We are a new marketing company in Halifax. When we started Halifax’s newest marketing agency, the genesis of it came when we realized that we’ve all got business Kryptonite. You know—the stuff you put off because you’re not good at it, you don’t understand it, or maybe it even scares the pants off you.

A couple of years ago, David Tonen and Garth Holmes were both freelancing—David in marketing and Garth in web design and video. Brainstorming over coffee about how they could help each other’s businesses grow, they discovered something. All the things David liked to do were the things Garth avoided, and the things Garth liked to do were the things that sent David running for cover.

Together, they figured, they’d be unstoppable. And they might even have fun.

A great partnership was born. And that’s exactly what BeResponsive can be for you: The perfect partner to face down your Kryptonite.

Garth and David meet you where you are and create fully integrated, seamless solutions to all your marketing and communication needs. Whether it be marketing strategy, branding, graphic design, website development, print, video, or digital brand management, we will work with your best interests in mind.

No mystery, no waiting to see if anyone’s going to pick up the phone when you call, and no wondering if you’re buying a million-dollar solution to a thousand-dollar problem.

In other words, no worrying. We’ve got you.
