Thinking First since 1994.

T1 is a full-service, independent creative agency in Toronto. Over the last 20+ years, we’ve grown into a fully integrated shop whose capabilities span from video production to XM, brand strategy, sponsorship consultation, and just about everything in between.


We build business. We get our clients promoted. And we never, ever, act without a plan.

Thinking First, together.
It takes a village
(of geniuses).

60+ people. 3 cities. Too many dogs to count. Our offices are filled with exceptionally talented thinkers, planners, and makers. Here are a few of the faces you’ll see leading the charge:

  • The guy who started it all.
    Part-time football coach,
    full-time entrepreneur.

  • Finance + process guru.
    Also a Six Sigma Master
    Black Belt (not joking).

  • Account team leader
    with an intense passion for
    marketing. Also, breakfast.

  • 18+ years of brand
    activation experience.
    But who’s counting?

  • Partner + PhD holder.
    Freakishly good
    marathon runner.

  • Fuelled by a passion
    for tech, collaboration
    & non-dairy flat whites.


  • Just a small town dog
    living in a chew-toy world.

T1 puts Thinking First.
