Talons of Venice Riedle Urban Spaces

2 new guys, awards, an app & Real Houses

April 15, 2015

It’s April and this means a couple of things: the snow banks are finally melting in Saint John, the sun continues to shine in California, and we’re due to share some news. 

Beefing up our creative team

We’re happy to announce that two more creative powerhouses have joined our team. Russell Fougere recently joined as Digital Art Director. And Anthony Stuart recently returned from his two-year “sabbatical” to take on the role of Creative Director. Two Saint John guys with world-class talent. They have already been busy putting their digital chops and creative cool to work for our clients. 


Each year, we nominate client work for some national and international marketing awards. Every so often, the judges rule in our favour. This year, we are happy to have helped the following clients bring home some hardware: Enterprise Saint John (MarCom Gold Award) Juniper Farms, (Summit International Innovator Award) J.D. Irving, Limited (MarCom Platinum Award) and Shaping Purpose (MarCom Gold Award). Better yet, we are helping them to achieve their business goals, and for that we say ‘thank you.’ 

Need help planning your spring getaway?

This time of year, some lucky folks take a hiatus from the shoveling and venture south in search of sunshine. We’ve got an app for that: the Saint John Airport’s new “Pack & Fly” mobile app. We partnered with the Airport to invest in the development of this app, to help provide their passengers even greater value. If you’re after real-time arrivals and departures info, ground transportation options or tips on what to pack, the app’s got you covered. For free. 

Talons of Venice & a vision of growth

Revolution’s content creation arm, Talons of Venice, is just about set to air its first TV show featuring cool houses, after months of filming in locations across North America. We started in Saint John, before heading over to Halifax, down to New York, California and Texas, and back up to Canada’s west coast. Twenty episodes will air on a major Canadian broadcaster this summer. And we’re not stopping there. Our distributer CCI Entertainment recently partnered with the Fremantle Corporation to spread our reach globally. It’s all part of our vision of growth through creative product development. And we’re grateful for our partners’ support along the way.

Just wait ‘til you see what we’re cooking up next.

As always, we love hearing from you. If you have questions, feedback or updates of your own, please get in touch.
