Website Redesign & Development

A major milestone of our partnership with South Eastern Ontario was the creation of a comprehensive, responsive and complex tourism website that provides resources on 700+ tourism activities available to visitors. In this 1400+ page website, interactivity includes; reactive filtering, wishlist tagging, user generated galleries, and aggregation of content specific blogs.

Graphic Design

In support of the digital media creative, the 1dea creative team also developed a vast array of the graphic design pieces that aligned with the overall brand presence. Print advertising and retail/bus graphics highlighted our print creative and provided millions of additional impressions.

Marketing & Strategy

A large part of the Agency of Record contract was the ongoing support for marketing strategy in all capacities. This required the ongoing synergy of the 1dea’s marketing, creative, social and account management teams all working together in unison.
