ABOUT US
Railpath walkway in the Junction, Toronto

Incorporated in 1986, the firm recently made a new home in Hamilton, following many years in the Junction area of Toronto. We are 100% Canadian owned, employing a highly qualified team of strategists, creatives, developers and project managers full time.

Our business is to solve brand and communications challenges for other organizations and to impact the business operations of those organizations in an appreciable and positive way.

We are particularly strong with rebrands, adequately funded start-ups and organizations that are wanting to accelerate their growth through clearer and more meaningful visual messaging.

We will work with any organization large or small that believes in the value of good design, the impact it can make on their businesses and that wishes to work in an environment of mutual respect, learning, intelligence and passion.

We have thrived in a highly competitive and rapidly changing industry for long enough to have learned that the best work comes from projects driven by people with passion, intelligence and an understanding of the value of good design. With that in mind we are always in search of honest collaboration, sustainable growth and creating a rich, mutually beneficial business experience

We will approach your business from a position of collaboration and learning. You teach us. We’ll teach you. We believe that projects and relationships thrive best in an environment of mutual respect, listening and open dialogue.

We will strategize, design and implement your project from a position of robust critical thought, conceptual rigour, pride in craft and the application of best-practices in design and business.

With a reputation as early adopters over the past 30 years we have time-and-again adapted to new technologies and evolved to meet the demands of an ever-changing industry landscape. Our MO has always been, what we don't know, we can learn.

What we bring to our work is 30 years of best business practices, strategic and design thinking. Underlying this is an equally long and successful marriage to technology mixed with traditional craftsmanship – the former having to do with currency and the latter with quality.
