Child Guardian Youtube Channel Goes Viral

child-guardian-ytThroughout the years of 2011 and 2012, Blue Ocean Interactive decided to expand it's services and get into the mobile app development industry. We went on to develop new ideas and strategies of what our first app should be and we ended up choosing to go with the idea of Child Guardian; an app that would help parents alert their friends, family, and the Child Guardian Network if their child or loved one went missing. Learn more about our Child Guardian App here.

During the development process of the Child Guardian app, Blue Ocean began to build an online marketing strategy to promote the new app and one of the ideas that came up was to create a Youtube channel that would showcase videos meant to entertain the children of the Child Guardian Network. This idea lead to the creation of children related 'mashup' songs as well as classic children's stories being read while following the illustrations within the book.

The Great Flood of 2013

abfloodOur building is the one you see circled. This was on June 19th, 2013, at the highest point of the flooding.

On June 18th, 2013, the downtown core of Calgary, Alberta, became a flood zone. Everyone in the downtown core along with 25 other communities near the Elbow and Bow rivers were evacuated. Most evacuated people, including our office, were not allowed back until June 29th, 2013.

Our office was without power for 9 straight days and we were not allowed to access the building during that time. Being on the top floor of the building, we were extremely fortunate that our office was not actually damaged by the flood.

Our thoughts go out to all of the residents of Calgary and Southern Alberta, including many of our clients, colleagues and friends who have been dealing with the devastation left by the flooding.
