    Bayshore HealthCare | The Things We Do — Georgina

    Our latest project with Bayshore HealthCare puts the spotlight on their Home Care Services. We asked Bayshore caregivers to share their personal experiences and stories while on the job.

    The response was full of positive and thoughtful recounts of all “the things they do” and what it’s like to care for their clients. We brought their caregivers’ true stories to life with papermation magic.


    A Goodbye Note From Loretta

    Last week we said farewell and good luck to our #villageintern, Loretta Yang. Before she headed to her next adventure, she took the time to share her Village&Co. experience.

    What would you tell all future interns?

    Create new opportunities for yourself by thinking 2 steps ahead; an agency’s a fast-paced environment (hustling is mandatory), and by continuously asking yourself “what next?” you’ll find great chances to jump into new projects you’re interested in.

    What was the best advice you received while at Village&Co. to date?

    “Think bigger.”

    Thoughts on Social Media before and after?

    - Before: Social media keeps everyone connected.
    - After: Social media is a lifestyle, it makes the world go round, and content can take weeks for an office to curate #respect

    Funniest/Best one liner was ____________:


    Sum up each member of the team with one GIF.

    Justin: Justin when he comes up with a brilliant creative strategy
    Nora: My expectation of Nora on religion.

    Janice: Janice when eating lunch - because productivity is key.

    Cassandra: Cassandra when content generating gets overwhelming #trooper

    Carolina: Carolina when hot liquids became her enemy

    Monkey: Monkey just being monkey. #theusual 

    Sum up your experience at Village&Co. in one GIF.

    Final words from Loretta

    For starters, I’ve definitely never met a more dedicated group of people. In fact, saying the Village&Co. team lives and breathes social media would probably be an understatement.

    From the minute I walked in, I was welcomed by bunch of crazy characters who showed me the ins and outs of pitching, client management, content development — and the best place to go for hipster gourmet coffee.

    Though this quick 3 month internship flew by, I’m so grateful for all the insight I’ve been able to gain in this unique agency environment. Emojis are a mutual language in this office, and it’s been a blast being able to learn from a team that perfectly balances work and play.

    Thank you for an invaluable experience, I’ll never forget it!

    Tourism Calgary x #StyleYYC = Tweet Dress

    You may recall the excitement surrounding our collaboration with our friends at Tourism Calgary to create the first-ever “Tweet Dress" in late 2012. This unique initiative allowed us to get creative and highlight Calgary’s world-class style and engaging fashion community. 

    Leveraging Tourism Calgary's active Twitter community, we asked, “What's in style in Calgary?” The question ignited Calgarians' enthusiasm and the conversations poured in using the hashtag #StyleYYC.

    By reaching out to Calgary’s tourism, fashion and shopping enthusiasts online, we were able to fuel the creation of a truly unique social object. It is our pleasure to share this innovative, couture dress that embodies Calgarian style with those who could not be at the unveiling in person.

    Ladies and gents, the first-ever couture Tweet Dress.

    2012 has truly been one extraordinary year. Happy New Year to our friends and families, clients and colleagues of the past, present and future. We can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!

    Tourism Calgary x Paul Hardy Tweet Dress

    It’s no secret that Calgary is a city on the rise and working with Tourism Calgary has been an exciting venture for us as it provides endless opportunity to mirror our strengths and get creative

    To celebrate this stylish city, we partnered Tourism Calgary and Paul Hardy together to launch this unprecedented initiative. The Tweet Dress is a one-of-a-kind design composed of tweets sent to Calgary’s Twitter answering the question, “What’s in style in Calgary?” using the hashtag #StyleYYC. This project was launched during Hardy’s milestone event on October 20, which was attended by some of the top names in the Canadian Fashion Industry. 

    As the operators of Calgary’s social media platforms, we will be engaging users by sending out different questions via Twitter highlighting unique aspects of what is in style in Calgary, from architecture and food, to the Mayor and their sports teams. Nothing is off limits when style is this abundant in a thriving city. Throughout it all, we will be sharing updates from Paul himself as he shows us everything that goes into creating this one of a kind piece. 

    Paul will be unveiling the Tweet Dress at Calgary’s biggest private shopping event, ‘Twas the Night at The Core on November 28 and we can’t wait to see the finished product! For a chance to have your tweet featured on the Tweet Dress, join us on Twitter and tell us what you think is in style in Calgary using #StyleYYC. 

    Before they were grandparents, they were champions.

    We first launched “Before They Were Grandparents” with our friends at Bayshore Home Health, to create an online platform where old and young could share their stories. Through dozens of photo and video submissions and a unique live storytelling event, this fresh, online initiative has grown into an exciting offline movement.

    Continuing our storytelling series, the second “Before They Were Grandparents” event focused on Vancouver’s rich history of sport. Gathering a diverse group of athletes together, many of whom are members of the BC Sports Hall of Fame, we held our event in the fitting venue of Vancouver’s Athlete’s Village. Our guests were captivated by our storytellers and, considering the accolades they hold, we felt there was no better banner for our event than, “Before they were grandparents, they were champions”.
