We are all big-agency alumni who realized there was an easier way to get to better work. How you ask? By keeping it intimate, curating a multi-facetted and experienced team, and honing the focus on compelling creative we could all be proud of.
So we started Brought To You By, a Creative Studio focused on what matters most to us: delighting clients with exceptional work. It really is that simple. Why hasn’t anyone else thought of this?
Our name is representative of our central, core belief: the people doing the work, are the people credited.
At BTYB, we celebrate autonomy and ownership of work, and more importantly, we encourage time for personal creative projects to not only further development, but keep everyone invested in the belief that passionate work makes a difference.
“We are a team of Creative Directors, Writers, Designers and Account Directors. We are all in this together.”

We develop motion graphics, from interstitials and title sequences, to more complex CGI and animation.
Film & Post Production
BTYB was founded by filmmakers who saw an opportunity to bring rich and moving storytelling to the online space. Our approach employs large production aesthetics and practices to even the smallest of shoots, and all post-production, including editing, colour correction & sound design, is handled in house to ensure that vision is met.
Marketing & Advertising
We develop strategically sound and cohesive communications for brands, based on valuable insights and our penchant for all things digital. We are tapped-in to what’s going on and we continuously bring that forward thinking into our work.
Branding & Design
We take a holistic approach when creating compelling content for your brand. Be it through film, design, interactive or storytelling, our multi-faceted team sees the bigger picture across all aspects of a project. We are conceptual thinkers and designers by trade and thrive in an open sandbox. We love the ideation process as much as we enjoy bringing that vision to life. We play well on our own, but also enjoy the collaboration with other passionate and creative agencies. Our sweet spot is the culmination of multiple mediums and touch points through engaging storytelling and images that move you.
