Who made this?
IMAASource has been developed by several people over the past few years & maintained by IMAA staff. The website was developed by desiring productions, and the original content consulting was conducted by Pierre Beaudoin. The category icons are were developed by Lisa Theriault, inspired by “Policy”, “Employee Benefits”, “Profit”, “Consumer Behaviour”, “Digital Marketing”, “Documents Drawer”, “Projected Growth” and “Affiliates” by Eucalyp from The Noun Project, used under CC by 3.0 . The banner on the homepage is a derivative of “Geometric pattern with lines and dots” by vilmosvarga.
We thank the Canada Council for the Arts for their generous support in making this project possible.
