Dog bites story / focus group testing

Two new bits of information to share today. If they’re not your cup of tea, hopefully the next comic book release in April will grab you.

Dog bites focus group video
We are in the process of testing our new dog bites story. As most of you know, we make videos out of the rough pencil sketches to make the story testing process more palatable to youth and busy adults. We’d like to hear what you think of the draft story, and most importantly, what changes we could implement to make it better. We will take your feedback and revise the story, while it is cheap and easy to do so. You can check out the short on our YouTube channel at healthyaboriginal, or if social media is blocked at work, on our website at (you may need to refresh your browser if you can’t see the embed at the top). Please email your thoughts to sean[at] by April 6th at the latest. The finished product will look like the rest of our comic books, naturally.New service – focus group testing other organization’s work
From time to time, organizations will ask us if we can make their publications / website more attractive to Aboriginal youth. Now, we don’t create reports, brochures or websites, but we do have an opinion – you need to get your resources under the noses of the target audience. And not just one test group – several, of varying age ranges and different locations. And most importantly, not just Aboriginal youth, but a control group of general population youth as well. Because chances are that the results are going to be the same – that your website doesn’t come up when they search, there’s too much text and there are too many clicks to get to the information they want (just to name a few). And you might hear a complaint or two about website links with thirty characters in the address, government. Anyway, we have credibility and access to youth across Canada and we are offering the fee based service effective immediately. But if you’re looking for a fancy, expensive report we might not be the shop for you. Our service is based on access to youth and practical, no nonsense reporting. Please send an email to sean[at] if you’re interested in a quote.

We hope you continue to find us relevant to youth’s needs,
