VANCITY COMMUNITY HUB LAUNCHES
" I want to take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you for your tireless effort and relentless commitment and willingness to try something new with us.

BCAMA AWARDS GALA
"First, being named Marketer of the Year was a fantastic acknowledgement of the “good” Vancity was doing…this excitement quickly translated to the reality that “We have to put on a big event”! But, given the amazing folks involved from so many perspectives, it was never intimidating. After all, with such great partners and such a great story to tell, we had a recipe for success. A deep thanks to everyone involved for the passion, commitment and unbridled enthusiasm to attend to every detail make sure we took every opportunity to give folks a real “Vancity experience.” It goes without saying that we could not have done it without each and every one of you, but more importantly it would not have been the same without you.

They helped us produce the public lecture by Dr. Robert Reich at the Orpheum Theatre that was webcast around the world. Their dedicated team produced flawless results. They always keep their clients vision in focus and helped us to create a successful event that successfully engaged SFU with our audeince. I would trust them with any future projects, from a small gathering to a large public event, Anigraph will get the job done."

IDEAS FAIR VANCOUVER
"On November 3, 2007 the City of Vancouver hosted an Ideas Fair where City staff worked with community, arts and business organizations to identify potential community celebration activities during the two-year and one-year countdown to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. The success of this event was heavily dependent on the creative direction of D.F.Hopkins. Our decision to involve her at the design stage of this event was the best decision we made."
