Multimedia

Being multi-disciplinary is not enough.

Arkade Multimedia

Trans-disciplinary is the new expertise: a default condition. That’s why we strive to use varied skillsets to help clients reach their audience and delight their customers in unexpected ways. Whether a project be big or small, their’s always a way to combine media, content, and programs to challenge the status quo and provide added value.

Marketing

Make meaning not marketing.

Arkade Marketing

A brand is an engine of growth. We help clients activate their brand by creating meaningful relationships between and amongst products, people, and places. We put everything together so that companies reach an ever wider audience, brand intact and message on point.

Architecture

Space, the final frontier (of identity design).

Arkade Architecture

Architecture has a great deal of overlooked public, cultural, and business potential.
That being said we’re not so much interested in architecture, as we are with all things spatial. Whether interior, building, or playground, we help clients create spaces that function better, and express themselves, their brand, and their context, thanks to creative spacing.

WE HAVE A CHALKBOARD WALL, THEREFORE WE ARE A CREATIVE AGENCY

No, we are not an arcade...

WHO WE ARE

We work with clients to help them find new ways of expressing who they are so as to better engage their customers. We plan and execute campaigns through various media, including web and architecture. We measure campaign impacts and iterate. Though we might propose unorthodox means, we’re here for a very simple reason: to help businesses and institutions grow.

Arkade Marketing

Make meaning not marketing

Marketing, the big picture

OUR APPROACH

If multimedia is the 'what', then marketing is the 'how' and the 'why' of advertising. We approach marketing as if it was multimedia’s hyper-analytical, results-oriented cousin. We make sure the ideas behind a proposal are actually pertinent to the market at hand, and that, if so, they make it to the ideal audience through the most effective channels. This allows us to make sure our clients get the most out of their advertising. Most importantly, we view marketing as an iterative process. That's why we help make every campaign an opportunity to better understand an audience and better quantify how our clients' campaigns help them grow their their business.

Arkade Multimedia

Being multi-disciplinary is not enough.

Multi-Media the big picture.

OUR APPROACH

Today's audience is comprised of spectators, activists, fans, participants, guests, and innumerable hybrid consumers. It's no surprise, then, that multimedia campaigns are ubiquitous. We believe that an effective use of multimedia is not a question of checking boxes – web, print, etc… - but of being nimble enough to allow an idea to lead you where it will. Our approach relies on making sure that it’s the ideas, and not the media that define the message.

Arkade Architecture

Space, the final frontier (of identity design).

ARCHITECTURE, the big picture

OUR APPROACH

We approach architecture as a means to make the invisible, visible: to concretize a company’s culture or the way people want to lead their lvies. We design with the conviction that architecture has the potential to help people live better, work better, even play better. To that end, we tend to think of architecture in terms of space, rather than in terms of buildings, which allows us to consider how 2D work impacts an environment and vice-versa. We use architecture as one medium among many, keeping in mind that of all media, it’s the most enduring, and, by virtue of inhabitation, the most intimate.
