About Us

small but mighty.

Big Results.

We like to think big. We like to deliver big results for every client. We like to work with small businesses and local organizations.

We’re small, but mighty. We harness the power of the internet at a local scale to ensure you can take full advantage of all things digital. Since 2013, we’ve been driving growth and delivering results for local non-profits, with small businesses, and in politics.

We’re your boutique digital agency. We’re full-service, friendly, and we care … about you and your success. Because after all, your success is our success.

we halifax.

It’s only appropriate that our name should reflect a little piece of our city. Boom12 is an acknowledgement that Halifax is home. A hat-tip to our past, present, and future.

Almost every day since 1857, a boom echoes through Halifax’s downtown at 12pm. It is reliable. It is bold. It surprises and shakes things up each and every day. And it is a part of what makes Halifax unique. All the things we strive to be each day.

Our core team is complimented by our growing network of partners in design, web development, and more.
