We Are The Brigade
The most creative advertising agency in Calgary, that isn't an agency at all
We are not an agency. We are a global network of independent specialists who have joined together to start a creative revolution. It’s hard to believe that the 9-5 workday was created during the industrial revolution over a century ago, but almost every company still uses the same assembly line system. As a company that is looking towards the future, we’re leading a revolution by developing the ideal conditions for creativity. We give our team the freedom to work where and when they want, with only two rules: do your best work and live and die by the deadline.
Our team has worked with
Back to the Future Almanac at SXSW 2015
In the 80s “the future” seemed so far away, but we couldn’t wait for it to arrive. Well, it’s 2015 already and while we don’t have flying cars yet, it’s still a pretty awesome time to be alive. That’s why we created this book, to dream about the future and see what comes next. We can’t wait.
Branding & Graphic Design
The Brigade team specializes in building brands from the ground up. Starting with a brand persona & strategy, the team will then develop your new logo, business cards, letterhead, and brand guidelines so that you will look great at every touch point.
Digital & Social Strategy
Either working with your existing traditional agency or as a separate engagement, our team of strategists will help you identify opportunities in social media, mobile, point of sale and online.

Video Strategy and Production
Who wants to read anything anymore, right? Text is boring. Ironically you may be reading this and thinking the same thing. Our motion and design team will help you create professional video content for social media, an online annual report, or your website.
Tactile Screen Displays
A new batch of tiny consumers are growing up expecting to interact with every screen in the house, including your smudged up LCD television. We bring touch screen experiences to life in retail stores, restaurants, or wherever your customers want to touch you.
