Universite de Saint-Boniface

The Client

Since its inception in 1818, Université de Saint-Boniface has been a pivotal point, a protector and a promoter of French life and culture. Today, its students come from countries around the world and its reputation for excellence has spread far beyond Canada’s borders.

The Challenge

  • Portray the story – the need to create a timeless concept to represent the past, present and future of the Université in a meaningful way
  • Physical environment – design must physically fit within a pre-defined space, and aesthetically fit within the heritage building in which it is located
  • Functionality – the need to recognize and refresh ongoing giving

The Solution

Design

  • Strong design theme that reflected branding & messaging the Donors were used to
  • Customization for each location to suit its environment
  • Use of photography to make a connection with the community
  • Changeable design to keep the system vibrant and meaningful
  • Incorporate powerful impact stories to motivate donations

Implementation

  • Designed within the space restraints to complement the environment
  • Careful selection of specific images and content for maximum impact
  • Centralized recognition system for cumulative gifts above a set threshold
  • Ability to refresh the Donor names and current/future events for years to come
  • Artistic flair to inspire viewers

The Verdict

“As we requested, the display respects the history of our institution yet, with its many layers of glass and wire, has a very modern flair. It is truly a work of art.”

“As pleased as we are with the end result, we were also very impressed with the Brook team, who took the project from a concept to a finished product. Their professionalism and attention to detail are the main reason it turned out so nicely. We particularly appreciated Brook’s excellent customer service…”
~ Louis St.-Cyr, Director of Development

The Université has since worked with Brook to develop and install several additional components to their recognition program.
