The Brief is your daily window into the Canadian creative community and beyond. We aim to bring attention to the best work Canada has to offer, and provide insight into select works from other parts of the globe. Our print magazine has been dedicated to showcasing the finest in Canadian creativity for nearly 30 years, and we strive to deliver even more work on our online properties. Our digital Editorial section includes The Brief, a selection of web-only features, articles featured in our print magazine and opinions by our regular columnists.

Whether you’re an ad agency, a freelancer, a design studio, a photographer or an illustrator, drop us a line with the goods, and we’ll consider you for inclusion in our print or online properties. We're always interested in learning about your latest and greatest work, getting article ideas, event announcements and any other creative community-based opportunities.
