COPP Marketing + Design is a full-service marketing agency based in Waterloo, Ontario, with offices and fully bilingual services in Montreal. We are a smaller firm – small enough for high-level client service and greater control over your timing and budget, and large enough to engage strategically, creatively and tactically on every project, with the attention to detail and quality you’d expect from an expensive Toronto agency…at a fraction of the price.
We work with a variety of clients to start, grow, and enhance brands for increased leads and sales – with breakthrough creative, digital marketing, video and design. We work hard to create trust as a marketing partner. Our strength lies in client success and a commitment to exceptional creative work and strong relationships. We’d love the opportunity to work with you and your team.
Also unique for a smaller agency, we have international marketing credentials and expertise. The co-founders spent time at global advertising agencies Saatchi & Saatchi in Europe and Fallon Worldwide in the USA. Take advantage of a small agency with big project experience.
And… In 2017, we celebrate our 15th anniversary!
