What We’ve Done

Examples and samples

We’ve made good stories great. We've also developed brand tools and processes to help tell them best. We’ve worked and connected with dozens of communities, hundreds of businesses and organizations, thousands of people, and kick-started countless conversations that increased community value and potential.

Take a look at some of the stories we’ve helped tell. And let us know of other stories that we might help tell best.

This is a kick-ass community of coffee makers and coffee drinkers. Kicking Horse Coffee has been waking up the world one kick-ass cup of coffee at a time for over 20 years. 

Kimberley is no stranger to innovation. Though once one of Canada’s most prolific mining communities, locals foretold the need for diversification. And so the community conspired to foster a bustling tourism industry founded upon a theme: the Bavarian City of the Rockies. Today the mine has closed, the locals wear less lederhosen, and the provincial government has bestowed the community with a resort municipality designation. The community possesses many highly desirable attributes. It was challenged, however, on how best to articulate their story in a manner that resonated with existing businesses and residents, while simultaneously attracting diverse new guests, residents, and businesses. 

Save your soles and put yer feet up in the Shuswap. The Shuswap region selected Story & Co. to develop a comprehensive set of communication tools and guidelines. Beautiful, casual, down-to-earth, and great from the ground up: that’s the Shuswap.

How to get ahead in advertising?

Story & Co. worked with this First Nation community to develop communication tools and processes. ?Aq’am is a member of the Ktunaxa Nation, situated in the Rocky Mountains.

Sunny, with a chance of imagination: step into Boundary Country. This region, located near the Okanagan, is renowned for its solace, soft adventure, and Borscht.

Creston Valley, a diverse region intent on growing up and getting noticed.

Story & Co. worked with Golden, BC to develop a community brand that is one of the more fresh and frequently discussed in the industry; it's been used as a benchmark for many other community communication initiatives.

This four-season resort is one of North America's legendary adventure destinations. Story & Co. worked with Kicking Horse Mountain Resort (KHMR) for over half a decade developing communication materials, strategic consultation, and ongoing brand development.

Wildsight is an incredible grassroots organization with an incredible story. They work with people to look after the environment and promote sustainability in BC’s south-eastern corner. Story & Co. worked with Wildsight for half a decade, providing strategic planning and communications overview.

Revelstoke has always been an original BC destination. Today, Revelstoke remains one of Canada’s premier mountain communities, and they turned to Story & Co. for assistance in telling their story.

Sparwood is located on BC's other side, 972 kms from the nearest killer whale and the any sort of proliferation of sushi establishments. This small town with a big truck and a rich coal mining industry worked with Story & Co. to establish communication tools and guidelines for their community. After a couple years of correctly using their communication tools, the city is increasingly engaged and progressive. They were also selected as a site for an $85 million corporate investment, in part because “comparatively, they looked like they were the most intentional.” Not bad.

Sun Peaks Resort is one of Canada’s original resort municipalities. This four-season community is situated in an spectacular mountain setting. For a community, they had a remarkable amount of marketing actions. However, they lacked consistency and continuity in their messaging, and sought to develop a campaign that allowed them to be immediately distinguished, recognized, and differentiated from their competition.

This community has nothing to do with large utensils, and everything to do with original, peaceful living. The Grand Forks area is situated at the confluence of two rivers, hence the Grand Fork. But it is also situated at the crossroads of history.
