Key Gordon is a full-service advertising & design agency in Toronto. We help clients communicate the impossible, turn heads, and prosper. Our mission? To produce provocative, award-winning work for products we believe in. So far, so good.
Key Gordon was founded in 2001 by creative director Grant Gordon and Key Publishers, at the time the largest independent publisher in Canada. Today, Grant runs the firm with Bruce Roberts (a suit who never wears a suit). Together they lead a team of writers and design thinkers who have a very unusual skill in this business: they know how to listen.
We are an advertising & design hybrid. We base every project on a communication concept—an arresting idea. Then we apply original design thinking. To us, neither copy nor design is king. We strive for a magical combination of the two—something that creates tension—verbally, visually, conceptually—and memorable communication.
Today we’re a firm of 15 professionals—big enough to sink our teeth into large projects, but still small enough to obsess over the little ones, too. We listen closely, collaborate helpfully, and offer our clients all the insight, support, and creative material they need to level up.
