NABS

On March 2nd, 2017, NABS (National Advertising Benevolent Society) hosted its 6th annual Cannes Lions Reel 2016/17 Screening fundraiser. William Joseph was proud to sponsor the event, by providing NABS with marketing collateral including an e-blast, social media posts and a thank-you logo reel. WJ began by formulating a creative concept based on a classic old-Hollywood vibe, while also having fun with wordplay by incorporating the taglines “Reel-Good” and “Thanks for Reel” throughout. The creative concept was kept simple, which enabled it to be used across a variety of platforms. The event was a huge success, and William Joseph was thrilled to have been given the chance to take part.

NABS provides support and assistance for professionals in the marketing and advertising industry, whether that be through financial assistance, career or personal counselling, or other EAP services. NABS supports Canadian professionals who are facing personal, career and family challenges due to illness, injury, unemployment or financial difficulties.

Edwards School of Business

2017 marks the 100th year since the business school admitted its first class of students. To celebrate the centennial, William Joseph sponsored a marketing campaign to celebrate this momentous year. We crafted a written and visual campaign for the year-long centennial celebration, complete with key messaging and a positioning statement that will work in tandem with the visual articulation of the campaign theme. The common thread linking the past and present for Edwards is the sense of community, citizenship and togetherness that unites its students; we captured this sentiment in the two-part tagline we developed: “Together We Build. Together We Thrive.”

In the past, we’ve also sponsored the William Joseph Communications Case Competition presented by the Marketing Students’ Society. The winners of this annual competition have gained real-world work experience through an internship at our WJ head office, where students learn what agency life is all about.
