Who We Are

We are Designvertisers.

What separates WAX from other agencies is our understanding that advertising or design alone will not win. We give equal care and attention to both disciplines to create the unignorable—content that gives audiences a reason to notice, to share, to be compelled to act.

What we do

Every brand has a unique story to tell.

Every piece of communication is another opportunity to engage consumers in that story. Here are a few of our favourite campaigns:

How we do it

Attention is the currency we trade in.

Attention is no longer a given. It’s earned. Leveraging the disciplines of advertising and design, we create content that is worth people’s time and attention.


We have a long track record of garnering international recognition.

Our work has been covered by major media outlets and recognized by the top international award shows—many of which we’ve been invited to judge as well. Our reputation for creating ground-breaking work has placed us amongst the top creative agencies in Canada. As leaders in our industry, we help our clients become leaders in their own.
