Nettwerk Music Group

The first challenge with Nettwerk’s sweeping new design was to get the thousands of articles of content to transition smoothly from their existing site to the new site. We built a custom import interface to bring all the content over, complete with tags, images and links.

Nettwerk’s incredible roster of clients, relationships and placements and captured in this cleanly scalable Drupal site. It grows weekly with their ever-expanding portfolio and audience without any capacity interruptions.

Pension Calculator

George and Bell, a consultancy, asked us to put together a custom pension calculator to demonstrate the differences between the CPP proposals during the run-up to the election.

Pure front-end JavaScript for the win! Performing the calculations using the browser makes it easy to erase the user’s information from memory, which of course is crucial for this sort of application.

Prism Engineering

Prism is an energy management consulting firm who boast an impressive record of clients throughout BC. From energy auditing to water conservation to lighting design, they combine field-proven reduction strategies with real-time analytics that allow constant monitoring of consumption.

BC Trucking Association

This was an overhaul in every sense of the word. The BC Trucking Association asked us to modernize their look and technological capabilities in order to stay in-step with the modernization of BC's truck fleet.

The new site incorporated new fresh new branding into a theme developed for Drupal. BCTA wanted a full eCommerce package for taking event registration, member dues and supplies, which we accomplished with UberCart.

Capital Tours

Capital Tours is an ever-expanding historical guide to Ottawa, masterminded by the National Capital Comission. We used the incredible PhoneGap platform to build a unified app that was released simultaneously on iOS, Android and BlackBerry. Visitors can take a time-sensitive essentials tour, or customize their experience with topics and alternate perspectives.

The encyclopedic content and rich media in this app was produced by our friends at AldrichPears.

Book Collector Books

BCB is the brainchild of a lawyer, traveller and hobbyist book collector. We worked with him to streamline Magento's front end into a clean, concise interface. The owner's personal collection of over 200 titles will soon be opened to include several other enthusiasts' libraries.


Espressotec's warehouse is an aladdin's den of delectable coffee gear. From beans to grinders to machines, parts and how-to guides, their knowledge of coffee gear is inexhaustible.

We designed and built their new Magento site around a costume module to facilitate their commerce interaction with AmberPOS.

CAG Offsite

CAG Offsite is a series of projects that takes Contemporary Art Gallery programs outside of the gallery and allows audiences to experience contemporary art within the wider context of the city.

The Offsite mobile project uses LAYAR technology to take the audience on artist-designed journeys with an everyday GPS enabled device. The viewer can explore and interact with the work they encounter along the way.

Black Hen Music

Black Hen Music was started by Steve Dawson in 1995, and began releasing albums in 1996. Black Hen is dedicated to producing music that is diverse, eclectic and primarily acoustic-based. Since its inception, Black Hen has released over 30 albums and continues to expand its roster.

Autobox Media developed this site using Drupal 5 and collaborated on design, strategy and layout with Suzanne Stromotich. This site features custom Drupal development and media rich content.

Port City Lights

Port City Lights is a new online magazine about Vancouver arts and culture. They release articles and essays in a monthly issue format. We used Drupal to generate-multipurpose views for articles by issue and theme. PCL uses nonstandard web fonts and new CSS3 browser techniques to put a glossy edge on their design. We're looking forward to using more of these front-end technologies as browsers accept the new standards.
