The Western Ontario chapter would like to congratulate Brother Brett Channer ’86 and his agency Red Lion on a recent article published on MarketingMag.ca. He along with his team enabled a Jenn-Air print ad with Blippar, Blippar a free download for Android, BlackBerry and iOS brings an augmented reality experience right to a users mobile device.
Can’t say we are surprised to see a Brother shaking things up, Red Lion is the first agency in Canada to use this technology.
