We’re proud to announce that the augmented reality app, “Fossil Discovery Adventure“, we created in collaboration with Bit Space Development for the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre  (CFDC) has been named as one of the finalists in the 19th annual Manitoba Tourism Awards within the Innovation category.

We’re really proud of the Fossil Discovery Adventure app. It is something that we put as much heart into as we would for our own projects. This was in part because the folks at CFDC were both kind enough to let us bring an innovative experience into their museum and brave enough to believe we could execute. But also because, frankly, it’s an idea we’ve been wanting to create for a long time.

At ZenFri we believe that the best work can only be done when you’re passionate about it. Which is why when we do commissions, it is only for concepts that we’re truly excited about (see Cinémental 25 for another example).

It’s this dedication to creatively-designed experiences mixed with passionately-fuelled innovation that produces the alchemy of our finest works. Being recognized as a finalist at the Tourism Manitoba Awards for our work on Fossil Discovery Adventure helps assure us that a company built with heart can also be successful.

If you haven’t tried the app yet, or can’t make it out to the CFDC in Morden, Manitoba to try in-person, check out the video above.

The 2017 Manitoba Tourism Awards Ceremony on will be on September 19 at the The Manitoba Museum. We’ll be joining the folks from the CFDC to celebrate our success together regardless of the outcome.  For tickets to the event click here. We hope to see you there!
