Shift Urban Cargo

If you commute downtown, you have probably seen one of Shift's unique cargo tricycles buzzing along Howe street or the Dunsmuir viaduct. A worker owned and operated cooperative, Shift is the perfect solution to Vancouver's bustling and dense urban core: replace costly, emissions-heavy truck transport with regular deliveries by cycle.

North Cariboo Air

North Cariboo Air is a Western Canadian-based charter airline. Their fleet is currently at 25 aircraft and growing. We hope to help spur that growth with a beautiful CMS solution replacing a tired and buggy static site that did not reflect the service North Cariboo offers.

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.


This was an extensive re-brand of the oldest active company in BC. The Oppenheimer Group have been operating in the province since 1858.

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.

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 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.
