Great clients inspire great work

We’re driven to do incredible work, and have a blast doing it, all while building amazing relationships with our clients.

About us

First off, who is Co.Made Creative?

We’re a niche full-service branding and design studio based in Calgary, Canada. We named ourselves Co.Made because we believe the most effective creative comes from collaboration at all stages of the creative process.

Founded in 2014 with a vision to build a collaborative environment between creative specialists and passionate clients who have a vision to transform the world through design. Our senior level of experience makes for a seamless style of working, allowing us to be effective and efficient at every stage. A majority of our clients have been with us for some time, and have evolved to a point where we are an integral part of their internal team. We continue to learn and push boundaries as a collaborative team.

Our founder and award-winning creative director, Jason Trufyn, started building brands in 1997. He pushed the envelope while developing his skills at other creative agencies, and through the numerous entrepreneurial start-ups. This unique experience is the backbone of how he approaches any creative opportunity. Being your own client brings a whole new appreciation for effective work that many creatives rarely understand. It’s a fine balance between form, function and effectiveness.



Our services

What does Co.Made Creative actually do?

We shape brands through meaningful stories, strategic design thinking and an endless pursuit of perfection. There’s not much we can’t do but we specialize in the following:

  • Brand strategy and brand platform
  • Naming
  • Messaging and content strategy
  • Packaging and label design
  • Advertising
  • Digital and web design
  • Information architecture and content development
  • User experience design
  • Web development and maintenance

Regardless what we do, the most important is that it’s effective and meets your business goals.



Competitive advantage

What makes Co.Made different than other agencies?

We’re not going to hide the fact we are a small firm. In fact, we’re proud of it. The benefits of being small is that we can be selective with whom we work with. And it means you won’t get stuck with a junior project manager or someone learning on the job. You deal directly with the A team. This direct relationship pays dividends in time and money saved by avoiding layers of unnecessary account and project managers. Our team is very nimble and efficient, creating ideas quickly without the bureaucracy of a large traditional agency. But what truly makes us different is that we become part of your internal team, a partner you can rely on.



Suitability and fit

So, who actually benefits from working with you guys?

We’ve worked with start-ups, mid-sized companies and large corporations. To us it’s less about the size of your organization and more about the passion and ambition you have for your company and the drive to do the best work possible. We find we work best with companies that have a leader that understands the value of brand and design, and a smart marketing team that can make decisions fast. If you’ve worked with large agencies in the past, you’ll understand the competitive advantage of working with an agile team who knows you well.

If this seems like a good fit, let’s chat.
