why

awedity creative?

I love that you are here and you've made it this far through my website.

 

You love your business, and now, by the sheer fact that you are here, you want to make it incredible, let's do this! Rome was not built in a  day and I know doing it right the first time makes it last a lifetime! 

 

We cannot accomplish everything on our own, but we also don't need big firms with multiple staff (that's extra mouths to feed.  I own this business on my own and source out other passionate contractors when I need to bounce ideas or get stuck, but that doesn't affect my prices. 

 

Truth is, we don't get a second chance to make that first impression, so, together, we do it right the first time, we build something memorable and build marketing plans to help execute everything seamlessly.

 

After spending 20+ years helping the big businesses stay big, I learned that it is much more gratifying to help local business owners find their way, build their business and realize their dreams (which also inadvertently, helps me reach my dreams).

 

I found a need in Okotoks, where I live, so that's where my business launched in 2007. Since then I have helped 100's of fellow business owners in Okotoks, High River, and even a few international companies to develop and grow their business, find ways to connect with their audience, and be seen, after all, don't glasses help you see better?
