The Innovation Centre

Step into forward-thinking development.

The Innovation Centre is cutting-edge and eye-catching. We wanted the website to tell the story of the building while inspiring the community to join the fun.

The Innovation Centre is the Okanagan’s hub of tech, entrepreneurship and creativity.

Located in Kelowna’s downtown, you’ll find seven floors of businesses committed to forward thinkers. We’ve been working with the Innovation Centre since we moved our office into the building. They requested a new website to showcase the state-of-the-art building that we call home. With new business opportunities, events and available offices to rent, the Innovation Centre’s website needs to sell the space. The new website tells the story of the building and the businesses within it while inspiring the community to think non-linear thoughts.

Website

Innovative design. In architecture and digital.

To create a timeless website, our team used the building itself as inspiration. Clean, contemporary, and easy to navigate with a lot of white space.

Influenced by Google, Apple and Pixar, Kelowna’s tech hub was purposefully built with a striking staircase. This encourages creative collisions. And a lot of sore legs! When you walk inside the Innovation Centre, it feels like you belong. We made sure website users felt that way too.

The website showcases the wide array of local companies in the building. From start-ups to companies being invested in by Jay-z. By crafting informative content and creating a custom coded business directory, the design allows visitors to get an insider’s view. It also creates the desire to encounter a creative collision of their own.

Technical Development

Digital booking for a physical space.

Booking events online used to be tedious. We made it simple with a short form on the Innovation Centre’s website. Users are able to fill out the form and receive an availability email back within two business days.

If someone is looking to attend an event, they can check out the website’s event calendar, click on an event, and get directed to the ticket information. This calendar was developed with ease and simplicity in mind. Both for the user and the Innovation Centre team inputting the event information.

Community events at the touch of a button.

We partnered with Twirling Umbrellas to create a modern, user-friendly website that accurately reflects the brand of the Innovation Centre. Their team was great to work with and they delivered on every request, including building a business directory and custom event calendar.

They completed the project with attention to detail and thoughtfulness, and ultimately created a design that represents the spirit of the Innovation Centre.

Final Thoughts

Local innovation is our heartbeat.

The Kelowna Innovation Centre’s mission is to foster community through innovation. With Kelowna growing in the tech sector, this space has become known for where the next tech businesses will be built. The Innovation Centre has the ability, drive and digital assets to level up tech in Kelowna.

Our experienced team of designers, developers, marketers and writers knows a thing or five about tech. We have worked with a number of tech companies, including Trellis, an Okanagan-based charity start-up located in the Innovation Centre.

As a member of Accelerate Okanagan within the Innovation Centre, we are dedicated to delivering innovative, custom websites for tech companies within the building and beyond.
