Malek Eid

Senior VP Corporate Development / Mikisew Group

The Trait team has worked alongside Mikisew Group and our various wholly owned, majority-owned and investment entities for nearly four years. We feel like Trait is an extension of our Mikisew Group team and they are always willing and able to support. A quick email or phone call away, they support us on a weekly basis with everything from brand development of new initiatives to press releases, feature stories, custom websites, social media and everything in between. We greatly appreciate the team environment that has developed and the benefit that comes with a team who takes the time to understand our businesses and provide strategic solutions.

Trait Marketing, using ideas and feedback from our students, Elders and families, created a logo that truly showcases the spirit and power of our independent schooling system: Fort Chipewyan Community High School.


Adam Winter

Sales Representative / Prairie Post Frame

Working with Trait Marketing has been a positive experience and an asset to our Facebook presence. With consistent and professional-looking posts, we have seen an increase in followers and inquiries looking for building quotes who have seen us online. We also have recently been looking to upgrade our tradeshow displays and with help from Trait, the quoting, design and ordering process was extremely efficient and painless. I would highly recommend them for all your marketing needs.

CEO / Creekline

The Trait team brought to life the vision we have for our business and the sophistication of our work into a powerful and modern brand, while showcasing our heritage and more than 40 years’ experience. We now have a brand, website and marketing materials that we are proud of, that truly represent our culture, values and services.



Office Administration / Kirk's Heating & Custom Sheet Metal

"Beautiful, professional and easy-to-use website” were our requests when we started working with Trait. Not only did they over-deliver on our request, they also took the time to fully understand our company and what we offer. The result was a website that showcases everything we offer without overwhelming our potential customers. We waited a long time to invest in a website because we wanted it done right. We are very pleased with the final product and all the hard work that Trait did to make it a reality.


Dave Czibere

CEO / CP Services

Working with Trait has resulted in incredible outcomes. Trait created a new, exciting and professional brand for CP Services. Amanda listened to us and crafted a message that truly captured the essence of our business, coming up with effective solutions that communicate our new message to a wide range of potential customers, employees and the general public. Having Trait as part of our team is like having an in-house marketing department without all the headaches. We are very grateful to everyone at Trait for helping our business grow.

Working with Trait has been a very positive experience. They provided great suggestions for updating our website and have been very responsive to any changes we have asked for. They’ve been willing to work with any crazy request we’ve made and have patiently answered the hundreds of questions we ask.

Working with Trait over the past five years has been a welcome support as it has made our website, events and surveys an excellent resource. I would recommend Amanda and her team at Trait to all organizations.


Matthew Michetti

Operations Manager / Alpha

Tremendous service and intuitive support. I want to take a moment to thank Trait for all you do for Alpha! Your creativity in translating our company vision into a brand and then leading the development of our website and social media presence has made what initially seemed a daunting task exciting and relevant. We appreciate Trait’s broad capacity to handle all our marketing needs and sublime accommodation to mentor and train staff as they grow into new roles and use the platforms that you’ve built. Moreover, we appreciate your manner and personal ownership of these tasks that are so critical to our new venture and appreciate Trait as a partner in our successful future.


Beverly Plett

Owner / Blinds & Designs

Trait helped me rebrand my business. I really didn’t know what to expect as I had never done anything like it before. I am very happy to say that it has been an excellent experience. The entire team was great to work with. The quality of their work, advice, effort understanding my business and helpfulness was fantastic not to mention that it has really given me a new enthusiasm for the business.


Nancy Clauson

Owner / Divine Finds

Trait was recommended to me by a close friend who had used their services to set up her business website. After meeting Amanda, I knew right away that she was the perfect fit for my business. Her knowledge and patience were deeply appreciated, and her vision for my business far exceeded my expectations, creating a much better version than I had planned. I cannot thank Trait enough for their guidance and willingness — and for always being available for my endless questions.


Roni-Sue Moran

Owner / Flux

I had the pleasure of working with Trait to rebrand a promising oil sands business group, revamp our website and marketing materials, execute impactful industry events, and tell our story as a leading site service provider. During that time, Trait worked closely with us to ensure the rebranding elevated our reputation and expertise. Along the way, our name became recognized as the contractor of choice.

This great work prompted me to recommend Trait to other professionals, and I later hired the team to develop the brand for my own company. Whether your organization is big or small, Trait can identify touch points to build a stronger marketing plan for you.


Holly Nicoll

Owner / Holly Nicoll Photography

Trait developed a unique brand for my photography business by creating a logo and brand story that represents myself and what I’m striving to accomplish with my small business. Trait then took that vision and together we developed a comprehensive website that showcases my work as a photographer along with a user-friendly experience. The branding and promotional pieces have helped elevate my exposure and business opportunities. They have been quick to troubleshoot issues and recommend solutions all along the way.

Director of Education and Principal / Mikisew Cree First Nation

Trait Marketing took our Mikisew Cree First Nation member Jessica V. Powder’s art to a new level. Her art was transposed into a colouring book with Cree and American Sign Language translations. The art stands alone or can be personalized with one’s own colouring. The book is brilliant and it’s with pride in Jessica as an artist and our school that Mikisew Cree First Nation distributes the book.
