Almost a decade ago, our small but mighty advertising agency in Nanaimo, B.C. won its first award: A gold Hermes Creative Award win for web development. Since then, we’ve added 54 more to our award wall and are setting the bar even higher for the future (yes, we want to double that score). To achieve this goal, we’ve taken our own advice and mapped out our ideal client for the new year. Here are the industries we believe have award-winning project potential in 2023.
Branding for manufacturing.
Canadian manufacturing accounts for 1.7 million full-time jobs in a wide range of sectors. For Canada’s economic future, it shows great opportunity as many companies are moving operations back to North America and looking for local areas to build facilities. One of our clients, TactEx Industries, is a great example of a local manufacturing company that took off this past year. From name development to brand identity and a fully responsive website, our team helped put TactEx on the mining and exploration map. Keep your eyes peeled as we’ll be submitting this project for awards in the new year.
Web development for professional services.
Some of our favourite partnerships from the past few years have involved web design and web development for mid-size businesses (50+ employees) in services like accounting, engineering, and law.
Take DMCL Chartered Professional Accountants for example. This vibrant team of accountants wanted to spruce up their website to better serve their clients, showcase their culture, and attract new talent. Our team delivered on their goal and in return, here’s what they had to say:
“I didn’t want a templated website. I wanted a website that was tailored to our clients; a website aimed at uncomplicating the complicated—both through navigation and content—and walking the talk of an approachable and relatable brand. The team at Array got it. Not only did they deliver on our vision, they delivered beyond our expectations (and might I add on-time and on-budget).”

We’re hopeful this will be another award-winning project in 2023.
Marketing collateral for the renewable energy sector.
Canada is leading the way in renewable energy production. In 2018 alone, Canada produced over two-thirds of its electricity from renewable sources. With federal and provincial rebates available for residents, businesses, and municipalities investing in sustainable upgrades is becoming increasingly popular. In the past year, our client Shift expanded their solar installation services from the west to the east. To support their expansion, our graphic design team put together marketing assets to support their sales efforts. From Youtube video graphics to a printed brochure and social media management, we’re proud to be a partner in their growth.
The best part? We’ve already won a gold and platinum award for creating their web design and web development in 2021.
We want you to be our next award-winning project.
Our full-service advertising agency is ready to partner with businesses that want to scale up. If you’re ready to bring more leads through your door, our team of digital marketers, graphic designers, copywriters, and web developers is here to support you. (And hopefully, win some cool awards while doing it.) Let’s make 2023 the best year yet.
