The WJ Bocce League

Nothing builds a great team quite like a little bit of competition mixed with a lot of socializing. From the moment the snow is gone, our offices engage in a rather heated, season-long bocce ball league, complete with skill, determination, and a gentle amount of smack talk. With mixed teams across all of our departments, account managers and art directors go head-to-head against strategists and copywriters in a battle to see who is the champion of lunch-hour sports. In all seriousness, nothing makes for a better lunch break quite like fresh air, gentle exercise and socializing.  The bocce league is a great way to stretch our legs, clear our heads, and come back to the office a little more refreshed. Follow us on social media to keep up with the action and cheer on your favourite teams!

Speaking of competition: ever wonder how many seasons Full House was on the air? What about the population of Toronto? Or how many albums Celine Dion put out? Chances are our team has had a disagreement about it and settled it with a coin-friendly bet. It’s a trivial thing, it’s a trivia thing, and if you ever want to join in, just stop by the office. By the way, Celine Dion has put out 11 English-language and 14 French-language albums, just so you know.

Theme Music Days

With the nature of our work, mixed with the rapid-pace of our office, it can get a little stressful sometimes. That’s when our office-DJs take over. While our creative office is hammering out some gorgeous work for our clients, they are also curating the perfect themed mix to keep the office moving. From 90’s hip-hop to the quintessential dad-rock, our themed music days keep the office happy.

In the name of transparency, every publicly-traded company must put out an Annual Report. It’s a way for them to divulge crucial information to shareholders and ensure a formalized source of communication is accessible to the public. Annual Reports are valuable tools investors utilize to make informed decisions about potential investments. For publicly-traded companies, they are not only a necessity, they are critical.

But what if your business is not public? Perhaps you’re a small business owner or run a non-profit organization. While you’re not legally required to do so, producing an Annual Report can prove to be an invaluable marketing tool. Here’s why:

At WJ we work closely with our clients to not only make their vision a reality, but create something they didn't even imagine possible.

Recently, WJ worked with Meridian Development to launch the branding of their newest property, Escala - a new one-of-a-kind building that encompasses the style, sophistication and culture of Saskatoon’s Broadway Avenue and scenic river valley area.

We developed a brand, website and multiple marketing materials that speak to the nature of Escala and would speak volumes about the luxury and high-quality living it offers.
