Island Treasures – Olympic Edition

One of my favourite part about the olympics is seeing the design that comes out of the host country. It gives us an idea of what design trends are happening in other countries, and can often serve as good inspiration to use on our local projects. So in honour of the opening of the Olympic Games, here are our Island Treasures, Olympic Edition.

Island Treasures – February 2nd

<p> Generic remark about how it’s February already.</p>

Great, now that we’ve got that out of the way we can dive back into our favourite part of the week…Island Treasures! Before we jump in though I’d like to just make it clear that any business or resource we feature here has in no way asked us to or frankly even known we would be including them. Everything we choose to include is 100% because we believe strongly in them/it and think that there is a benefit to providing them to you as readers! No bullshit, just treasures we love…

Trails of 1885 Website – Island Project Spotlight

It’s Thursday, so that means time for a throwback…all the way to 1885. Last year we were fortunate enough to work with the folks at Tourism Saskatoon and the Trails fo 1885 to redesign their website. Here is how it used to look.

The website needed to highlight the different sites that you can visit that were part of the Trails of 1885 history. But as part of our discovery we realized just how much this story covered. The main feature of the website is the homepage (after you select your language). This serves as an interactive timeline that takes the user through the history of the North-West Resistance.

 

The website also has a page for each site, where you can learn more about its history, location, hours, upcoming events, and even view a photo gallery of that location.

Also featured is an interactive map, so users can see the proximity of locations to one another, and find convenient driving routes between each site.
