Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission

The Situation

The Thompson Okanagan is more than just a picturesque valley in Southern BC. It is home to 28% of BC’s total farms and its environment is optimal for important agricultural production. The Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission worked hard to create a comprehensive resource - the Central Okanagan Economic Profile for Agriculture - to provide the public information regarding the extensive impact agriculture can and does have on Thompson Okanagan.

Tracey Fredrickson, the writer of the Central Okanagan Economic Profile for Agriculture, needed a design firm capable of turning what would normally be a rather mundane looking document into a more memorable experience. The design needed to flow cohesively and resonate with her scientific, yet engaging, writing style in order to capture the reader.

The Solution

Cheeky Monkey Media was proud to be selected as the graphic designers of choice for the Central Okanagan Economic Profile report. The gorgeous Thompson Okanagan is the beautiful place we are lucky to call home, and this opportunity was one we could not pass up.

The inspired design revolved around the rich Okanagan agricultural community. Featuring images of local farmers, gorgeous landscapes, and the extensive agricultural history of the Okanagan, the report was brought to life. Utilizing visual charts and graphs, the Monkeys were able to visually reiterate the well researched statistical information laid out in the report. We worked hard to drive home the importance of the information by transforming the report into an easily digestible, and visually appealing document. We want to give Tracey Fredrickson a much-deserved shout out. Her writing was both inspirational and informative, allowing us to see the immense agricultural potential the Okanagan - our home - has.

Spread

In the year since the Economic Profile for Agriculture has been in circulation, we have had a great deal of positive feedback on this document’s format and content.  These comments come from industry stakeholder groups that provide programs and services to the agricultural sector to agricultural landowners looking for information.  It was a team effort with Chris Arlidge at Cheeky Monkey to develop a document that was user-friendly and easy to use - ultimately this encourages people to access key information early in their research into owning agricultural land in the Central Okanagan.  Mission accomplished!
