The Concept

For Alberta

AIMCo’s work is bigger than individuals: its global reach is for the good of the province of Alberta, for the long term.

Global

AIMCO is promoting Alberta’s entrepreneurial, can-do spirit across global markets and investments.

Diverse

From mountains to prairie fields, ice caves to city skylines, AIMCo’s global investments benefit a diverse range of Albertans.

The Execution

The AIMCo Circle

Incorporating the photography into the AIMCo Circle provides a strong design element throughout the website, reinforcing the theme For Alberta and acting as section identifiers.

Guiding the Eye

Bold keylines provide a way to separate information and cue important headlines, anchoring the typography to the page.

Interactive, dynamic graphs bring the pages to life, achieving more than a static image ever could and encouraging the user to dig deeper.

“Bryce was an amazing collaborator on the AIMCo Annual Report. From the earliest stages of design, he always put himself in the audience's shoes, thinking of the best ways to intertwine beautiful design with an effective user experience. The design of the printed piece was seamlessly adapted for the web experience, and navigating the site was as easy as reading the book from cover to cover. Bryce's work ethic had him become an immediate subject matter expert, which informed the way he designed and structured the website. My favourite thing about working with Bryce is the subtleties in his development and design approach. He always finds new ways to add nuances in design and functionality, and in the case of this site, they received the highest praise from the top executives at AIMCo.”
