Who We Are

We are Revolve, one of Canada's premier branding and marketing agencies. We apply disruptive thinking to build powerful brands with purpose. We’ve built our reputation on our ability to reduce a complex challenge to a simple strategy. We take a nimble, entrepreneurial and collaborative approach to help build strong, memorable brands based on authenticity and creativity. Our culture is focused on making sure our clients love us and for being known in our industry as a great place to work. We measure success not by top-line revenue or number of awards, but by the success and stickiness of our clients and the tenure of our staff.

Our firm is built on five core values: strategic, creative, uncomplicated, initiative and caring. They are the filters by which we hire, fire, promote and reward. These values set us apart from our competition and are the primary reason our clients love working with us.

Our team of thirty-five works in a waterfront office on the shores of Bedford Basin, in Bedford, Nova Scotia, but we serve clients across Canada and the US. We work hard because we love what we do. We play hard too and are fortunate to work with an awesome group who genuinely care about each other. Revolve is a healthy place to work. In addition to a great work/life balance, there's always fresh fruit in the kitchen and yoga and bootcamp classes are provided for staff to attend.
