We’re Growing (Again)

The Studio Locale team is growing again and we’re excited to offer our customers more services and expertise than ever before.

We’re thrilled to announce the latest chapter in our business’ story. We have collaborated with Eyelight – a local creative services agency – on a business agreement that enables us to grow and allows their founder and principal – Debbie (Deb) Repke – to retire with the confidence that existing Eyelight customers are in good hands.

“We’ve been talking with Deb for many months now, but it was apparent after the first conversation that we had a lot in common. Our agencies are both passionate about design, communications, and our community. We care about putting people first and believe that design has always been about having people at the centre of the process.”

Phil Mondor, Partner and Creative Director

After 30 years, Deb found herself ready for her next adventure. She is retiring and wanted to collaborate with a local agency that shared her values to continue serving Eyelight’s customers. When Eyelight officially closes its doors at the end of this month (September 2017) former staff members Janice Powell, Anson LeClair, and Janet Day will officially become a part of the Studio Locale team.

Growing Strong

Last year, we merged with Toronto-based strategic communications agency Longtale Inc. A year later, we’re growing again by combining forces with Eyelight – a fixture of the creative services landscape here in Waterloo Region. From four team members to six, and now nine – as our team grows, so do our capabilities and expertise.The addition of Janice, Anson, and Janet bolster and enrich our marketing, communications, and design capacity. We also now have in-house development resource with a solid stack of programming languages and technologies. Our diverse team brings many years of combined brand, design, communications, marketing, and digital experience. We have worked with clients in a broad range of industries and markets including consumer packaged goods, business and financial services, technology, lifestyle, education, government, and non-profits.

Let’s Chat

Whether you are building from scratch, refreshing or shifting, our team is ready to jump in and work with you to create memorable brand and communication experiences. We believe design is a social act. All our client solutions are designed and developed through conversation and we invite you to join us at our table to chat.
