At the heart of everything we do are two words: live artfully.

Because Business is Beautiful

We’re an award-winning branding and web development marketing firm in Stoney Creek, Ontario. We bring the "Live artfully" philosophy to our clients' projects and to our overarching values and vision. We strongly believe that when we put creativity alongside business results, we see marketing at its best. And when that happens, we can say with confidence, business is beautiful.

A deep bench.

Compass has been at this thing called marketing for over 15 years. Inside that number is a diverse group of individuals, united by their passion for brand & web development. Each has their own stockpile of insight and expertise that's necessary and unique to the process.

Who we work for

We place a high value on fit.

Compass Creative works with business owners, sales professionals and marketing managers that are open to discovering their unique opportunities, and who have the courage to change in order to see great things happen.

As branding experts, we've worked with pro-hockey players, book publishers, taxi companies and a good many landscaping / home improvement businesses of all sizes. We remain open to the wider business community but we have deep expertise in working for landscape contractors, manufacturers and non-profits.

Life is short so we place a HIGH value on fit. We're honest about whether we can actually help you or not. Our hope is always that this may be the start of a long and healthy partnership.

Our Mission, Vision and Process

Why we do what we do.

Here’s what gets us out of bed in the morning.

We believe that there is far too much talk [shouting] these days and not enough truth. Far too much baloney and not enough beauty. We want to change that.

We find great purpose in “inspiring and enabling the commercial world”, in creating authentic experiences that delight and move people toward their best interests.

We love creating clarity for our clients, driving positive change in their organizations and helping them tell their story. When we embrace truth, find the courage to focus, and do our work artfully then business becomes beautiful. And that possibility is what gets us out of bed in the morning.

Why we should work together

So what's your story?

If you've scrolled this far, you have some sense of our story.

So, what's yours? Does your corporate identity reflect the true character of your organization? Does your website inform, inspire and motivate your customers or do you secretly wish they never find it? Is your story compelling to potential customers? Are you reaching the right people in the first place?

If you believe that effective visual communications and a meaningful online presence are important tools to drive your organization’s growth, we encourage you to continue browsing our site – particularly our work. If you think we’re a good fit for your organization, give us a call. We’re listening.
