The Story Through Design™

With roots that go back to 1998 for award-winning multi-platform campaigns for entertainment properties, and branches that extended through the 2000’s into immersive environments, games, mobile apps, and digital platforms, Switch United today is a Vancouver-based innovation company that incubates original IP. MindfulGarden Digital Health is the company’s focus as it seeks to apply the same digital technologies used in entertainment to now creating a clinically validated biofeedback platform that de-escalates agitation associated with delirium in clinical care – a $90B burden to hospitals in North America annually.

Canada In A Day

Switch United designed, built, and deployed the juggernaut that is Canada In A Day. Thousands of Canadians uploaded videos on September 10th as a snapshot of our nation made into a film that was aired on the CTV network for Canada’s 150th birthday.

Frontier

Frontier: Dark Providence is Discovery Channel’s immersive online experience that digs deeper into the backstories of the characters of Frontier TV series through six interconnected short vignettes.

Addiction

Addiction. The Next Step is an interactive guide based on proven therapy that puts help directly into the hands of those who need it most: families and loved ones of those battling substance use disorder.
