So, what do you do again?

Ok. You’ve got a great product. Or a great new company. Or an established company. But people just don’t seem to “get” the amazing value you offer to your market.

Hiring a big agency is out of your budget, but you still deserve solutions that have all the quality and depth of a big agency — but with fewer latte’s.

That’s where we come in. Just great ideas and surprising insights that build your organization’s visibility, market-understanding and brand value.

Imagine, graphic solutions that actually help you sell more.

Or, it’s like your present supplier seems to have better things to do. You’re feeling like since you don’t have $2M a year for your marketing budget, they’re kinda “just phone-ing it in”.

Let us give you a second opinion. Sometimes a fresh brain can help you see your communications strategy in a new light.

We’re more than just what looks trendy. You deserve a solution built on strategy and with clear business goals to help you bring in new leads and close sales easier.

And we’re just the kind of Toronto-based agency that delivers those solutions — from concept-to-delivery.

Targeted Advertising, Pithy, yet highly effective, Marketing Campaigns, Concept-to-delivery Creative Services – heck, even marketing that actually helps you sell more stuff and not just sit in a box in the breakroom.

{I have worked with Phil Emery of Focused Creative for more than 10 years. During those years we collaborated on projects for mutual clients and I also hired Focused Creative to provide services under my direction for my individual clients. The range of work has included marketing, graphic design for print or digital media, website development and advertising. In all cases, Phil Emery and Focused Creative delivered quality work on time. I believe this is based not just on talent, but on the fact that Phil listens. He works to understand the client’s needs and suggests practical solutions that will fall within budget and timelines. It is also important that he is easy to work with. I can recommend his work to anyone who needs a reliable and creative consultant.
