About The Alberta Egotist
The Alberta Egotist is an anonymously-run website featuring the best creative, the best talent and the best resources in Alberta – keeping it all in the greater context of what’s happening internationally. Our intent is to foster growth in this city, both professionally and conceptually.
In order to promote creative growth in Alberta, one must admit that our cities are conceptually stunted. It’s not on the tip of any tongues, and for good reason. Safe solutions, droll concepts. It is our belief, as creative participants in this province, that the opportunity for change lies at our feet and that it can happen by challenging one another, by holding each other accountable for our work, and by hiring and promoting local talent. This is our attempt to foster big ideas and radical thinking on a local level. To remind us all why we love this job. To promote the best work and ideas in Alberta. This is The Alberta Egotist, a means to an end.
A Message To Businesses
As decision makers on the client side and inside the agencies themselves, the choice to hire locally and demand good work is ours to make. By doing so, you’ll not only help elevate the city as a whole, you’ll help Alberta become a draw for new talent – continuing the cycle.
Just as we’re challenging Alberta’s creative community to step it up, we’re also extending a challenge to business owners. Before you take your next big campaign out of province, give a shop in Calgary or Edmonton a chance – if only to pitch. The expectation for great work has been set. Let them surprise you. With your help and trust, we’ll build Alberta into a creative and cultural Mecca.
We’re all about hiring the world’s best talent. But we’re all about hiring Alberta’s best talent first. It’s the challenge of agencies to uncover the photographers, illustrators, directors, writers, designers and visionaries in our town that will help make your work better every time they touch it. And then use them to raise the bar for the entire community.
