Change can be hard. With change comes the feeling of unfamiliarity that naturally brings with it a certain level of discomfort. But as hard as change is, it is also the key ingredient for growth. A concept we often find ourselves explaining to potential clients.

Last year, with the spirit of the Holiday season in full swing, our team sat down to brainstorm our design for the annual Bits Creative Agency holiday greeting card. As we pondered our options (naturally, a photo shoot of all of our dogs in antlers was a viable suggestion), the discussion turned to how we could make a greater impact through this yearly endeavour.

We’ve been working with the inspiring team at United Way Halifax (UWH) over the past few months, building a campaign aimed at changing 50,000 lives locally. Our team set out to develop a brand for the campaign to encourage a city of doers, tackling poverty head-on through individual actions of giving - both of time & donations.

At Bits we thrive on being a part of the digital world, it’s what we do best and our typical 9-5 day is deeply immersed in technology. That being said, we also really appreciate quality time away from the screen. In fact, many of the bits staff love spending time in the great outdoors. From walking our pups on the local trails to winter camping excursions; we tend to consider ourselves a pretty “outdoorsy” bunch.
