Northern Communications Re-Branding of Alternative Answers

In October of 2013, Northern Communications acquired Alternative Answers of Bolton, ON. Alternative Answers is a call answer and messaging service company with its primary focus on Crime Stoppers Tip lines around the world. The transition has been steadfast and it was finally time for Northern Communications to take full ownership of it's branding to coincide with the business model we have developed for this new addition to the Northern Communications family of businesses.

We held a logo contest for the new face design of Alternative Answers in August, 2014. On September 1, 2014 we awarded Nick Brouillard, an 18 year old first year Laurentian University student, a prize of $250 for creating the winning logo design. Nick took the ideology of Alternative Answers and built a logo and mini-branding guide for use of the design in the future and created what is now, the new Alternative Answers brand.

We extend both our congratulations and appreciation to this young man and wish him the best in his upcoming endeavors.

Congratulations Nick!

Here is the new face of Alternative Answers!

Kamloops Crime Stoppers Conference

The BC Crime Stoppers Association became a reality in 1994 as the provincial voice for the 43 member programs across the province. As the first programs formed in 1982 and the numbers grew in the following decades the provincial association became a necessity and then a reality.

The BC Conference was held in May 2014 in Kamloops BC. Shannon and Mike and Donna attended. We were able to present at this conference and had some great face to face conversations with our CrimeStoppers clients.
