A.K.A. Blog

We recently launched a new website for our client Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC). CFCC helps build health, belonging and social justice in low-income communities across Canada through the power of food.

CFCC needed a new website would help achieve their vision of Canada where food is treated as a basic right and central to health, and where everyone has the means, knowledge and voice necessary to access good food with dignity. As CFCC believes that collaboration leads to bigger impact, a primary goal was to transform the CFCC website into an active online communication vehicle that would work as a central knowledge exchange hub for the broader food security sector, all while empowering CFCC staff to manage their online presence efficiently and effectively through best-in-class tools.

The new website has been a success and Kentico has named it one of June’s Top 10 Websites of the Month!

It has been a pleasure working with the amazing CFCC team and A.K.A. looks forward to maintaining a long term relationship with the innovative organization. CFCC's Director of Communication, Christina Palassio shared this about working with A.K.A.:

"Working with A.K.A. has been terrific. The team brought their thoughtfulness and expertise to our project, listened to our needs and challenges, and worked with us to figure out how to meet them. Trying to satisfy the needs of multiple stakeholders can be a daunting task and having the team at A.K.A. on our side was a huge help. We knew that whatever came up, they'd help us figure it out. We've never looked as good on the web as we do today.”

Check out the CFCC website here and make a donation that will have a real impact on the lives of low-income Canadians.

Want to win a trip to see Broken Social Scene live in a new barn in Creemore?

This June, 1,000 people will gather for a magical night under the stars at The New Farm in Creemore to eat great food, hear Broken Social Scene blow the doors off the barn, and raise money for programs in low-income neighbourhoods that increase access to healthy food.  

Win tickets to see this sold-out event here!

For the past nine years, the concert at The New Farm has been bringing bands, chefs, and food-lovers together in support of low-income communities. The event has raised more than $750,000 to support Community Food Centres to buy high-quality produce from small-scale local, organic farms. This year, the event will support programs in five low-income communities in Ontario, and Community Food Centre Canada's national programs.

A.K.A recently launched the newly designed and devleoped CFCC website. Check it out and Donate here!

When users are online, they often share sensitive data with a companies’ websites, such as their name, address, passwords or credit card information.  But how do they know if it is safe for them to share their personal information with a website? How can someone be sure that a website is a safe place where no one will hack or steal their personal information? SSL Certification is the safest way to give more security to your website visitors.

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."

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!
