Take the plunge

We’re all online. Your grandma shares .gifs on Facebook. The shawarma place on your block is all over Instagram. You’re not impressing anybody, or getting any business, by having an outdated website and zero social presence.

Online is evolving faster, and weirder, than anyone can possibly keep up with. If you want to be there, you’ll need a sidekick. A Dory to your Nemo. A Butch to your Cassidy. A coffee to your doughnut. Or, if you want to get technical, a full-service brand marketing agency that’ll be your entire marketing department without you having to buy desks and dental plans and stuff.

Need a First-Rate

First Mate?

We started out in rural Alberta, and our rural roots are one of the reasons we're different—from our core values that encourage giving back, to our proven processes that demonstrate a commitment to open communication. Since starting in 2016 we've grown to serve clients of all shapes and sizes from across western Canada.


99.8% of businesses in Canada have 500 employees or less: they're a vital, vibrant, innovative sector of the economy and we want to dive in with both feet.



From grocery stores to credit unions to fuel cooperatives, these democratically-controlled organizations are often at the forefront of doing good work in their community.



We love working for non-profits. Charities, DMOs, arts organizations and chambers of commerce all present unique challenges, and we do love a challenge.


Funded Startups

If you've got an idea, a plan for moving it forward and start-up funding to put behind it, then we want to get you to the point where your start-up has a cool converted warehouse office with a foosball table.


Everything is a Brand…

You don’t get to ignore your brand or your marketing in 2018. Everything, and everyone, it seems, is branded. Everyone is surrounded by marketing messages from billion-dollar companies. You’re not just competing with your company’s peers any more, or even the shop down the block, you’re competing with the big fish like Apple and Amazon for jaded consumers.

Branding manages to be both a complex hard science and seat-of-your-pants artistry. If you want to create a brand that actually sticks with people then you’ll need a partner, a multi-armed sidekick who’ll understand your company as well as you do and come up with everything from a colour scheme to a mission statement to your public relations strategy. And it won’t suck.
