Knoword 2010

Knoword is a fun, addictive word game. Players are given the first letter and dictionary definition of a word, and it is their mission to figure out what the word is.

Knoword has been featured on Netted by The Webbys, Lifehacker and The Next Web. Our iPhone app sat comfortably in the iTunes top 10 educational games for several months in 2011.

Fishsticss is a tool made to convert antiquated CSS files to the cool, new LESS format. The tool also cleans up nasty CSS habits such as extreme indentation (or a lack thereof), and creates colour variables to keep stylesheets extra clean.

Tweet The Blues

Tweet The Blues 2012

In this promotion for Burnaby, BC's Blues and Roots Festival, we invited the public to tweet us their blues using the hash tag #tweettheblues. Chicago blues legend, Jimmy D. Lane then improvised a blues tune on the spot and we broadcasted the action live online for 3 days leading up to the festival.

Drinks From Summer Else

Drinks From Summer Else 2011

In order to promote JOEY Restaurants' summer drink menu, we created a twitter-based contest. Guests of the restaurant entered using the hashtag #JOEYDrinks and proceeded to spam their friends to garner retweets, pushing their taxi closer to the airport. The first entrant to reach the tarmac won a trip voucher.
