Where Ideas and Action Connect


For over 24 years, we’ve been providing our clients with fresh, innovative ideas.

Creativity is the cornerstone of our full-service marketing and graphics communications company. We’ve built our business on a creative process that turns ideas into action. We listen to our clients. We take the time to fully understand the unique nature and specific goals of every client before we start, and throughout the entire project. We are committed to providing first-rate client service—one of the reasons our many longstanding clients keep coming back.

Our diverse client base with widely differing needs, are made up of local, regional and international companies with members of the corporate, public and non-profit sectors.

We’re not a large agency with a big overhead. When you hire us, you’ll work with the people who own the company, backed by the specialized expertise of appropriate associates. That means our fees stay competitive.

  • Jennifer Cummings
    Manager Marketing Services


    I have had the pleasure of working very closely with McCorkindale Advertising & Design for the last 13 years, and I can honestly say that they are one of the most reliable and customer centric agencies that I have had a relationship with.

    Their attention to detail and high level of organization has been a valuable asset to me coming from a busy resort environment. Their understanding of our goals and objectives mean that work is done efficiently with my expectations being met every time.

    They have always made us feel like a priority, even during busy times and with last minute requests. They are incredible communicators and I have never worried about missing a deadline with them on our team. McCorkindale Advertising & Design is definitely a class act.

    For over fifteen years, McCorkindale Advertising and Design’s partners have brought their substantial talents and creative energy to the design of award-winning, world-class books for our publishing company.

    Their professionalism, problem-solving skills, unflappable good nature, sophisticated vision, worry-free dependability, and dedication to bringing the project in on-time and on-budget make them a genuine pleasure to work with.

  • Chris Sharpe

    The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony has had a wonderful working relationship with McCorkindale Advertising and Design for more than twenty years. Chris and Sue are bright, informed, take direction extremely well, and always take the time to understand our needs. They collaborate with us on each of our projects so we always end up with excellent results — always surpassing our expectations.
  • Dr. Kenneth McLaughlin
    Distinguished Professor Emeritus of the University of Waterloo


    I have worked with Chris McCorkindale and Sue Breen for more than a decade. What has impressed me most is their combination of creativity and imagination coupled with commitment to detail and perfection. Add to this the confidence that not only will the final product be one of which I will be proud, but that it will also be brought to completion on time and within budget. They are an author’s delight. Not an easy task, but they excel and have always gone beyond my expectations.
  • Sunny Tsang
    Senior Manager, Marketing, External Relations


    Having worked with other agencies, McCorkindale stands above them all — in service, quality, cost and expertise.
    They’re my agency of choice.

Creativity is the power to connect
The seemingly unconnected.
