A pop-up ad agency focused on providing top-tier work to deserving non-profits at no cost is preparing to bring its services to Toronto.
The Give Agency was first launched last year in Halfiax by creative Brian Hickling (currently a creative advisor and a former CD at Extreme and Publicis), PR and media relations strategist Mike Maloney and creative strategist and filmmaker Chaz Thorne. The three brought together a group of volunteers from across different disciplines to create a pop-up, full service agency that would work with area non-profits to help solve their business problems. Supported by the National Advertising Benevolent Society (NABS), the Halifax initiative worked with Feed Nova Scotia, Habitat for Humanity and Bridgeway Academy. MORE
