8th Street Shuffle

It was time to shake things up a bit so we’ve sold our tony Saskatoon office. We’re diligently searching for a fun new home in more of a walking neighbourhood. Don’t worry, we’re keeping the latte machine. (We’re not barbarians.)

Bidness Card Acclaim


If you've got one of our cards you know they are a bit unusual. Megan Lane Patrick gave us a mention along with a bunch of other very cool cards in HOW's newsstand issue and online.

We (heart) Microfinance

MEDA was changing the world with microfinance long before it was on the Nobel committee's radar. Grant and Janelle are speaking on marketing at this year's gathering of business leaders from around the world. Conveniently, Toronto is a short train-ride away from their niece, Beth, in Montreal.

Slow News Day

Stun played a little game with city hall and the news story bubbled up to the national level. Thanks to Ian for helping us paint the wall!


International design mag HOW features us in their June issue. Apparently we're "a new breed of design agency". Even better, we're right next to some of our favorite colleagues.

Officially Green

Stun is now a part of the Co-op America Business Network. The rigorous screening process is a pat on the back as we work towards being a little friendlier to the planet and its inhabitants.

Movie Deal!
