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!
