Become Part of The Story

Identity / Branding      No comment

Become Part of the Story is a fundraising campaign organized by the Teasdale-Corti Foundation and the Lacor Hospital. The campaign invites people like you to support healthcare in Uganda, to help save lives, and to make a difference to an entire community. Behind the Ugandan Lacor Hospital is an incredible story. A Canadian-Italian couple, Drs. Lucille Teasdale and Piero Corti, gave their lives to Lacor, developing it from a small bush hospital into a major health complex. Despite the wars, extreme poverty, AIDS and Ebola epidemics, and the deaths of the founders, the hospital grew to become a beacon of hope to the people of Northern Uganda and a symbol of resilience to the international community. Recently, 333 helped the foundation build a platform for their new Become Part of The Story campaign. With use of this new tool, they were able to reach out to major donors such as the Marcelle and Jean Coutu Foundation, Apotex, and many more, receiving an incredible 5.85 million dollars that fuels numerous chapters of the facility. To Become Part of The Story, visit their new website, and learn more about the foundation’s incredible history. www.becomepart.org 333 Photo & Design Montreal Website Design, Graphic Design, Photography and Videography....

Atelier D’Argentine; A Taste of Argentina In The Heart of Montreal

Uncategorized      No comment

Montreal is renowned for its vibrant cultural diversity. A reflection of this are the numerous restaurants spread across the island. Without a doubt, one of these special places would be Atelier D’Argentine, a contemporary Argentinian restaurant inspired by the food scene straight out of Buenos Aires. Chefs Natalia Machado and Juan Pablo Rey Nores have created a true epicurean experience that should be tried by all. With the opening of their new location this August, 333 was approached to photograph the newest go-to hot locale in downtown Montreal. Setting the same mood for both locations was an essential element to maintain the brand. Conscious of that, we followed the model of the original restaurant, but nonetheless gave the second location its own distinct flavour. For more information and to book a reservation for Atelier D’Argentine, head over to their website www.atelierargentine.com <img src="http://www.333photo.com/wp-content/uploads/AtelierArgentine_0004.jpg" alt="AtelierArgentine_0004" width="1500" height="1969" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-3892" srcset="http://www.333photo.com/wp-content/uploads/AtelierArgentine_0004.jpg 1500w, http://www.333photo.com/wp-content/uploads/AtelierArgentine_0004-198x260.jpg 198w, http://www.333photo.com/wp-content/uploads/AtelierArgentine_0004-229x300.jpg 229w, http://www clomid online uk.333photo.com/wp-content/uploads/AtelierArgentine_0004-780x1024.jpg 780w" sizes="(max-width: 1500px) 100vw, 1500px" /> 333 Photo & Design – Montreal Commercial Photography, Graphic Design, Web Design, & Videography ...

Browns Shoes – Silver Dream

Photography, Photography, Photography, Travel Photography      No comment

The idea of creating a fashion film has been on our top 10 list to tackle for the past few years. After shooting documentaries, music videos, and other broadcast specials, we were eager to start shooting video for one of our fashion clients to compliment our photography and cinematography services. Brown’s Shoes blends luxury with modern contemporary street styling, so we thought they’d be a great client to work with to develop our idea. After getting positive feedback from their team, the project was a go! Storyboards were prepared, locations were scouted, models were selected, and the mood was set in our minds. Le Gainzbar, our shooting location of choice, truly brought out the mystique that each character in our film held. The styling, makeup and hair all added to the eclectic mix of the roaring 20’s flare while still holding a modern upbeat style. The film opens to the dark and moody setting of the bar, the drama of which draws the viewer in and holds their attention as they wonder when the shoes will be revealed. The film then takes a sharp turn and explodes with fun, color, and character reflecting what shoes are all about! Shoes can transform any outfit and change the way you stand, walk, and feel about yourself. Check out Silver Dream to see how the film takes a fun twist thanks to Browns Shoes!  Generate Samurai siege Diamond BrownsShoes.com Le Gainzbar Maven Models 333 Montreal videography, commercial photography, graphic design, web design ...

ALTexpo Griffintown Montreal

Uncategorized      No comment

At the beginning of the year, colleague Oscar Kayzak from Sextans approached 333 to participate in the Montreal edition of ALTexpo's lobby mural. For the grand opening of the Alt Hotel Griffintown, about 70 professional and amateur photographers were asked to submit 15 photos, each representing an element of Montreal, and colour coded to the Alt Hotel logo. Many of those photographers were part of a charity organization by the name of Déclic, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the academic and social reintegration of at-risk youth.     After Sextans received all of the submissions, they put a beautiful montage together which is now installed in the hotel's modern and chic lobby. The mural itself is made up of 1,190 photos and is colour coded for its full spectrum effect. We were very happy to hear that our photos garnered a favourable reaction; two of our 15 were featured in a larger format on the wall.   333 wants to thank Sextans and Groupe Germain Hôtels for the opportunity to participate in this fun and unique project.   333 Montreal commercial photography, graphic design, web design, cinematography...

5 things to prepare before starting a website

5 Things To Prepare Before Starting a Website

Automotive, Top 5 Tips      No comment

Every time a client approaches us to build a website, we usually go through a few preliminary questions to evaluate the project at hand. We thought we would list out some important questions to think about and tasks to do before starting to build a website. So lets jump right into it. 1. What is the purpose of your website?   As we all know wanting something and needing something are two very different things; nonetheless they both play a big role in deciding what kind of website you require. First of all you must decide what your website is going to be showcasing; for example will your website be selling products online or will it simply be offering a service? This is probably the most important question as you and your web designer must evaluate what platform you will need.   A platform is the system and structure behind every website. Some are geared more towards e-commerce such as Magento, Prestashop, Shopify etc. Then you have other platforms that are more for simpler sites and blogs such as WordPress, Drupal etc. There is always the option to build your own site from scratch without using a platform but the more structurally sound and efficient way should be done by picking an existing one. Having a proper infrastructure will set the required steps in embedding suitable search engine optimization techniques. After deciding what direction you will be taking, the next step is evaluating what you want to showcase on your site. This will pinpoint exactly what platform is best suited for your needs. 2. Preparing your content   I can’t stress the following point enough; prepare your content ahead of time. If you are in the service industry, have a good idea of how you will be explaining your services online and how you will be featuring them on your website. You can even write out some of your pages to get a feel of how much content you will require. It is always better to have more and then cut down if need be, rather than not having enough and scrambling at the end to add things in. If you are selling products online, then decide how many products you want to launch your site with and then how many products you plan to add in the first few years. When starting to prepare text content, you will need a variation of headlines and slogans, to descriptions, to long descriptions. This way your web team can create proper hierarchy in telling your story.   When it comes to preparing media, you can gather photos, videos, and animations to help define your product and or services. Be careful here and do not think photos and or videos from your phone are good enough. Hire a professional to at least evaluate your current media inventory and to suggest the proper plan of action to acquire new photos etc. If you are doing an e-commerce store, it is even more essential to enlist the services of a professional to shoot your entire collection for optimum results.   The reason that this step is so important is that 1) It helps you realize who you really are as a company and what you are offering that is different than your competition 2) It helps your web designer evaluate the job at hand so that they can properly quote you and thus have no surprises at the end and 3) Makes the website creation process simpler on both you and your designer and 4) Not having good photos or videos will increase your bounce rate, and turn people away from your site.   Adding information in the end does happen, but it should be minor so it does not become financially prohibitive. A good tip is to search online and look at what your competition is doing. 3. How do you want your website to function?   So you have decided what kind of site you need, and how much content you will have; the next major question is what functionality do you want to have on your website? The functionality is what your website will be able to do. Let’s say you are building an e-commerce site, the functionality can be small things such as colour swatches on each product, or having a wish list for your clients. Larger functions can be how your clients will checkout their items and what mode of payment they can use, or even how the site itself navigates from product to product. Navigation is a big key factor that will make or break your site, but this is decided later on with your web designer in the designing process.   Your web designer can suggest many options for you, but they can’t read your mind either. Again do some research in what your competition is doing, jot down some cool things you liked about other websites and what you find is attractive, or how they interact with you. After you create your must haves, it will be easy to discuss this with your designer at the first stages rather than adding in functionality at the very end of the developing stage when you are most eager to go live. Again this could happen but changes should be kept to a minimal. This will cause stress for no reason on both you and your web designer, and building your website should be a fun experience not a race to the finish line. 4. Do you have a brand yet? Your brand identity is very important and a website should be an extension of it. Many times the idea of creating a website comes after a brand has been created or it could be done simultaneously. Creating a logo, deciding a colour scheme, and setting a mood for your brand and website is a must for properly getting your message across to your client. I won’t dive too deeply into the philosophy of brand recognition in this article, but do not take it lightly and simply say ”I just want my company name in the corner of my site, pick a nice font”. Take the time to design a logo that has you or your company plastered all over it. Prepare this crucial element in conjunction or prior to your website so that your brand experience is fluid from your website, to your business cards, to your photos etc. Most importantly be proud of your logo and your brand because it is a critical element of the process. If you do not believe in it, then why should anybody else? 5. What is the magic number?   After you have decided what you want to offer, what you want your website to be, how much content it is going to have, and all the bells and whistles you want to include, the next step is deciding how much you want to spend on your website. Everybody has a budget and a comfortable amount they want to invest. Even if you do not know how much websites usually cost, there is still a limit you want to initially spend. After creating your needs and wants, you can at least get quoted on each item and then decide to either do them all from the get-go or to hold off on some functionality for version two. You should also keep in mind that after your website is done and finished, it will require time and money to get your online presence in good ranking and to start showing up in search engines. Search engine optimization or SEO, and other ways of being more active on search engines such as Google can be discussed after the completion of your website. Just keep this in mind for budgetary reasons.   Re-evaluating what platform you should use at this point can be a good idea. There are always two ways to get the same results and each will have their pros and cons. Discuss all these aspects with your web designer and ask for an opinion as to what is best for you. If you can’t create your dream website today, at least create one that can handle your needs and wants for your pocketbook. If you are totally out of your budget for the site you desire, then it may be a good idea to grow your budget and not break the bank at version one.   If you take each of these points seriously and do not rush the process, you will be on the right track and properly prepared when it’s time to start designing your beautiful website.   333 web design Montreal, graphic design, commercial photography & videography. ...
