Good Results

We have worked with Intent for the past four years and, in that time, it has become evident to us that they deliver the most creative and client-centred design this community has to offer.
Working together on a variety of projects, we have benefited from Intent’s experience in numerous sectors to help us deliver our message to our donors and the broader community at large. In addition it is clear to us that the Intent team takes pride in delivering high-quality, award-winning creative work that allows their clients to expand their reach and build their brand.

Peter Sweeney, President, St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation

We are proud to work in close and notable collaboration with Intent in order to effectively raise awareness about our capital campaign to rebuild Haven House. The Intent team is remarkable to work with. They are responsive, open to feedback, and went beyond in providing us with superior service. It continues to be a privilege to work with these awesome professionals.

Mary Zilney, CEO, Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region

In 2014 we celebrated the 25th anniversary of our International Youth Fellowship (IYF) Program, Intent designed a suite of communications materials to mark the occasion. Their approach was creative, skilled, and responsive to our needs. We are so happy with the visual identity developed, we have adopted it as a re-branding of the IYF as a whole, and continue working with Intent on ongoing communications projects.

Rosemary Quipp, Public Affairs Officer, Aga Khan Foundation Canada

From the very beginning, Intent demonstrated a clear grasp of our organization’s strengths and of our importance to the community. In fact, their creative exercises early in the re-branding process actually helped us to better understand ourselves; a true testament to Intent’s total immersion into their client’s world. It’s from their obvious enthusiasm for the library however that I know we are more than just clients. Intent are on our team now. And their passion is infectious.

Sonia Lewis, (Retired) Chief Executive Officer, Kitchener Public Library

I have engaged Intent as our marketing communications partner on several initiatives including annual reports, internal campaigns, branding projects and am always impressed by their creativity, responsiveness, and true passion for delivering a product that aligns with my communication objectives. Working with the team at Intent is a true delight. Their award-winning work is exceptional, their support invaluable, and they make every project a pleasure to work on, and something I am proud to take to my executive team.

Victoria Raab, Director of Communications, City of Kitchener
