With the exception of the card on the top right, this is one of the first series of QuickChange Payphone cards which featured Manitoba Wildflowers. It was a beautiful series created by the Palmer Jarvis Ad Agency for MTS back in 1999. The QuickChange Payphone card featuring the Winnipeg skyline was used in another series. Today phone cards are generic and lack any creativity or sense of place.
I do work for a living! But it's great when your work is also fun! I almost always shoot for myself and then I think of markets for the images ... or the markets find me! It had been a while since I worked with this client. I illustrated their telephone directories for a few years when directories were in vogue - I believe I worked with Palmer Jarvis Advertising Agency (Winnipeg) and Cossette Communications (Vancouver) on those projects back at the turn of the century! My images were also used on some of their first sets of phone cards!
Today I re-launched my website Grandmaison Photography at www.grandmaison.mb.ca I have always liked the ‘look and feel’ of this site but it was ten years old. Because good design transcends time, I kept the ‘look and feel’ of the site but modernized it to accommodate slightly larger images as well as to be mobile friendly. Thank you Scott Parfitt at Smallbox for modernizing the site and to Rob Peters and Adrian Shum (formerly of Circle Design) for the original design.
