With a slate of “municipal elections scheduled for late October”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alberta_municipal_elections,_2013, upstart candidates and sitting council members across Alberta are gearing up for an intense fall campaign season. With that comes the task of putting together a campaign team, beginning the process of raising funds and also crafting a campaign brand and marketing material.

I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but when talking about the advancements in campaign technology and design one cannot underestimate how much “Barack Obama’s campaign team has brought to the industry”:http://www.barackobama.com/. Whether it was the revolutionary techniques and concise planning employed by the campaign team in 2008 or the “impressive data-driven objectives set out by the 2012 re-election team”:http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2012/11/when-the-nerds-go-marching-in/265325/. Either way the ground work laid out by _The Obama campaign machines_ in both elections has ushered in a new era within the political world and has essentially set the standard for the importance of a candidate’s online presence.

This week’s edition of *Nine-Banded* looks at three of Team Armadillo’s side passions.

Getting on The Campaign Trail With TroyWason.ca

Early last week, Team Armadillo was more than happy to launch the official campaign web site for our good friend Troy Wason.

Troy Wason VP For YYC

Troy is seeking the Calgary Vice President position for the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta. As a great friend of the company, we were more than willing to help his campaign team create a unique web site that would reflect Troy’s progressive and forward thinking philosophy. Using a combination of web fonts and the campaign’s minimalistic branding, we set about to create a site that would provide a clear and direct message to potential voters. As usual, this WordPress powered web site also showcases the campaign’s social media elements, while also allowing the campaign team to keep potential supports abreast of the latest events through the intuitive Content Management System.

We here at Armadillo Studios want to wish Troy all the best on the campaign trail and are excited to add TroyWason.ca to our growing portfolio of political campaign web sites.
