The Challenge

A group on Salt Spring Island wished to increase property taxes just slightly in order to fund a collaborative approach to watershed management, but needed first to gather input from the citizenry.

Our Left-Handed Solution

We helped formulate an illustrated feedback invitation that could be featured on posters, published in local newspapers, displayed on the organization’s website, and shared on social media. We took care, in doing so, to ensure that the messaging was not only informative, but also positive and persuasive.

The Outcome

The product we delivered was a success even prior to distribution, in that it prompted responses that it was intended to solicit. An elected official asked to comment on the piece praised its lighthearted tone , suggesting that it was effective without being alarmist.
