At Spruce Creative, we believe every organization—from associations to NGOs, government agencies to private sector companies—has the power to make our communities better places to live, work, and play. The key is to tell a story that brings people together to make something new happen. And to get the word out. That’s where we come in.
Founded in 2015 by Paul Marconi, an Indigenous graphic designer with over 25 years leading integrated digital campaigns, and Andrew Vincent, a writer and strategist, Spruce Creative is an Ottawa-based creative agency with a deep understanding of — and true passion for — the marketing and branding challenges faced by organizations building strong, vibrant communities.
Through our tight-knit team of writers, digital marketing strategists, graphic designers and web developers we offer a full range of services to communicate your brand and message to the right audiences. Through our consultative approach, which foregrounds respect, listening, learning and collaboration, we have earned a growing reputation as a partner for not-for-profits, associations, municipalities, and Indigenous organizations across the country.
Spruce Creative is proud to have Indigenous ownership and leadership. We are a diverse team of design professionals and work to maintain an environment that is safe for everyone to participate regardless of background, including ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation or ability. We approach every relationship, with each other and our clients, with respect and know that working together is key to building a strong, more diverse and inclusive society.
We are proud that through our collaborative process, many one-off projects have grown into long-lasting client relationships, and we pride ourselves on growing with our clients just as they grow with us.
