Tag Archive: initial contract

UI_logo_002After receiving my initial contract from Videotron, I began working with my brother David Lacopo, a digital artist, (who also designed this blog’s great banner) to design the initial corporate branding and website. This is where I came up with “BRIDGING THE GAPS” as our first tagline to describe the concept behind the company’s name, the contrast that exists between our Idealistic views and what we know as reality. Here are the results of our initial work.

UI_logo_002Since my line of credit was almost used up completely to build my initial infrastructure and the cash flow generated from my initial contract wasn’t enough to pay me a salary, I applied and was accepted by the CLD of Laval (The CLD is a non-profit organization subsidized by the Quebec government to promote economic development and entrepreneurship) to receive a compensation, equivalent to unemployment, for 1 year. In spite of the fact that the amount wasn’t a lot to begin with, it helped me significantly pay for my personal expenses during that vital first year.
