Our story beings in 1965, when Gordon and Beth Burke produced and distributed flags across North America. Over a period of 30 years their company grew to be a major player in the traditional flag industry. One of the sons, Ed – who by now you may have met, recognized the opportunities of fabric as a large scale communications tool and this is where the Look bit of our story beings. For 10 years we were called TFCN, The Fabric Communication Network. Soon we were turning international sporting events and retail environments into brand destinations. At this point, we expanded beyond just fabric evolving into designing, engineering and producing sculptures, building wraps, panorama billboards, signage, gateways, building projections and lighting. Today, we create and elevate these brand destinations to include all of the sense, producing truly captivating consumer experiences. And this is how we grew up to become The Look Company. While we still wave our Canadian flag proudly, we now have it flying next to those of other countries, organizations, companies and brands across the world. Our business has matured from the factory in Barrie to a global network of over 5500 square metres of project management, logistics, design and production. So yes, we’re proud to be the originals … in the world of fabric and now the world of Look.
