Marketing Designed For You...
You Have A Story To Tell
And Value To Offer
Our Job Is To Empower You!
We work with startup and growing companies to help with marketing strategies and help optimize and execute their marketing activities. We’ll help you create the best marketing solution to yield the returns you’re looking for, based on your goals and objectives. We begin by looking at your needs, and then develop the right strategy for your campaign. From there, we build out the best channels for deployment. Our clients choose to trust their marketing to us: we strategize their growth, build/ manage their websites, launch social media campaigns, optimize their sites, write their blogs, design their collateral – because we do what it takes to get them qualified leads, greater visibility, and help strengthen their reputation.
We understand the unpredictable nature of today’s business needs. We bring years of experience, knowledge, passion, and the know-how from various industries. Our unequivocal passion for excellence, quality, and care drives our decision-making and is the foundation for how we’ve structured our organization. We always keep our ears to the ground, looking for the latest channels and trends; implementing new ideas to ensure your business is always relevant. Our team at Office Guardians is one that is: wired to be curious; aren’t afraid to pivot; entrepreneurial in their approach; and have a passion for building our clients’ brands and businesses.
”Genuine means Authentic” – Genuine means being honest with clients and each other, plain speaking, straight shooting, and transparent with the truth. Being accurate and clear at all times. It interrogates the brief, the client, and their assumptions. It deals in facts and truths and cuts through agency red tape. It is saying sorry when things go wrong. Speaking informally, in plain language and sounding like a best friend who’s got your back.
” Our Founders, Stephen & Melissa Ramkissoon take advantage of each other’s strengths; they founded Office Guardians with the idea that craftsmanship, strategy, and creativity should be applied across the digital experience. The common desire to see startups and established companies grow, is one that fuels their drive to create a team of talented individuals (second to none) that move forward with one creative objective – imagine what could be and then come up with ways to bring the vision to life.
People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe.
Our core values define our company culture, and our team strives to live them, everyday, in everything we do.
As children, we were force-fed education, but as we age, our academic interactions are less frequent, unless you seek them out. We encourage our team to learn: to pursue their passions, listen to one another, and access new knowledge at conferences, the library, on blogs, and via other hands-on means. Oh, and to ask more questions!
Our best decisions and ideas are made when surrounded by people who respect and care for us. We have a positive and optimistic attitude, because this inspires everyone around them. This family spirit is shared with our clients, and we strive to build relationships with everyone we work with.
We are ideas people, and our agency is a place where creativity is encouraged and embraced. Ideas are the core of our business, whether coming up with “out of the box” solutions, or finding new marketing ideas for clients. We believe that pushing the envelope helps to solidify and defend thoughts/concepts, and reshapes thinking. A strong idea or concept will withstand the stress test or will be better at the finish line for having undergone the scrutiny.
We love to have fun. We have a great sense of humour and we know that it’s healthy to laugh. We work hard, but we always look for ways to incorporate fun into our day. Work is only one piece in the personal pie chart of life, and we aim to keep it that way. Since we are only as strong as our people, we encourage them to work hard, play hard, and rest hard. Whenever possible, we help cultivate their passions. And we consider their interests and strengths when we take on jobs. After all, if you love what you do it’s never really work.
We want to wow our clients with our ideas. We believe anything worth doing – from customer service, to strategy or design, should have a WOW factor. This value remains continuous in our thoughts, a defined intention across all touch-points of our organization; it’s the carrot that drives our decision-making, and ultimately, our end product.
We have a passion for our industry, our clients, and our company culture. We believe in what we are doing and where we are going, and our enthusiasm shows in our attitudes and our work.
We seek out innovation and new ideas. We are open minded, and never rule out ideas or suggestions, because having an open mind gives us the best, most creative results. Our practices and solutions are simple, because simple = clear = understandable and executable. We apply this concept to every aspect of the business, from our office space to the services we offer. We also subscribe to the strength of simplicity when we design, write, and write code.
We are always thinking of ways to change processes, perspectives, and opinions, hopefully for the better. We enjoy challenges, and we enjoy growing and changing for the better.
We are compassionate and loyal, and never make decisions that go against our “gut feeling”. We are never dishonest or unethical with each other, our suppliers, or our clients. Everyone deserves respect, transparency, and honesty – the pillars of every interaction with colleagues and clients. Bonus: work, and life in general, will become easier and more productive.
Our honesty when interacting with others leads to strong relationships built on trust. We always encourage and welcome positive, open and honest communication. Relationships are our gold standard. We want to work with awesome people. Because, for us, success is measured by positive experiences, not the bottom-line. As such, we strive to surround ourselves with both smart and passionate team members and clients, those who will grow our minds and hearts and not just our wallets.
We are a team of people who excel in our craft, but Office Guardians is built on more than just skill-sets. Our strength is forged by a commitment to over-deliver, to exceptional client experiences, and to solid personal relationships. As such, we approach each day and each opportunity with genuine empathy, patience, openness, and passion.
Our clients are diverse in size and industry, but have one thing in common; they inspire us to make great work. Having a good fit is important to us – our approach is highly collaborative as we seek to constantly innovate and transform as one team. Our process is lean, iterative, and simple. We study each project’s environment and define ideas into clear, solid strategies. Through to wire-framing, prototyping, to making things look beautiful, we put as much emphasis on the aesthetic as we do with functionality. We also collaborate closely with a tight knit group of talented illustrators, photographers, and animators.
