August is an award-winning design and technology company with full-time staff across Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. Yet we work at a local level, with a local heart.
A team of digital specialists and practitioners, we are values-driven. We don’t write them in a document to file them away; we live them, every day. This can be seen in our tenure as a Certified B Corporation; a membership that aligns with our approach and acknowledges the work we do with government, institutional not-for-profits and non-government organisations throughout the world.
While proudly independent, we are an active member of the Society for Digital Agencies (SoDA). SoDA is a global, invite-only organisation made up of leading creative and digital agencies worldwide. Our membership allows us to benchmark and set best-in-breed global standards for staff, clients, and operations.
We deliver meaningful digital change, for government, business and for cause, by creating and executing accessible, evidence-based strategies and technology solutions spanning digital design, product development, and brand communication.
For the 2017-18 Winter season, August delivered 90,000+ safety actions for the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada.
The Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC) uses a national public education initiative, called ‘Be Tire Smart’, to communicate essential tire care and safety information to people of all ages.
In collaboration with TRAC and a leading Canadian video production agency, we ran a promotional multi-channel digital campaign for the 2017/2018 winter period. The goal? Drive traffic towards the Be Tire Smart educational initiative to promote safer, more efficient driving techniques to young Canadians across the country.
Given the modest budget and vast geographical spread of the target audience, we developed a highly cost-effective digital and
social media campaign to maximise exposure through targeted, contextually relevant content.
The campaign was a huge success, generating over four million unique impressions across a range of channels, prompting 90,000+
user actions, and driving 16,000 unique users to the website.
