When you engage us to take on a project we approach it with one goal in mind: achieving results that not only push the boundaries of what others have done before but that also use technology to go where your market lives, and campaigns that resonate with that market. We always reach beyond and we always aim to exceed your expectations. We focus on generating a high return on investment for you. In doing so, we give you personalized attention. We listen to what your objectives are and customize our ideas and work to meet those requirements. As we are so entrenched in the world of online marketing and building brands online we can often offer ideas that you may have not even considered but are a part of our daily existence.

Don't take it from us – listen to what some of our clients have to say about us.

Our services

Strategy

At Addrenaline we jump right inside your brand. Knowing your market, your audience and your business goals is the key to creating content that is both meaningful and impactful. Our range of experience is so diverse that we present strategies that are all-encompassing—including campaign messaging, public activations, and events that engage and expand your audience.

Branding

We've designed and developed corporate identities for many of our clients and activations. We can create and shape an identity for you that not only resonates with your market, but pushes the envelope in terms of design style and edge.

Communications & Marketing

Choosing and crafting the assets that will make up your campaign is our favorite thing to do. Whether we're scripting text to be read, or scripting for on-camera our understanding of the difference between the two and communication trends is what sets us apart. We shoot unique photos to accompany your messaging, and we create companion videos completely in-house that are broadcast worthy and can be tailored to suit Instagram's formatting and audience demands.

Video Storytelling

Not only do we have the best suite of 4K cameras and video lenses in the business, we know how to use them to create content that is visually stunning and engaging. Addrenaline is known as the BEST when it comes to making people feel at-ease on camera and we will work with you to tell your story in an impactful way whether we're using hired talent, or members of your team. We focus on location scouting and after effects animations that bring our video content to life.

Audio Production

We have a 1,000 square foot audio studio at our warehouse in Oakville that is used to capture professional quality voiceovers and we've even recording bands and musical acts. If your video doesn't sound good it won't be good, no matter how much you invest in visuals.

Social Media Campaigns

No marketing strategy is complete without a fully fleshed out social strategy. We've worked with Public Health Ontario to craft it's 2019 teen vaping strategy and have designed all aspects of this campaign including branding, voice, graphics, audio and video production and social targeting.

We're ready when you are.

Whether you want us to build you a complete campaign that encapsulates a strategy with an implementation roadmap for all platforms, or you simply want us to focus on one of our strengths on your behalf, reach out and lets start communicating about how we can achieve your goals.

  • Ed Peterson

    Content Management Systems are great for building sites, but their true benefit is that they offer our clients the freedom and flexibility to manage their own content.

    I started programming in 2002 working with JavaScript and HTML, coding pages by hand. I proceeded to learn PHP so that I could create dynamic pages.

    Around 2004 I began working with Content Management Systems (e.g. Joomla, WordPress) because they offered a great base to build websites with. I developed a number of extensions for the Joomla CMS in those early years and was listed as a developer in their extension directory. I am proud to have worked with Joomla for over 15 years, being a part of its development and growth.

    When required I can develop a custom CMS extension in order to meet our client's unique needs, if existing extensions will not achieve their goals.

    I help clients take their design ideas and functionality goals and turn them into modern, mobile-friendly websites.
