Progressive Unions adopt design excellence.

In early 2002, Baseline was lucky enough to become involved with NOW Communications, one of Canada’s leading social marketing and advertising agencies, to help create some of the most compelling political campaigns for the federal and provincial NDP, coast to coast.

We have also been commissioned to work on numerous identity and communication packages for both local and national unions such as; The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, BC Teachers’ Federation, CUPE, IBEW, The Ontario Public Service Employees Union, The Manitoba Nurses Union, to name a view.

Baseline has helped NOW in creative strategic positioning for identity design, applied to extensive internal and external communication tools. We’ve provided design-lead for public campaigns applied to; billboards, brochures, power point presentations, websites and TV story boarding.

It has always been a pleasure to be called into the NOW office for a briefing and collaborate with a truly committed and fun group of people. Of course with a company name like NOW, I soon learned and came to expect tight deadlines, and the necessary collaborative spirit to not only deliver on time, but be prepared for a myriad of changes, tweaks and long days to meet their clients needs.

  1. That would make both Baseline and Now, progressive in a regressive world that is now represented by movents in the US such as those in in Wisconsin and New Jersey. Does this mean that unions in Canada will be subjected to the same efforts to make them irrelevant?
