materials including the sponsorship package and the press release we had crafted for ArtChild through In Da Industry Services. The lasting relationships have made ArtChild more successful each year. Here are some of the names from our sponsors:  CKCU, Within Essence Productions, DJ Ben Jamming, DJ Alive from CHUO, Slaysh, Kamakacci, Red Crown Clothing, Kania Couture, Pulse Passion, Hair Junkie Studios, The Hornettes, Sarah Mcclurg Music,  Compact Music,The Riot Police, Driven Dance Ottawa, CHUO, 2econd Touch Media, Ottawakiosk.com, Glebe Streets, B&B Promotions, Queen of the Scene, OD Music, Dream Love Grow, Shop-aholic, Zaneta Pernicova, Xodus Management, Tiny Talent, Top Talent, Models International Management, Suzette P.

Almost all the people that I know use Instagram. When it first came out, many thought it would be a fad. I was certainly not one of them but I have to admit that Facebook acquisition of the company enhanced its status of social media power player. In fact, although it’s only been around for a little more than four years, Instagram boasts 300 million monthly active users who snap and post millions of photos on a daily basis. Beyond friends and family, users can follow brands for behind-the-scenes peeks. As the site evolves, a lot of companies have been using the platform in different ways and some strategies have been more successful than others.Recently,  this cloud-management platform and CRM company you might be familiar with,  Salesforce.com provided  a detailed checklist using the infographic format. In a recent blog post published by Salesforce, they write:

New week , we are at it again. A lot of things have been going on recently in my life. Between finalizing the website for the accessories line launching soon and reaching consumers often on social media for customer service related questions. All these tasks can turn you into a serious workaholic especially if you have deadline to these projects. One thing for sure, is that brands are finally beginning to reckon that dedicating resources to reaching consumers on social media- be it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or another platform du jour – is not only beneficial, but necessary.

Biomed Group Case Study

Biomed Group Case Study

Strategy

As a changing and dynamic industry, this local company came to us with the following challenge: “the website has not been updated in over 10 years. Help us show to the public that biomedical scientists work in healthcare to diagnose disease and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment through the analysis of fluids and tissue samples from patients. Biomed Group provide the ‘engine room’ of modern medicine with 70% of diagnoses based on the pathology results provided by laboratory services”.

Identity

The company cares about the livelihood of patients that will be using their equipment. Biomed Group is essentially a B2B company but wanted to convey a professional yet approachable culture through their website design. The Biomedical Industry Group was incorporated in 1996.  The purpose of the group is to merge and contract the skills of designers and manufactures to the production of “special needs” equipment for hospitals and homecare.  Some products have only a specific need and are produced in low volume.  Other products such as the UniPole I.V. and Medical Support System are produced for a larger market.

Website

The website was created at a time when the internet was at its infancy. In fact, the company original hosting service was GoPapa, a precursor of what is now Godaddy, the largest web hosting site in the world.  By focusing on the main products offered by the company, we improved the online experience by adding bolder colours and creative messaging to the website. This business is open 365 days a year so we included valuable documents for their prospects. Overall, creative navigation and useful information were implemented to improve the usability of this site and position Biomed Group as a trusted source for the production of “special needs” equipments for all hospitals and homecare
