We believe in authenticity over superficiality and aim to shatter the status quo. We trust our gut, and work closely with our clients to do the same. 

Born in 2008, during the heart of the recession (great time to start a business, huh?). Just a couple of account and creative people looking to shake things up. From the big agency world, to a smaller, more personal place for clients and brands to be daring and thrive. At the end of the day, we're a collective of passionate thinkers and creators who love breaking new creative ground.

I can't. But WE can.

A blend of passionate marketers, creatives and brand specialists, with one goal: to move companies, people and brands to become influential, original and unexpected.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“It’s great to work with a team that focuses on not just doing, but one that strategically looks to refine and improve your brand. Canopy’s team is able to do this in more ways than one. Always thinking of ways to engage and educate our audience.”
— Director of PepsiCo Recycling
“Canopy demonstrated their ability to download the Otter Pops brand positioning and messaging in a timely manner, then bring it to life on our new branded website. It was comforting as a Brand Manger to work with a team that was passionate about getting all the brand elements integrated and visually depicted correctly on the site.”
— Marketing Director, Otter Pops
“I look to them for their unique thinking and creativity and fast turnaround. How about five days notice for ideas on a major market promotion that would have to be executed in three weeks? They gave me five ideas and made our choice happen. Their team pulled together and met all the criteria we set.”
— Marketing Director, Sierra Mist
“We challenged them to develop an idea for Millennials that would take us into a new market. They came back with a winner. It included dialogue, traffic, and transactions with Millennials online, socially and with gamification.”
— Marketing Director, Starbucks Frappuccino
“Canopy quickly developed an understanding of our business, helped us develop a positioning strategy and effectively implemented that strategy. They “punched above their weight” by delivering high-quality work with a personal touch. Their thinking is very insightful and they bring a very pragmatic and results-oriented approach to our marketing challenges. I would highly recommend them.”
— COO, First Capital
“Canopy has been a great partner to us. Their approach to branding is very holistic and takes into consideration market trends. Additionally, I have really enjoyed how they have partnered with us from the very early stages, getting to know our consumers at a deeper level. All of which have led to well thought out and creative ideas.”
— Sr. Marketing Manager Strategic Growth Opportunities Dole, PepsiCo
“Canopy Brand Group consolidates strong consumer insight, robust strategic thinking with a creative pulse that’s unusual to find at one shop. I’ve worked with their partners for years throughout many engagements and the deliverables consistently exceed my expectations.”
— Head of Marketing, Nokia
