About Hangar 13

Creativity, Design, Photography, Branding.

Wherever you need to be, just stand out with outstanding visuals and persuasive words that bring your brand, your strategy to life.

Guess what?

We can help.

Hangar 13 Art & Design is a bilingual Ottawa-based communications firm with national – and international – reach.

For over 30 years, we’ve been successfully meeting our clients’ goals by delivering powerful communications products and services. You just don’t last that long in this business without seamlessly adapting to new technologies, new techniques while being slavishly dedicated to the timeless values of client service excellence and astonishing creativity.

And the biggest lesson we’ve learned throughout the years? In a noisy, busy world, it’s all about your brand.

Sure, the word’s been overused, but, to us, “brand” is simply short-hand for who you are, what you represent and why people should deal with you.

At Hangar 13, we believe that collaboration with our clients to define and direct their brand is paramount. We work to create a collegial atmosphere whereby our clients’ needs and concerns can be effortlessly communicated, understood, and addressed. This belief, and the inclusive process which accompanies it, creates an end product that’s invariably accurate, authentic, and compelling.

Plus, we’ve found it’s a whole lot more fun doing things this way.

Defining and distilling your brand and its supporting messages is one thing. Telling people about it is quite another. In our fragmented multi-platform universe, Hangar 13 excels at identifying and deploying the best vehicles to drive your brand around town. Or around the country.
