    HOW TO: Start an Agency

    As the owner of Considerate Agency, a creative agency that focuses on well-being and innovative ideas more than note-worthy contracts and accolades, I often find myself reflecting on the journey that led me to this point. Starting a small creative agency isn’t for the faint of heart, it really isn’t a huge money maker either,…

    Meta Loves Your Business!

    Meta Loves Your Business, but not in the way you think! A few years ago you would have agreed that Facebook and Instagram loved your business like you loved your business!

    The customer isn’t always right.

    We’ve all heard the phrase in any business we’ve ever been a part of, “The Customer Is Always Right”. But has anyone cared to look into where that came from and why we take it so seriously? I’m a huge fan of old sayings, old songs, old jingles and anything I can google search in…


  • BUILDING A BRAND

    BUILDING A BRAND

    Over the years we’ve built many brands! We actually couldn’t count how many, there has been some we’ve forgotten we ever did.

    How images can change the game.

    We often get pegged as “creative guys” who “can do this stuff quick” and just take “pretty pictures”. Which is sorta true, but it’s much deeper than that. It’s fun for sure, but what we do is a much deeper dive into creativity, looks and feels that makes people really notice the brands we work…

    You Can’t Cancel Love Campaign

    If cancel culture comes at you for reasons that are out of your control, should you cower or should you take it like a man? I’d say neither, take it like a woman! I met Kelly and Erinn (of Kellys Bake Shoppe) in 2012 when they started the bake shoppe downtown Burlington ON. My company…

    The sky is falling, you’re standing on it.
