Awesome. You found us. You may have come looking for Ryan Edwards Communications or Social Lab, but don't worry...you're in the right place. David Jones and Doug Walker have mashed them together into a whole new agency called JAW Advertising. Hang on, isn't "advertising" dead, dying, irrelevant? Isn't everyone else calling themselves everything but an ad agency these days. It may seem like that...in fact Doug and Dave worked for a few of them over the years (and a few PR, digital and social shops as well), but since we don't have a board in New York City telling us what to do, we figured we'd stick with what it is we actually do for a living.

And what we do is Get People Talking. And isn't that what good advertising does? Great ideas, executed well, in the right places, that maximize marketing budgets and help drive our clients' businesses. Sounds like advertising to us.That's enough talking about us. Read on to see what we've been doing for some of our clients.

It's the future! You're checking us out on a mobile device. You may have come looking for Ryan Edwards Communications or Social Lab, but you've found their new home at the newly-launched JAW Advertising. Hang on, isn't "advertising" dead, dying, irelevant?

Ontario Real Estate Association

Realtor Value

During a time of rapidly rising housing prices in Ontario, the dollar amounts paid to Realtors as these homes change hands also rise. So it is no surprise that home buyers and sellers may question whether using a Realtor makes sense when buying our selling their home. Our task was to show the value that Realtors bring to the home buying and selling experience.

Team work makes the dream work

How we do

You know that term "fake it 'til you make it"? Maybe you don't. Ad agencies use it all the time. And it means "we'll gladly use your money to figure out how to do something we have no idea how to do." We don't do that.

Our team is smart, experienced and confident working seamlessly across all the disciplines. We don't pretend to be something we're not. While we're always improving and learning and teaching each other new things, we've got great partners we bring in when we need deep and focused expertise in media planning/buying, SEO/SEM, broadcast/video production, event management, public relations and probably a few other things our clients haven't asked us to figure out for them yet.
