Empress Hotel wrapped up

Posted on: December 2nd, 2015

The Empress Hotel is in the process of being wrapped in a 46,000 square foot image we created for the Victoria landmark. The image is a composite of high resolution photos by Sama Jim Canzian and 3D renders by Kevin House. The wrap consists of 46 panels of mesh (each 100 feet high) which wrap around the front and sides of Sir Francis Rattenbury’s original 1908 building. Here are a few photos of the installation in progress. Restoration work is being done to the exterior between now and spring 2016. More photos and a case study of the creation of the gigantic image to follow.

The Seghers Collection, cover detail

We completed the first in a planned series of titles for University of Victoria Libraries Special Collections. The Seghers Collection: Old Books for a New World is an exploration of the books that belonged to Charles John Seghers (1839–1886), the second Roman Catholic bishop of Victoria. Seghers was a bibliophile who always carried books with him when he travelled, and he acquired a remarkable collection of ancient books in nine European languages. As Seghers told a friend, “a bishop without books is a soldier without arms.”

Renovating Web sites

Posted on: April 15th, 2013

If your Web site was built more than three years ago, it’s probably time to renovate. Web technologies are constantly changing and sites need to be adapted to different environments that didn’t exist just a few years back. Many older sites don’t play very well with smartphones and tablets (or even laptops). If you haven’t yet, you owe it to yourself to view your existing site on a tablet such as the iPad: you may be surprised to find important elements are not functioning, are displaying badly — even missing outright — due to software and/or hardware incompatibilities. If your site has Flash on it, no one on an iPhone or iPad can use that part of your site.
