A.K.A. Blog

2018 was great for A.K.A. New Media! Our team grew with amazing additions to our talented team, we helped our clients grow and further their causes, and we invested time and effort into our culture and to making a positive impact on our community and world.  We had the honour to refresh communications for existing clients, created new impactful online brands for new clients and had fun doing it!

Here’s a look at some of the stuff we got up to in 2018:

 A.K.A. has had the honour of working with the Oakville Hospital Foundation for over ten years. In January, the newly launched Oakville Hospital Foundation website was named a Website of the Month by Kentico. A.K.A. also had the privilege to work with its longest standing client (close to 20 years), The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, in developing their latest Online Annual Report. Early in the year, AKA raisin rolled out the new and improved Peer-to-Peer and Ticketing modules, enabling hundreds of clients to build custom P2P Fundraising Campaigns and Special Events.

A.K.A. designed and developed a user-centric new online brand presence for both the Baycrest Centre and the Baycrest Foundation in celebration of their centennial year. In February, both sites were named a Site of the Month by Kentico.

In April, the AKA raisin team visited New Orleans for the 55th Annual AFP International Fundraising Conference and networked with clients and other not-for-profit organizations from across North America.  Later that month, the new logo, brand presence and website for Hope Air was launched and it was named a Website of the Month by Kentico.  Hope Air is the only national charity providing free flights to low-income Canadians who must travel to specialist medical care that doesn’t exist in their communities.

In June, we helped Community Food Centres Canada launch a new online presence to better support their vision of a Canada where food is treated as a basic right and central to health. The website was named a Site of the Month by Kentico. Some fun, engaging, successful social media campaigns soon followed. 

In July, we launched the dynamic new website for Jack.org, which has gotten rave reviews and is a strong contender for Kentico’s 2018 Site of the Year! A.K.A. is so honoured to be working with Jack.org as Canada’s only charity training and empowering young leaders to revolutionize mental health.

In October, some of the AKA raisin team made the trip to Philadelphia to attend the DonorPerfect Community Network Conference to connect with partners, clients and prospective clients. In addition to continually welcoming and onboarding new clients, the raisin was busy rolling out a slew of incredible new features, functionality and integrations with many more coming in 2019. Stay up to date with all things raisin on their website.  

In November, some of our AKA Broker team exhibited at the AppliedNet Conference in Nashville, Tennessee where we mingled with the North American insurance community and gave a presentation about effective digital strategies. Later that month, some of our strategy and design team headed to Bethesda, Maryland, to meet our awesome new clients at Round House Theatre (currently in development).

December was busy! We celebrated our Holiday Staff Party by sharing an amazing seven course Italian dinner together while raising funds for charity. We launched the new website for Headwaters Health Care Foundation, which will help inspire, build and nurture relationships with donors – we’ve also started to work with Headwaters Health Care Centre to create for them a new user-centric website, building upon the recent work on the foundation website.  Last but certainly not least, we launched the amazing new website for USDM Life Sciences, a global compliance and technology firm based in Santa Barbara, California.

This is only a taste of all the fantastic work we did in 2018. A.K.A. is incredibly privileged to have a slew of exciting projects underway for long-time and new clients, so stay tuned for what we have on the horizon in 2019! As always, we're ready for new challenges and can’t wait to see what the new year brings.

Greetings from everyone at A.K.A. New Media, we wish you an amazing and successful 2019!
