Our story.

We’ve made a name for ourselves by practicing our craft.

In 1981, our doors opened with one goal in mind, provide better than great ideas backed by strategies that work. This is where experience makes the difference.

Big or small, around the corner or down the highway, we pride ourselves on building true partnerships based on solid relationships, respect and attention to detail. We don’t specialize in one category as we believe a wide range of clientele keeps our minds sharp and our offerings even sharper.

Great minds think alike and we can prove it!

Think of us as your one stop shop. No need to manage multiple agencies or outsource to a variety of suppliers, OKD’s capabilities and skillsets are the foundation of a full spectrum approach designed to provide you with a full service, in-agency experience.

At OKD anything is possible.

OKD Brand Engagement was a result of a merger with Susan Ramsay, former partner at MRG Advertising. The OKDBE team specializes in partner promotions, aligning brands with similar goals, and creating powerful consumer programs that move the numbers.

Led by Julie Copithorne and Cid Hanna, our Calgary office allows OKD to better service our clients in Western Canada. Together we provide research-driven strategy, and a “service-first” approach to account management across the country. We are more than just partners, we are an extension of our clients’ marketing departments.

We all know video is becoming the dominant media of the future. With MJM’s extensive range of video and audio capabilities, OKD provides best-in-class video and production services to our clients.

A full-service agency that’s actually full service.
