Innovation & collaboration in the BC Public Service

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Late in 2008 Kim Henderson, then the Web 2.0 visionary in the office of British Columbia's Deputy to the Premier, charged Rumon Carter and I to find new ways to leverage the power of Web 2.0 to help spark a new wave of innovation and collaboration in BC's Public Service. I was asked to research our options and develop the character, organizational and visual concepts behind what has become the professional networking intranet site SPARK! The project has gone on to become a national benchmark for professional networking within government as evidenced by the cover story above. Though I was a spark in the process, it was Rumon who was the flame that really ignited the project... congratulations Rumon!

If interested, you can read the cover story in Canadian Government Executive magazine: CLICK HERE

In addition to SPARK! I also designed a suite of online and print collateral to support the project. You can see a few samples by scrolling this blog to "Office of the Deputy to the Premier". RSD
