print and digital design

Let’s be up front and transparent, we love design – for all of its magnificent possibilities. From logos and branding platforms to websites, social media graphics, collateral programs, stationery packages and point of purchase displays and signage, it all turns our collective cranks. That likely comes as little surprise considering that one of our founding partners and names on the masthead is an award-winning designer – Nadine Buckley.

Steve Jobs famously said – “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” We couldn’t agree more and believe that well-considered design, driven by clear goals and objectives can make a measurable difference to the bottom line and success of organisations of all types. We understand that pragmatism and achieving results are part of job as designers.

Award-winning, business building capabilities

Our capabilities and talents have contributed to the communication success of hotels, law firms, national athletic  associations, hospitals, museums and not for profit organisations to name but a few. McGill Buckley’s work has also won  awards throughout Ottawa, across Canada and around the world.

Strategy Comes First

Our well-established approach is one that starts with determining objectives and developing a coherent and clear strategy. Our proven approach also includes proactive planning, persuasive language and, of course, the visual elements of typography, structure, colour and imagery.

We are equally comfortable and proficient with both traditional print and digital projects.
