We originally met the folks running the Economic Development department back in 2002 when we participated in the Bay Area Leadership Program hosted by Volunteer Hamilton. After a year on course together and a lot of meetings about ways to promote the downtown core and development in the city as a whole, we began to work with Economic Development, Tourism Hamilton and Public Works to put some of our collective ideas into action.
Banko Media built the first online image library for the City of Hamilton with over 5,000 images celebrating what it meant to work, live and play in Hamilton. Over the years, in partnership with a variety of agencies, we have worked on annual reports, brochures, websites and advertising from big box to broadcast.
In 2013, Banko Media became the agency and photography studio of record for Economic Development. This eliminated some of the steps and lag time for content creation in what has become an increasingly fast paced environment with lead times of just days, sometimes just hours.
Banko Media is proud to be a partner in promoting our community. In 2015 we were recognized with an Economic Development Association of Canada award for best advertisement for our work in promoting Hamilton’s expanding food processing sector.
