At Swimco, we’ve had an amazing 2014! This year was full of new people and places, as well as expanding our Swimco family. There were so many great moments, it was hard to narrow them down, but here are some of the best memories we’ll be carrying with us into 2015.
We travelled to La Saladita, Mexico for a whirlwind photo shoot. Our hard-working team really came together beautifully. Read or watch more behind the scenes adventures, or visit our Facebook album to meet the crew of photographers, models, and Swimco staff.
The fun never seem to end with our contests this year, with the confidence in the monthly Show Your Swimco contest, or the joy and exuberance that our Video Contest winner Caroline showed! More recently, we partnered with Jantzen for a giveaway tie-in to their Babes & Bathers exhibition at the Vancouver Maritime Museum, and our Free-Esta Fridays have been a huge hit!
Our schedules were packed with worthy causes and events in 2014. We participated in the Motionball Special Olympics fundraiser and Cocktails for Critters fashion show for the Calgary Humane Society, donated in partnership with Beach House for their Be Pink breast cancer research initiative, SAXX Underwear’s Movember promotion, and the Ronald McDonald House team scavenger hunt in Vancouver, BC. We also held several fundraisers in our head office, with a standout being the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – Brr!
We visited the Talisman Centre in Calgary for our fitness photos (where we also sponsored Floatables Day!) and then for lovely lake images, we were off with the team to Invermere, BC.
Amazing people joined the Swimco family this year like YouTube sensation Nikkie from NikkieTutorials. In our head office, we had more big news with three new babies (and two more on the way!) joining the Swimco crew. One of our team members also got married in a gorgeous destination ceremony.
In May, our new online store was launched. Now we are able to bring the best selection of swimwear in Canada to the entire country!
Aside from photo shoots, our team travelled near and far in 2014. We held Swimco’s 39th birthday bash in Tofino, BC, and the buying team flew to Miami Swim Week for previews of the hottest new swimwear collections. Closer to home, we had a team visit 17th Ave in Calgary to bring some smiles and cool water to the summer crowds.
2014 was a great year, and we’re looking forward to another one! Thank you for sharing our journey with us!
