The Company

Arcade is an award-winning digital agency specializing in strategy, content production, social media, email marketing and digital advertising. We leverage engaging content and modern distribution strategies to nurture online communities, maximize brand influence, and generate revenue.

We believe that marketing is more than persuading a person to purchase. To us, it’s romantic. It’s the art of combining mediums and messages to not only inform consumer behaviour, but to influence culture. We’re idealistic about the role marketing plays in the evolution of our economy and society, and we’re intent on contributing to conversations and moments that have the potential to influence our collective future.

The Standards

Be proud of who you are. Our stories and marketing campaigns are better when they originate from a group of people arriving from different perspectives, ethnic backgrounds, orientations, genders, and worldviews. Who we are and how we see ourselves is directly related to how the world will receive our work.

Always be in beta. We’re determined to make a mark that lingers far after we’re gone, which means pushing boundaries and taking risks. Always learning and adapting, we are uncomfortable with staying the same. Legacies are built by those who dare to evolve with the world, and who have the drive to reimagine their work over and over again.

Be humble. Confidence is an asset, arrogance is a liability. The strength of any team stems from the individual’s ability to recognize both their strengths and weaknesses, and celebrate their team’s success as their own. Similarly, we share in our failures or shortcomings as a first step to identifying creative solutions for future growth. We do our best work when we work together, through moments of difficulty and success.

Take it all the way. No one wants generalists; the world needs specialists. Have the courage to define your genius zone—whether it's strategy, social, writing, or creative-—and take it all the way. Double down on your own education, push your own limits, and become a true practitioner in your craft.
