CSTGA – New Brand and Website

CSTGA - Responsive Design

Who: The Canadian Secure Token – Governance Authority (CST-GA) is the national governance authority tasked to ensure the successful and effective deployment of the STIR/SHAKEN governance framework in Canada, to enable carriers to provide consumers with a measure of trust in caller ID.

How: For the logo mark, we wanted to created an abstract design that represented in some way what the organization stands for. In that respect, we chose the symbol of a shield to represent security – this can be found in the negative space of the mark. Secondly, we wanted something to surround the shield that would represent the governance authority – these are the repeating abstract shapes that make up the design. They also represent positive forward motion and a synergy of communication. The Canadian aspect is represented using the colour red. The website design followed the established brand with a simple yet modern user experience, with custom built infographics.

Sincere thanks to you and the Baytek team for the design, development and delivery of our new website and member portal, we are delighted! From the discovery stage through to deployment it was clear that Baytek were invested in delivering a product that reflected our organization. The team at Baytek translated our message into a professional and engaging web design as well as a well-organized, intuitive member portal. We look forward to continuing our relationship and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Baytek to other small businesses.

We set about creating a very eye-popping yet professional design, all based around their angular brand guidelines. We started out by mapping out what this would look like, working on prototypes for the system. In the end we delivered a website with over 700 pages and documents.

Destination Employment (Hotel Association Of Canada) – New Website

Hotel Association Of Canada - Destination Employment - Website Design

Who: The Hotel Association Of Canada and Tourism Canada presents “Destination Employment” – a program that helps newcomers to Canada gain meaningful employment in Canadian hotels, giving them the experience they need to build a successful future in Canada. This initiative is a win-win for both hoteliers and newcomers to Canada. Hoteliers are faced with an existing problem filling the job vacancies they already have, and newcomers to Canada need opportunities to find employment once they settle in Canada.

How: The Hotel Association Of Canada approached Baytek to create a mini-site that would serve both audiences for their new program, “Destination Employment”. At the kick-off meeting we went through a series of exercises to determine the users of the website, and what content they would need to see. We determined an illustrative and infographic based approach would present a unique and informative experience, so we set about developing a series of illustrations that work to support the content. We developed a custom resources archive to house all their videos and publications. The result is a beautiful, bilingual association website design that works for both potential hotel employees and hoteliers.

WaterPower Canada – Rebrand & New Website

WaterPower Canada - Responsive Web Design

Who: Founded in 1998, WaterPower Canada (WPC) is the national trade association dedicated to representing the interests of the waterpower industry. Its 50+ members span the breadth of the sector and include waterpower producers, manufacturers, developers, engineering firms, organizations and individuals. WaterPower Canada members represent more than 95% of the waterpower installed capacity in Canada, advocating for the responsible development and use of waterpower to meet our present and future electricity needs in a sustainable manner.

How: WaterPower Canada (formerly HydroPower Canada) approached Baytek with a new name and the need for a new website. The new name meant a chance to completely rebrand the association and help put the industry back into the minds of Canadians – it does, after all, generate more than two-thirds of Canada’s electricity. After a key messaging session, we set about a complete rebranding exercise. The idea was to include more of a Canadian presence to the logo mark, while still retain elements that really defines the industry itself. The result is a modern, unique mark that is simple yet embodies what WaterPower Canada represents.

Working with Baytek was a real pleasure; from the planning phase through to execution, they made sure we could get a hold of them quickly and worked with us with great flexibility to ensure the final product was as we envisioned. The team has great creative ideas, is able to guide teams through sometimes complex decision making while always being pleasant and responsive. Well done!
