Bob Rumball Canadian Centre of Excellence for the Deaf

BACKGROUND

“Our message is a simple one. “Make a difference in someone’s life by making tomorrow better than today”. Our services to our community began in 1956 in the lobby of the Evangelical Church of the Deaf on Wellesley Street and that desire to make a difference is just as strong now as it was then.  We are not done. As we reach out across the country we will overcome many challenges and break through countless obstacles. We will meet the needs of those we serve. One person at a time, one life at time.”

— Derek Rumball, President
Bob Rumball Canadian Centre of Excellence for the Deaf

Mission: To provide care and opportunities in a communication-rich environment that enhances the quality of life of those we serve.

Things we worked on:

WEBSITE, ACCESSIBILITY

Website

So it’s been a month since we’ve launched the very beautiful website that you have designed for us.  We have heard nothing but positive feedback from everyone.  In fact, a couple of the agencies that came to our launch were so impressed that they said when they’re ready to redesign, they will want to use you guys J

One little story that I’d like to share with you, and I hope you will not find it offensive, and hopefully be able to help you in winning many more contracts down the road:

As you remember from the RFP phase of our web project, we have solicited different designers/agencies for a formal proposal, and each of the committee members has reviewed every submitted proposal thoroughly.  Despite the fact that I personally felt some good vibes with the proposal, feeling that your team was very, for the lack of a better term, ‘user-friendly’; the general consensus from the whole committee was that the proposal did not directly touch on our requirements stated in our RFP.  In fact, you guys were almost not considered for an interview, it wasn’t until one of the committee members stated that everyone has come so far and so close and that we should keep an open mind, and an additional 30-45 minutes of interview time should not be a reason to ‘close the door’ on a team that, although didn’t provide a proposal that addressed our concerns, has given us ‘intangible good vibes’.  Once we had you guys in for the presentation, the committee was unanimously impressed, Chad had touched on every single point we were concerned about.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

Thank you again, Rhubarb team, for the awesome site.  I definitely will not hesitate to recommend you guys!

Best wishes,
Fred on behalf of the Rumball Organizations

Pastor Pixel: Church Design

Pastor Pixel: Church Design

As a new church in a highly creative community, we understand the importance of good design. Pastor Pixel has helped us with sermon series branding, signage, banners, space design, invitations, and more. I’ve worked with both volunteers and professionals before, but Pastor Pixel stands above them all. They do great work and have a passion for the message we’re communicating. Highly recommended.

BACKGROUND

Prior to launching Rhubarb Media and Pastor Pixel, Chad Ballantyne was a pastor for 15 years.  He understands the heartbeat of the modern church. Many churches are offended when asked about “marketing” their church, but they need not be.   The goal is being authentic and effective. So as a church, ask yourself, “Do we want to get better?”  Pastor Pixel has been helping churches since 2000 to be better at sharing it’s message to both it’s congregation and to the community it serves.  And it’s not just Chad.  We have  great designers and web developers all forming the Pastor Pixel team!

Things we worked on:

BRANDING, ILLUSTRATION, TRADESHOW BANNERS/BOOTHS, PRINT DESIGN, VIDEOGRAPHY, PHOTO MANIPULATION, WEB DESIGN, MARKETING, & SOCIAL MEDIA.

You tied everything together beautifully. You were able to pull out the personality of our campaign by just listening to stories and our hearts.
It’s hard to explain but you were able to show the “need” of our campaign without actually focusing on it.

The second part of our campaign was the need for “branding”, as well as a website, marketing material, brochure etc.
Again, we ended up with a refreshing complete package.  In short, the Pastor Pixel team was extremely professional, with an attention to detail and the uncanny ability to pull everything together within an extremely tight timeframe.

PIVX

PIVX

BACKGROUND

PIVX was our entry into the crypto-currency community. PIVX stands for Private Instant Verification Transaction.

PIVX is a form of digital online money using blockchain technology that can be easily transferred all around the world in a blink of an eye with nearly non-existent transaction fees with market-leading security & privacy.

Rhubarb got involved in December 2016 to rename and rebrand Darknet to PIVX. PIVX went from a market capitalization of $400,000 USD to an ‘all-time high’ of $764,000,000 USD in 10 months of marketing.

Things we worked on:

NAMING, BRANDING, TRADESHOW BANNERS/BOOTHS, PRINT DESIGN, VIDEOGRAPHY, PHOTO MANIPULATION, WEB DESIGN, MARKETING, & SOCIAL MEDIA.

Website

“The first thing I noticed about PIVX was the fun, and creative feel that translates through the marketing and media. Rhubarb’s work creates the tangibility to PIVX’s strong and unified community in a way that continues to inspire new people to become passionate Pivians.”

“The marketing and branding with PIVX and Rhubarb Media are next to none. When PIVX brought me on as part of the team, the branding, marketing, and community were some of the key points of interest for me. The creativity of the graphics, the message behind everything they do and top notch brand awareness are amazing. Rhubarb is great, with world-class vision and industry-leading results.”

Kempenfelt Community Players

Background

Kempenfelt Community Players is an incredible organization. Working with KCP, we bring to the audience, an immersive and moving experience. We create branding, print production, and illustration work for each musical/play.

Things we worked on:

Website

From the time Chad Ballantyne opened Rhubarb Media in 2006, his company has been one of the most active and creative supporters of Cultural Development in Barrie. I have had the pleasure of working with Chad and his artistic team since they began moulding and re-shaping Kempenfelt Community Players’ image in all pieces of print work. Over the last 9 years Rhubarb Media has provided in-kind work to produce Season Subscriptions, posters, flyers, banners, a new logo, and beautiful theatre programs that improve our image and achieve a professional look that we could never manage on our own. But this is just a fraction of the support that Rhubarb Media provides to the Cultural growth in Barrie.

In my opinion, the in-kind support demonstrated by Rhubarb Media is one-of-a-kind in the city of Barrie (exceeding 100K and growing!). As owner, Chad is a person who lives and acts on his beliefs that culture is the heart to any city. If there is a meeting about cultural growth in Barrie, I can guarantee that he is there. If there is a council meeting where cultural spending is going to be discussed, you’ll find him there.

Chad is a person who acts on his values; he is generous with his time and talents supporting other groups who can then better share their artistic works.
