How We Think.About

We're a friendly bunch here at Morningstar. Our approach is to work collaboratively with partners in the private, public, and non-profit sectors that share a common goal. We believe that by harnessing everyone's unique strengths, we're able to accomplish so much more on a budget that's so much less. We combine expertise in digital media and education with a 20 year track record of successfully building strong partnerships. Some of our notable projects include:

  • Stakeholder coordination and partner recruitment for MindFuel's Wonderville 2.0 pilot project.
  • Collaboration with Nelson Education to create mobile-friendly educational resources.
  • Ten years of marketing campaigns for the FortisBC PowerSense Campaign.
  • Development of interactive media tools for the University of British Columbia.
  • Development of the Disseminate iPad app. Disseminate is a tool which allows users to enrich presentations by sharing slides, documents, videos and interactive media with a group of people using tablets, even while offline. Ideal for corporate training, classroom use or sales, Disseminate provides a fully interactive experience where audience members can use their tablets to answer the presenter's questions, submit comments, or even draw a picture.
  • Interactive digital games for non-major Biology students for Cengage..
  • Coordination of Canada's Centennial of Flight Campaign, a national public outreach educational initiative.
  • Management of the Get to Know Program from 1999-2009. Get to Know is a highly successful international youth environmental education program, and our responsibilities included: web & media design, stakeholder coordination, educational resource development, event planning, and administration.

What We Do.Services

We know that a connected community is the best way of achieving positive environmental and social change. But connecting a community is no simple task. One cannot simply run up to a group of people and yell: "Connect!" (Not that we've tried…) We've found that the best way of doing so is through creative media design, app development, and project management.

Games & Gamification


We make Fun games. We make Serious Games. We make seriously fun games. We are Gamification experts with a proven track record of delivering on time and on budget. Bring us your ideas - we make them into reality. Working with us, you can offload the design, configuration and implementation of your idea and focus on growing your business. We're a full service shop so you don't have to be.

Web & Application Development


We can develop mobile and web apps on any platform excluding wooden ones, which don't seem to respond to our code. We've developed customized CMS, cross-platform mobile apps, analytics tools, social media-enabled galleries, virtual tours and innovative educational games and gamification tools.

Design


Looking for an addictive game that keeps users coming back? Need web design that is both responsive and highly attractive? Want an animated video starring a cute bespectacled talking animal? We can do all of that and more.

Project Management


After nearly 20 years of experience and a boatload of doggedness, we've become experts in non-profit partnership development, stakeholder coordination, fundraising and grantwriting, and consulting. From 1999 to 2009 we managed all facets of the Get to Know Program, growing this non-profit from a small environmental education coalition to a North America-wide leader in engaging youth with the outdoors. Morningstar also coordinated the recruitment of school districts in the U.S. and Canada to participate in a pliot of the expanded and updated Wonderville science education resource.
