We are Jester.

Helping you tell better stories is at the centre of everything we do.

Whether it's a compelling video, an engaging and intuitively functional web site, a powerful brand strategy and implementation, or customized individual or group training, we'll help you share your story with a captivated audience.

In the digital world, 15 years is a lifetime.  When Jennifer Cartier and Susan Murphy founded Jester in 2003, blogging was in its infancy and Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram didn’t exist.  Combining their experience in television production, marketing, design and interactive multimedia (as it was known at the time), Jester became one of the first full-service digital creative agencies in Ottawa, Canada.

Every one of our clients has a unique story to tell.  Through collaboration, Jester will bring these stories to life, digitally.  

We will help you attract, engage, convert, and retain customers.
