I can rely utterly on Susan’s attention to detail. She does not drop balls. We collaborated on a coffee table book for Crankworx’ 10th anniversary project. Thanks to her commitment to quality, attention to detail, marvelous project management skills, the project was a huge success - a beautifully realized hardcover book, with no shortcuts or compromises. From conception to completion, the project ran off the side of our desks, with many 2am emails, for an intense 2 months. The design and aesthetic was outstanding. She led a photo shoot and portrait/commission project for the book, which highlighted the role of several of the key players in the event’s history. This could have been a political minefield, but thanks to her relationships, calm, and grace, it was incredibly successful and smooth sailing. (The photographer hired for the project was subsequently commissioned to do portraits of the Vancouver Canucks.) As part of the content development for the book, Susan wrangled input from 20 different photographers from around the world, making sure every caption and credit was in place. She also oversaw the design and layout of the first ever timeline of the event’s entire 10 year history. It was a massive amount of information, and it was all treated perfectly. I honestly have no idea how she pulled it off. But whatever I sent her way, she seamlessly integrated into the overall project, and I was incredibly proud of the outcome. The initiative was extremely well received by the client and the industry, all of whom have a vested interest in how the story of the event is told, and subsequently inspired a copycat project from Whistler Blackcomb, to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

For more than 20 years, I have had the privilege of being a client, colleague and friend of Susan Butler’s. We have worked together on many projects including the promotion of the outdoor concert series during the early days of the World Ski & Snowboard Festival, the development of the Crankworx Whistler brand and the launch of Whistler’s Great Outdoor’s Festival. Susan is creative, has great vision and always delivers the projects on time and on budget. And - we have had a lot of fun along the way!
