"Impello's Plutonium administrative tool has allowed our website to grow with the needs of our ratepayers and organization, and to evolve along with emerging social media platforms. Since our website redevelopment in 2008, we have received a great deal of complimentary public feedback regarding the clean and professional look of our website, the depth of information included within, and the innovative ways in which we've incorporated features such as the Rural Neighbourhood map, Twitter, Google Earth and our Straight Talk blog. As Alberta municipal government websites are concerned, we believe mountainviewcounty.com is second to none, and for that we can thank Impello."

Online. social media, new media, web two-point-oh, the blogo-sphere, interactive presentation... no matter how it's referred to these days everyone knows it's all about going digital. In a relatively short period of time, the world wide web has grown to become the 8000 lb gorilla of the communications world - and this time, it's here to stay.

Making websites, presentations and anything else that will be displayed onscreen look great is just one part of the job. To be truly effective, the design of your digital media must be a consistent and integrated part of a bigger brand picture - whether that's your website, a corporate presentation or online advertising banners.
