You're probably expecting us to explain the origins of our name. Sorry to disappoint.

The Skinny on Awkward Media

We started this thing, not really knowing where it was going. All we knew was, that we loved creating cool stuff. It turns out, that's all we really needed. Our passion for what we did brought us some awesome projects. Those projects brought in more awesome clients. And the rest, as they say, is pizza. Wait, what?


This is probably one of the most important pieces to any business. Your brand. What does it stand for? What do you want it to communicate? How do you visually represent your business effectively? We have a rather unhealthy obsession with branding. From writing the appropriate copy to creating the logo, we do it all. Every colour, every curve, every font counts and we’re crazy meticulous about it all.


The one form of digital marketing you absolutely need, is offered by yours truly. Awkward Media has scoured far and wide to assemble the perfect team that can bring your website to page 1 for Google, Yahoo, Bing and all other search engines. Our digital ninjas work tirelessly to stay on top of the latest Google algorithms to make sure that your rankings soar. With some of the biggest names in the business trusting us with their SEO, you can bet your bottom dollar that we’ll get you the results you need. After all, there really is very little point in having a website if nobody can find it.


Printing is a lost art form. It used to be an intimate experience with the printer and the machine, crafting the very best in quality and design. Today, it’s not uncommon to see colour losses, low quality paper and inconsistent prints with your projects. Thankfully, we’ve formed some very special bonds with some of the finest printers in Toronto to bring the best quality at the lowest price rates. If we design it for you, we can get it printed.

Web and Mobile Design

We don’t have to tell you how important it is to have a slick web and mobile site. We’ll just tell you that we’re not like the other guys. You know, the ones who use cookie cutter templates and tell you they did it from scratch? Unlike so many other agencies now a days, we hand craft your design from conception to inception. We’re very particular about the details of your brand, which is why we’d never use templates. You want to stand out amongst the crowd, not in it.

Our Team

There are definite benefits to working with your friends, especially when your friends are as talented and passionate as the team here at Awkward Media.

Our complementary skillsets and experiences help us to work effectively to deliver outstanding projects.

Combine this with our approachable and grounded personalities and you’ve got some pretty cool people working for you. We take pride in being the best at what we do, and look forward to exchanging not only ideas with you, but money for jokes as well.
