A Little Bit Of Altitude.

We're a branding & design studio in Ottawa, collaborating with businesses, non-profits, and individuals in harnessing the power of branding.

We love clean lines, coffee, and dad jokes. You read that right, Dad Jokes.

Who we work with.

We've had the incredible opportunity to create, expand, and collaborate with people from around the world.

Unlike some branding and design studios, we do not limit the sectors we collaborate with. We relish the chance to learn about new industries, processes, and people. We focus our efforts in Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley but have worked with clients from around the world.

We chose projects based on if we're a good fit for each other; such as if you understand how powerful branding and design can be and if the purpose of the project is something altitude believes in. Through collaborating, we've been able to grow, learn, and foster real change, together.

Boosting your team

Sometimes you need all hands on deck and then some. Whether it be an outside perspective, a creative director to guide your vision, or extra hands, we empower your existing team to get projects out the door.

Being your team

Maybe you have a stellar idea but aren't sure how to get it out there, or you're a solopreneur. We leverage our experience and network to discover, explore, craft, and deploy your idea from the ground up.

People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.

When you're at your best, so are we. We build success by collaborating and emphasizing the relationships that come out of our projects. We're into relationships, not flings. We put people before profits.

Efficacy

When we're at our best, so are you. We pride ourselves on our exceptional attention to detail and crafting bespoke solutions that are research-based, but not afraid to push the boundaries.

Curiosity

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it fuels us. We seek out opportunities that are amusing, challenging, and impactful, even if it means we fail somewhere along the way.

Justin Prno - Brand Strategist  

After serving 11 years in the Army and 16 in the creative world -over a decade of that at altitude- Justin amassed an intriguing & broad array of expertise to put to his name. From researching political branding to hole digging and lots in between, unfortunately not all that knowledge is handy today (surely an impeccable hole will need to be dug sometime!). However, all those experiences helped form his leadership style, design aesthetic, quirky humour, grit, and ever-curious nature.

Justin has also appeared in the media, lecturing, conferences, and panels discussing political branding, small business branding, and empowering brands through design. Interested in having Justin speak? Get in touch.
