We are a boutique digital agency based in Halifax serving small businesses, non-profits, and public sector organizations in Atlantic Canada.

We love Atlantic Canada for its diverse people, vibrant cultures, and rich hospitality. Halifax is our home; our name draws from the old reliable cannon atop Citadel Hill that shakes the downtown core every day with a big BOOM at 12pm.

We’re ready to help you knock it out of the inbox with email marketing, own your corner of the internet with a powerful website, reach new heights with affordable digital advertising, and everything in between.

We think big and deliver bigger for small businesses and organizations on a mission to thrive.



These days local businesses, like us, are looking back on two rough years with immense appreciation for our neighbours.

We’re a boutique agency built to deliver results for Nova Scotia, small businesses.

We help you harness the power of the internet to grow your business. That includes building powerful websites, managing social media, sending brilliant email campaigns, developing captivating digital ads, and helping to make the digital world more accessible. 

Start with a made-in-Nova Scotia plan to get you on track to grow your business.

We make sense of it all and we make it easy. Let’s build your plan together.

Carbon Neutral
By 2025

Climate change is real, the impacts are real. It is affecting us each and every day. Everyone at every level must step up.

We take steps to reduce our environmental impact each day. From the little things like recycling and reducing paper consumption to choosing sustainable products, encouraging transit use, and support environmental organizations.

We are committed to measuring our carbon footprint and identifying ways to become carbon neutral by the end of 2024.
