Founded in 2007, VERTIKA has become a leader in Quebec and Eastern Canada in working at heights and in confined spaces. The firm employs skilled rope access technicians—which many like to call Spidermen.

The company is known for its expertise and experience with various issues related to high-risk jobs. Major contractors turn to VERTIKA’s engineers and technicians for assistance with structural and building facade inspections, active and passive fall-arrest systems, and specialized occupational health and safety matters related to working at heights and rope access.

Goal: VERTIKA wanted to increase its visibility, particularly online. They chose H2O Communication to develop their brand image and graphic standards, and to revamp their website. We were also asked to design various communications tools for VERTIKA, including stationery, posters and a newsletter.
