Brock is a place where left and right-brain thinking come together. Students develop rational and analytical thinking in concert with their emotional and creative sides.

Working together with Brock’s marketing team, 180 was busy researching, brainstorming (pardon the pun), conceptualizing and creating unique composites to portray the multi-faceted quality of each Brock Graduate or Professor featured.

APP ATTACK

The CAA Winter Festival of Lights Digital App In early 2012 we approached Dino Fazio, General Manager at the CAA Winter Festival of Lights with the idea of publishing a special edition iPad publication commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Festival. He simply said, “I love it. Do it!” So what’s in the publication? Lots. Every single page includes fun interactive content. From photo galleries, slideshows, videos and more. You can tap, swipe, pinch, zoom and scroll to experience and learn about the Festival in countless ways. We cover the opening ceremonies, the spectacular illuminations, fireworks, concert listings, events and much, much more. This app is the perfect way to spend time with your kids and plan your visit to the festival.

See, watch, hear and touch it all for yourself. Download it at the AppStore.

NEW LIGHT INTO LAUREL

VIEW HOMES

180 approached Laurel View Homes, a well-respected and reputable builder, with a strategy to help them increase sales. We knew we could help pre-sell their homes to potential buyers, long before they visit the sales centre, with new photography and a new website, and that’s just what we did. The web design integrates the stunning new photos of their beautiful, master-crafted model homes. The site is fully responsive and accessible on all smart phones and devices.

10

The result? A visually impactful website that fits the company’s image and is poised to be its biggest Sales Rep!


When builders and homeowners with extra pocket-change want to pimp out their multi-million dollar cribs, Dell Smart Home Solutions is their first call. From home automation, lighting solutions, whole home music, to outdoor entertainment, Dell delivers. Our job was to pimp out their brand with a new logo, stunning photography of executive homes and, coming soon, a new website and showpiece magazine. Stay tuned.

A ROYAL MAKE-OVER Change is a very important part of marketing. Whether it is a complete overhaul or a few creative tweaks periodically, it’s as important to a company to keep its products and offerings fresh, as it is for their marketing.

www.royalpinehomes.com 180 gave Royal Pine Homes a Royal ‘image’ make-over, starting with a TV commercial, stunning new photography and a responsive website.

MINUTES F O R R OUGH I NG

GALE CENTRE WE HOST AND MAKE CHAMPIONS The market and demand for ice-time and tournament facilities is brutally competitive. So we had to get a little aggressive in our approach to position and fill the stunning $40 million Niagara Falls facility, across the country and internationally. We employed our specialty teams to design an unconventional, 8-page ‘sell’ piece that showcases the state-of-the-art four-pad facility, that has already been host to Team Canada’s Junior squad and the 2012 Clarkson Cup.

When you hear Royal Connaught Hotel, you immediately think of its rich history and glamorous reputation. The Royal Connaught is being revitalized and re-born as a gorgeous new luxury condominium and hotel complex. The implementation of this rebranding showcases 180’s core strength of being a full service agency.

The Rebranding of a Historic Icon From strategy to logo design, web to print, photo and commercial production to app development, 180 has created an outstanding overall campaign to combine The Royal Connaught’s rich history with a modern lifestyle.

As we all know, the Pan Am Games are coming to Toronto in 2015. It’s customary for athletes to train and acclimatize in the host country before the competition begins. Every city in the GTA and southern Ontario of course want this business. The economic impact is in the millions or more.

16


SELLING NIAGARA

In 2012, 180 was awarded the contract to develop a campaign to position Niagara as a superior training and acclimatization destination. The strategy and tactics are a work-in-progress but will include: • • • • • •

Sport Niagara brand identity, A new multi-lingual website, Photography, Video tour of Niagara event facilities, A magazine, iPad interactive app customized for target countries and sports.

MARKETING PERFECTION Takes Teamwork.

A benefit of having a full service agency on your side is the ability to draw on a plethora of capabilities on each and every project, as needed. Stanpac’s website redesign did just that; it brought together our designers, programmers, and our photographer to create a unique, fully responsive website showcasing beautiful product photography. To top it off, a one-of-a-kind hand drawn illustration was created by one of our talented designers, for Stanpac’s latest ad campaign. Even we’re impressed!

FUN FASHION REEL Photography as unique as the designs! An innovative clothing company, Before+Again wanted to shake things up with their lifestyle photography. Instead of a typical catalogue style shoot, they wanted something more creative and unique, to show off their personality as well as the product line. With a slogan like “Fun, Fashion, Feel� we knew what we had to do. A series of lifestyle photo shoots and video shoots at diverse locations, from a historic inn, to standing at the brink of a roaring waterfall, these images were beautifully created and the client, thrilled!

Until December 31, 2013 NPEI is offering Niagara Falls hotels, resorts, water parks and major attractions several financial incentives and programs to help offset the replacement of energy-wasting equipment or new construction. We’ll pay you up to 50% of your capital cost investment. And the payback continues. Depending on what you do, that investment will continue to save you money on future electricity costs. The reality is that rates are going up, not down. So why wouldn’t you let us pay you to save now and in the future?

WINERY VIDEO SERIES

180 Style

A typical tasting video? A traditional winery video, complete with footage of grapes growing? We don’t think so. We do things a bit different here at 180. Watch our Flat Rock Cellars video series and you’ll see what we mean. Recently produced in conjunction with Ed Madronich, owner of Flat Rock Cellars (Jordan, Ontario), these videos are anything but ordinary and traditional. They are fun and yet wildly informative.

It certainly helps when your client/video host, is as educated and outspoken in the Ontario wine industry as Ed and who is willing to push the envelope. We call that one cool client... and one awesome video series. Bottoms up!

Thank you Niagara West! Thank you for your support during the Creating Living Memories Campaign. We hope 2013 will be a great year for you! We were touched by the response and generosity of the community. McNally House can always use your help and support.

People tend to take what they have for granted. Be it their families, their jobs, but most importantly their health. When a client approached us to assist with a variety of marketing initiatives for a local not-for-profit, we jumped at the chance to offer our services and give back to our community.

Please contact us at 905-309-4013 or visit us online at www.mcnallyhousehospice.com

Thank you Grimsby!

Help us create Living Memories

This is what Hazel will remember The McNally House Hospice program exists to provide a caring, supportive, residential hospice environment to patients and families within the Niagara West health care area.

McNally House is a home-like residence providing free of charge, 24-hour specialized palliative care to people living with a terminal illness. Running this residence requires a lot of funding that they don’t necessarily get. We developed an Ad Campaign and a Direct Mail piece entitled “Jim’s Story” to help tell the story of McNally House through the eyes of one of its residents. The campaign really hit home to local Niagarans who helped them raise triple the amount of donations’ over last year.

Help us create more living memories. Please donate today!

26

It feels good knowing that we could help make things a bit easier for McNally House staff, volunteers, and residents.


What typically comes to mind when you think of an Inn? Perhaps a place where your grandparents enjoyed getting away to. Not the case at the Stone Mill Inn. Combining a modern interior design with old world charm, the Stone Mill Inn is Niagara’s newest luxurious Inn, Resort and Spa. 180’s Task: Dispel those unfavorable myths and get customers to book rooms. Enter the new tagline “Redefining the Inn.” Using new photography of the breathtaking Inn, we developed a visually impactful website that conveyed its character and modern comforts. Print ads with the same messaging drew interested customers to experience the inn for themselves. www.stonemillinn.ca
