Hope Air is a not-for-profit that works to provide those in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home. In Canada, healthcare coverage starts at the door of the doctor’s office. How you get to the doctor and any related travel costs fall to you. Hope Air is the only national charity providing free flights to low-income families who must travel to specialist medical care that does not exist in their communities. Hope Air believes that where you live in Canada and how much money you make should not determine your ability to access our healthcare system. A free flight lets families focus on what is truly important – their health.
 
Goals of the new Hope Air website included creating a website that was visually and structurally appealing to Hope Air’s audience, which would serve as a major component of their overall communication strategy. It was important to create a compelling first impression to visitors by showcasing a fresh, modern look to engage stakeholders while connecting the right user to the right content to drive them to take action.  Clearly conveying the impact that Hope Air has on people’s lives in an authentic and compelling manner was a priority.
 

“Hope Air is very pleased with the outcome of our new website. A.K.A. was able to incorporate the unique features we required with novel solutions."

Doug Keller-Hobson,
CEO

Luminato Festival, Toronto’s Festival of Arts and Creativity, is an annual ten-day celebration of the arts launched in 2007.  The festival is a global multi-arts festival dedicated to performance, visual art, music, theater, dance, and more.  Luminato Festival required an online presence that would celebrate the four pillars of Accessibility, Diversity, Collaboration, and Transformation to guide and inspire the Festival program. A.K.A was honored to work with the talented Luminato team to reimagine the festivals digital presence for their 10th anniversary and beyond.

The result was a dynamic and engaging website with a custom festival schedule planner to help festival goers plan and share their personalized festival schedule, leaving users with a lasting impression. A flexible website that has the capacity, and key capabilities to transition to their annual festivals for years to come. A.K.A. continues to work with Luminato each year to help launch each new festival season. 

The website has been a hit with the web community; Named a Site of the Month and nominated as Site of the Year by Kentico. Most recently, the site was nominated for Awwwards.com award.

We would love if you could vote for Luminato for an Awwwards.com award here!

Luminato’s 2018 Festival Season was just announced, check it out and buy tickets here!

A.K.A. is always honoured and delighted to work with Oakville Hospital Foundation and celebrate the positive impact their work has on the Oakville Trafalgar Hospital and their community. Their Chief Development Officer shared her testimonial about the recent award-winning website design and development done for the foundation by the A.K.A. team;

"For more than a decade, Oakville Hospital Foundation has had a trusted and valued relationship with A.K.A. New Media. Together, we have launched several redesigns over the years and their insights and strategies have always hit the mark. The experience during our most recent web redesign was no different. From the very beginning, they took the time to truly listen and understand how our Foundation and the community we serve has evolved. They helped us build a vision for this project and engaged our most important stakeholders along the way. Their expert knowledge, professionalism, and exceptional customer service made the whole process feel effortless. The end result is a beautifully designed website that is not only functional, responsive and user-friendly, but also reflective of our organization’s brand and personality."

Every month, thousands of websites are developed globally using Kentico CMS. Kentico showcases only ten of the best designed and developed websites. A.K.A. is thrilled to announce that the new website we developed and designed for client, Baycrest Centre, has been selected as one of the "Top Ten Websites for February 2018." Baycrest Centre’s foundation, Baycrest Foundation, was also designated a Top Website from Kentico.
 
Baycrest Centre is an academic health sciences centre fully affiliated with the University of Toronto. Baycrest provides an exemplary care experience for aging clients, combined with an extensive clinical training program for students and one of the world’s top research institutes in cognitive neuroscience. Through its commercial and consulting arms, Baycrest takes its sought-after expertise, education and innovations to other healthcare organizations and long-term care homes, both in Canada and internationally. Baycrest Foundation’s mission is to enrich the quality of life of their community by providing crucial funding to Baycrest Centre in support of programs and services that promote excellence in care, research, education and innovation in brain health and aging.
 
The new websites needed to clearly reflect and promote the areas of excellence that Baycrest embodies (Care, Research, Education, Innovation), and do so in a user-friendly, user-focused and intuitive fashion. Baycrest is celebrating of their centennial this year and their online presence needed to better reflect the organization and ensure that it is positioned optimally for the centennial and beyond.
