Hi. Welcome to Brightworks

Everything you expect from your marketing agency,
and just a little bit more.

We solve
and brand challenges

We are a creative agency that is a little hard to categorize. Over the 10 years we've been in business, through the 1000+ projects we delivered last year to some of the most respected brands in the world, and across the 85 international awards we've won since 2012 one thing remains consistent — we create experiences that connect the right brand message to the right audience. We've done that through desktop, mobile and social channels as well as via traditional (read: paper) tactics. Our clients consistently say three things about us: we're strategic, we're creative and we deliver.

We're a group of dedicated, passionate and thoughtful marketers

We try hard to create an environment within the agency that, within the turmoil of deadlines and projects and challenges, is open and supportive and fun. We know this sounds a little trite, but we aren't a 400-person firm where pulling this off is frankly nearly impossible. We are a mid-sized independent and passionate agency, with a flat organizational structure and some of the best people you could spend your day with.

Brightworks 10th Annual


Thank you to everyone that made it out for our 10th Annual Summer Party!

The last ten years have been incredible and we were thrilled to see so many Brightworks clients and friends at our celebration. Cheers to another 10 years!

Art Gallery Of Ontario

No one loves a party more than Brightworks, and this one is MASSIVE! As the Creative Partner for this year’s AGO MASSIVE PARTY we were tasked with delivering on a vision from Creative Director Talwst that was inspired by the groundbreaking Basquiat exhibition currently running at the AGO.  The net result is a playful, energetic take on the theme of Hotbed.  Drawing more than 1,900 guests and raising over $300,000 to support the AGO, MASSIVE is a night to remember!

Featured Work

Niagara Integrated film festival

Brightworks had the pleasure to work with Bill Marshall, TIFF founder on his next greatest event! The Niagara Film Festival was launched in 2014 and designed to bring together film, food and wine in order to create the ultimate movie experience.  NIFF wrapped up a very successful 2015 event – over 80 films (a hand-picked selection of live action and animated films from Canada and around the world), almost 9,000 attendees and over 100 volunteers.



We are incredibly proud of the work we do with all of our clients. Over the years we’ve won 55 International Awards in industry categories including Health, Financial Services, Consumer Goods, Pharmaceutical, Education, Non-Profit, Website, Mobile Site, Mobile App, Interactive Application, Online Campaign, and Print Advertising Campaign.



After almost a decade in King West, we have moved east and set up shop in Riverside. We love our new home at the corner of Queen East and Broadview, and are proud to be part of this thriving and growing neighbourhood! Our new space inspires creativity and collaboration but is also somewhere to relax and entertain at the end of the day. Pay us a visit and see for yourself!

Day 2015

Innovation Day Logo

Organized and hosted by Brightworks, the goal of Innovation day is to expose our guests to new ideas, new technology, and new approaches to marketing int he digital age. We work hard to present local and international speakers who get us excited, make us a little bit smarter, and who share ideas that we can then claim as our own to impress our colleagues!

On March 4, 2015, we hosted our 5th annual Innovation Day for over 250 Brightworks friends and colleagues. This year’s event was called “inspirational”,”fun”, and “amazing” by attendees. With speakers from Contagious Magazine, Museum Hack, Tapped Mobile, and Dragons Den, we covered everything from museum adventures to discovering the next big thing! For more no w hat the attendees were saying, check out the social summary, and for photos and illustrations from ImageThink, visit the Innovation Day site.
