Rogers Communications Launches

Rogers is synonymous with Canadian communications. The uber-media company needed to showcase their portfolio of companies and products and take their first serious move online.

“The Interactive Bureau team has brought a tremendous amount of energy, engineering savvy, and organizational elegance to this web redesign… They have not only changed the way we are seen on the web, but also the way we see ourselves”
– Ronan McGrath, CIO of Rogers Communications Inc.



Client Bio

Canada’s largest media company; provides cable television, wireless communications, print, and radio to over 50 million customers.

Personal History

Coming home was fun, asking me to do this project was rhetorical. At this time Rogers had not made a concerted effort to go online as a singular brand. Efforts before this relied on the their various departments wants and expertise. IAB took it all online. And I mean we really took it online – the whole site (thousands of pages) was hand coded by myself and Jonathan Corum. A collective applause for CMS software please.
I have two favourite stories for this project. One: I met and made a very good (and highly talented) friend of mine, Jonathan Corum, and two: while on one of the top floors of the Scotia Bank tower one of my American co-workers peered outside the window and while looking at the CN Tower asked me if it was Toronto’s version of the ‘Space Needle’.


To re-brand, integrate and redefine Rogers’ future direction.
