In September 2017, PARTISANS was retained by Toronto Global to design and write the Toronto Region’s response to Amazon’s North American-wide RFP for a second global headquarters. 

Toronto Global is a not-for-profit organization funded by the federal, provincial, and municipal levels of government that supports and attracts foreign direct investment to the Toronto Region. They work with companies outside of Canada that have expansion plans to promote the opportunities of establishing a location in Toronto and the surrounding region. Toronto Global represents the cities of Toronto, Mississauga, and Brampton, and the Regional Municipalities of Durham, York, and Halton. For the purposes of this submission, they also partnered with Guelph and Kitchener-Waterloo. 
As the creative directors on the RFP submission, PARTISANS was responsible for the masterplanning, art direction, graphic design, data visualization, as well as the synthesis of data and research to produce the final written content for the book’s various sections.
