FER-PAL Infrastructure, a trenchless technology company that offers complete watermain rehabilitation solutions, asked Actual Media to edit and design its 2015 field employee handbook.

Over three years, Actual Media worked closely with the team at Export Development Canada (EDC) to compile and produce a comprehensive list of international construction and infrastructure projects where Canadian firms were leading or active. The project was called Canadians At Work: 50 International Infrastructure Projects and the resulting publications were distributed with issues of ReNew Canada and distributed in English, French and Polish to Canadian consulate and trade offices around the world. A digital, searchable version of the list was also created as a website and available online in both official languages.

Using data collected for our Top 100 2012 report, the Actual Media research team created a white paper to delve further into each sector. The Top 100 Projects White Paper included additional details for each project on financing, funding, and, in some cases, policies and regulations that helped make these projects possible.

OCETA’s Clean Technology Report website was created in conjunction with the print version of the Go-to-Market Report. The site was intended to create awareness and inform the public about clean technology developments in Ontario. Like most of our websites, we deployed an open-source solution to keep costs down and deliver a sharp-looking project on a tight timeline.

In 2011, Actual Media was asked to create an attractive corporate marketing piece for The Municipal Infrastructure Group. With unique sizing (9×9”), bold images, and FSC-certified stock, the brochure we designed is an elegant introduction and reminder of the company’s expertise and experience.

Working with one of our long-standing agency clients, the team at Milestone Environmental engaged our designers to develop a multi-faceted advertising campaign.

To commemorate 100 years of providing infrastructure solutions in Canada, Siemens asked Actual Media to put together a timeline highlighting some of the company’s major achievements. This highly visual and informative foldout timeline poster for Siemens was created and included as an insert with the mailing of ReNew Canada to provide the client with a unique marketing and communications opportunity. Actual provided extensive research, editorial, and design services in assembling the project.

When your three-person start-up balloons to 80 employees, six offices, and becomes an industry leader in two decades, you celebrate!

Most recently, this included search engine optimization strategies for their website, unique #XCGKnows branded e-newsletters, LinkedIn campaigns, and promotional banners and postcards.

Over the course of the past 10 years, Actual Media has provided RCCAO with various marketing, events, and design services. One of these projects included a comprehensive advertising campaign that helped yield several important results including higher visibility in lead-up to key industry events.

Actual Media provided graphic design and editorial services to support the refresh of FER-PAL’s corporate brochure. This important piece of business development and brand collateral is continually refined to help give FER-PAL’s brand a modern, strong presence.

Produced by ReNew Canada, the first series of episodes was sponsored by KPMG and provides a unique opportunity to hear from industry leaders about the future of infrastructure. Ten episodes in total were produced featuring expert insights into the future of Canadian infrastructure issues.

To accompany its brand spanking new website, the Centre for Alternative Wastewater Treatment asked Actual Media to design a brochure suitable for conferences and trade shows. This eight-page marketing piece appeals to prospective clients, students, employees, and funders, and it highlights the Centre’s main activities, as well as its major international projects.

We are proud to work with FER-PAL Infrastructure, one of North America’s leading providers of trenchless technology services. To help support their continued effort to grow this reputation, the Actual Media team helped undertake a refresh of their advertising campaign. This work has resulted in a strengthened brand presence and further optimization across Canadian and U.S. markets.

CNAM is the association of public infrastructure asset management in Canada. Actual Media worked with the CNAM team to develop the strategy, concept, design, and execution of this key publication. In addition to graphic design services, we also provided the full scope of editorial services to produce this brochure, which was created in English and French.

Working with one of our long-standing agency clients, the team at Milestone Environmental engaged our designers to develop a multi-faceted advertising campaign.

We worked alongside the CHAR team to develop an integrated digital communications plan. Services include social media content creation, management, and reporting (Twitter, LinkedIn); e-newsletter management (YES Express); website maintenance/management; analytics; and KPI reporting. Ongoing improvements to the functionality and accessibility of CHAR’s web presence have strengthened brand presence and provide customers with quick access to service information.
