Digital Main Street (DMS), led by the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) and the Ontario Business Improvement Area Association, is an initiative focused on helping small and medium-sized businesses in the retail, hospitality, and trade/service sectors to adopt digital business models.
In partnership with Communitech, I was part of a 'Transformation Team' in their new Future Proofing businesses’ program to the DMS initiative which helped firms to leverage e-commerce solutions and adapt their businesses to become more resilient and competitive as the economy recovers due to COVID-19. I was responsible for graphic design work in a team of five that also included a UX/UI designer, copywriter and 2 digital marketers. In collaboration with my team, we provided specialized and in-depth digital transformation services and support that helped struggling businesses adapt to changes in their respective sector in sprints lasting up to six weeks. Our transformation plans helped businesses create new business models, develop and implement digital marketing strategies, maximize digital tools and more.

The Olivar Corp
The Olivar Corp is an independently run business owned and operated by Dolores Smith. They specialize in offering authentic, premium and unique extra virgin olive oils and reserve vinegars throughout Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and the GTA.
From the beginning, Dolores wanted to establish a stronger digital presence to not only promote her products but to educate consumers about the purity and benefits of authentic olive oil. With a hard-to-access existing website, little social media presence and branding, we started to recognize how we could help Dolores achieve her goals.
