• Evans Hunt makes parking less painful.

    Hate parking downtown? Well, this might make it a bit less painful.

    Working for the Calgary Downtown Association, the Evans Hunt Group launched a mobile-friendly site that'll make finding parking in downtown Calgary easy.

    The parking.downtowncalgary.com site pulls in live data from Calgary Parking to show the number of available spots in their lots and estimated street parking availability. The site also pin-points third-party lots.

    The tool finds parking near your current location, or helps you find parking at an address you're going to.

    And hey - parking downtown on evenings and weekends is easy, so get your butt downtown and have some fun.

The company’s mission is “the pursuit of happiness” because they seek to create endless opportunities for guests to “have their minds blown wide open” by experiencing life off the beaten path with a group of people destined to become the closest of friends.

    Free & Easy chose Cult because they saw them as an organization that can help make great companies even better.

  • #Drygoodsyyc - Advertising and marketing help for small businesses in Calgary

    / Comments (0)

    #drygoodsyyc is a marketing and advertising collective donating services and media to businesses affected by the flood in Calgary.

    From their website, drygoods.ca:

    The failure rate of small businesses following a disaster is 40-80%. That's mind-blowing. Owners face lost revenue, building repair costs and the price of lost inventory. Few have the resources to cover both the revenue shortfall and the costs to rebuild.

    Follow them on Twitter and lend a hand.
