WE SPECIALIZE IN DOING THINGS
WE HAVE NEVER DONE BEFORE

That isn't to say that we have no experience with traditional print and digital design... just that we like to come up with new and innovative solutions to our client's problems. In fact we have over 35 years experience and passion for what we do, it's just that our approach to problems often leads to uncommon solutions. We partner with clients to help them succeed, which normally leads to long and productive relationships.

We are a creative agency based in Medicine Hat, about 3 hours east of Calgary, Alberta. We work with an exceptional range of clients, big and small, charitable and private sector, in Canada, the US, South America and Europe, who all have one thing in common... a desire to make a difference...

We've built our success by helping them do that.

Effective solutions that make a difference to your company, your audience and your bottom line, don't happen by chance. We follow time tested proven processes to achieve this and will guide you through every step... to ensure fully integrated and seamless deliverables.

So, if you want to try something you've never done before, give us a call...

WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE...
IN OUR WORK... IN OUR COMMUNITY...
AND IN OUR WORLD

We can help you make a difference in the way you view your business and your world,
and the way the world views your business




IF WE'RE NOT MAKING A DIFFERENCE
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?

We ask ourselves that regularly... we'll ask you too






DON'T GET US WRONG, WE DO TRADITIONAL TOO

Although we'd like to think it's a bit more than same old same old







NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION

To date december2nd designers have been awarded no fewer than 25 national and international awards for their work.
René also served as a juror for the CASE VIII Pacific Northwest & Western Canada Communication Awards,
an annual program recognizing excellence in marketing and communication



PRINCIPALS

"We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done"
from Kavanagh by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow... we agree...






RENÉ WATERS

René began his design career in the
UK before moving to Chicago where he worked for many of the top advertising, sales promotion and marketing agencies. In the 90s he moved to Montana where he started his own design company quickly establishing
it as the "go to" agency for innovative problem solving. In 1996 he moved to Canada working in Calgary and Medicine Hat, before founding december2nd in 2001.

The designers at december2nd are passionate about what they do, both
in the studio and in their personal lives. René's personal passion is restoring vintage Italian motorcycles. He is a published author on the subject, and his restorations have been featured in magazines and blogs around the world.




SUSAN WATERS

Susan is a nationally recognized illustrator and artist. Her work has appeared in a variety of media and publications both in Canada and the United States. She has undertaken assignments for clients as diverse as Defense Research Development Canada, the US Army Corps of Engineers, Police Point Park and the Charles M. Russell Wildlife Refuge in Montana.

Susan is also a musician, performing, composing and teaching in the community. She has both written music and performed on soundtracks and radio in Canada and the United States.

Other passions?... racing. In 2009 she attempted to set a motorcycle land speed record at the famed Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.




MORGAN EMMESS

Morgan studied design in Ontario before moving to Victoria BC where she specialized in design and copywriting
for web and social media. In 2007 she returned to Toronto and acquired a TESL certificate in order to pursue another dream... teaching in Mexico... returning in 2009 to join the SNAP Newspaper Group in Newmarket ON.
In 2010 she moved to Medicine Hat and began free-lancing for december2nd, writing, designing, and web developing, while also working in-house for a retail product development firm. There she was in charge of design and production of their annual catalogue and international life style magazine. In 2016 she joined december2nd full time.

Diving with sharks off Fiji gives a clue to one of her other great passions.

LOOK TO THE FUTURE

TAKE ACTION

Facebook

We love to meet and talk with people who are looking for
creative ways to solve their problems. We also love to come-up
with uncommon ways to solve those problems, and deliver outstanding ROI.

If that sounds interesting let's talk and see if together we can't
make a difference...
